From our family at United Restaurant Group/TGI Fridays, to yours…
we wish you all a very Happy Holidays!
November 11th, 2016- On Veterans Day, we were very honored to serve Veterans and Active Military a free lunch for their courageous services to our country.
We had an excellent turnout across all stores, and we were thrilled to have hosted many of our nation’s bravest at each of our Fridays restaurants.
We are also very grateful to all our Fridays team members for all their hard work in making this holiday lunch a success. The President & Vice President of United Restaurant Group had some nice things to say regarding Veterans Day 2016…
“Teams, thank you all for your commitment to giving back to our local communities. When you think of the sacrifice our veterans have made it would be nice to think of how we can say thank you in other ways. Suggestions are welcome. Thank you all.” Said Tony Grillo, President of United Restaurant Group.
“I’m very proud of the effort everyone team made to take care of our nation’s veterans yesterday. All of you went above and beyond with staffing and service, and I know it was appreciated by those men and women that have served our country. Here are just a few photos from across our company.” said Louis Quartochi, Vice President of United Restaurant Group.
On Tuesday, November 8th, we filmed our 1st annual “Thanking the Community” TV commercial with a group of top Fridays team members, along with the president of United Restaurant Group, Tony Grillo. We had a fantastic time, and the TV commercial wrapped up nicely!
We are all so pleased to be part of such a terrific team, and we look forward to many more fun times ahead as we transition into the New Year.
Happy Early Holidays to all, from United Restuarant Group/TGI Fridays!
Richmond, VA – November 7th, 2016– Please join us in welcoming back Master Sergeant Dan Drake as General Manager in Cary, NC!
Dan has proudly served our country in the US Air Force overseas in Kuwait, Afghanistan & Iraq. We are so proud of Dan for his service and sacrifice to our country. And we are so honored and excited to have Dan back with us at United Restaurant Group as a GM for TGI Fridays in Cary, NC.
“When Dan returned from his deployment, he presented Tony with a flag that had been flown over Iraq. We have had it framed and it is displayed prominently in the board room of our office. Again, Dan, we are all very proud of your commitment and service to our country and are extremely happy you made it back safely!!” said Louis Quartochi, Vice President of United Restaurant Group.
