CINCINNATI — Frisch’s Restaurants will celebrate the birthday of founder David Frisch with its third annual Founder’s Day event on Saturday, May 3. In honor of Founder’s Day, Frisch’s will award a free Big Boy platter to any customer who visits Frisch’s Big Boy fully dressed as Big Boy. A free Big Boy sandwich will be awarded for partial Big Boy attire.
“My grandfather loved Big Boy - both the character and the sandwich - and we are excited to celebrate his birthday with this fun Founder’s Day event,” says Craig Maier, president and CEO, Frisch’s Restaurants. “Frisch’s is a family tradition and we invite everyone to join us for a festive day of humor and celebration.”
David Frisch was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on May 3, 1902. In 1939, he opened The Mainliner, the Cincinnati area’s first year-round, drive-in restaurant. Nine years later, the first Frisch’s Big Boy opened on Central Parkway in Cincinnati.
Aside from establishing a tradition of family-friendly dining, Frisch was also deeply committed to local civic and religious causes and maintained a strong commitment to the community. David Frisch is regarded as an industry pioneer, and his legacy remains a driving influence in present-day culture at Frisch’s Restaurants.
Customers are invited to dress up head-to-toe in a Big Boy costume to receive a free Big Boy platter. Customers will receive a free Big Boy sandwich if they wear a partial costume. A printable paper costume is available at www.frischs.com. The offer is only valid for dine-in customers on Saturday, May 3, and will be honored at all Frisch’s Big Boy locations in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
