BIBIBOP Asian Grill joins a number of restaurants giving free meals and or discounts to US Veterans on November 11, which is US Veteran’s day. Says Henry Yonky, BIBIBOP director of marketing, on the chain’s website:
This is a great opportunity for us to focus on the well-being of the men and women who focus on keeping us safe.
BIBIBOP Asian Grill, founded by Charley Shin, is an Korean food inspired restaurant chain with 43 locations across the country. A military ID will get active duty military and veterans a free bowl.
I was hoping more Asian owned restaurants would do this for Veteran’s day. I found that there were more offering discounts last year. I am not surprised that fewer do this year, as Asian American restaurants have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, with Asian American unemployment being disproportionately high.
