June 22, 2020, Baltimore, MD: MISSION BBQ announced today that it will partner with Honor Flight Network through the sales of the restaurant's iconic American Heroes Cups. Beginning June 22, MISSION BBQ customers can purchase a seasonal grey American Heroes beverage cup at any MISSION BBQ location.
The American Heroes Cup retails at $3.99 per cup, and MISSION BBQ will donate $2 from each cup directly to Honor Flight Network. Customers are also invited to bring back their American Heroes cup on return visits to the restaurant and pay $0.99 for a beverage. The Honor Flight American Heroes cup sales will last through August 10, 2020.
To date, MISSION BBQ and their loyal customers have donated over $10 million to local charities in the communities in which they serve since their inception in 2011. MISSION BBQ estimates customers will donate more than $100,000 to Honor Flight Network. The actual donation amount will be shared following the donation period. "I am always amazed and deeply touched at the generosity of our customers who purchase the American Hero cups," said Steve Newton, co- founder of MISSION BBQ. "It is not uncommon for our regular customers to purchase multiple American Heroes cups because they know they are giving back to our service men and women."
"Every day we strive to celebrate what makes our country great and to honor those who gave their lives for us," said Bill Kraus, co-founder of MISSION BBQ. "We are truly privileged to be partnering with Honor Flight Network, an organization that shares a very similar mission and values as our own."
