Saw this and thought it was great from the Bob Evan's Facebook page. What do you think?


At Bob Evans Restaurants, we like to say that we ‘treat strangers like friends, and friends like family.’ Recently, we treated one of our guests, a nursing mother, with less than the heartfelt hospitality our employees pledge to bring to each table, each day. We support the rights of nursing mothers, and would like to offer our sincere apologies to our guest for her recent experience. We are re-educating our teams on local statutes to ensure education and awareness of the rights of nursing moms. We are proud to host the Nurse-In being planned at our Dale Mabry location this Saturday, June 7, and will offer any nursing mother a complimentary meal. We will also donate 10 percent of the day’s receipts to an organization of the affected guest’s choosing. We look forward to the opportunity to demonstrate our support for these moms in their efforts to raise awareness.

I think that's great! (Also funny to me b/c if they're talking about their Dale Mabry location, that's local to me - maybe I should go! lol)

I like that they took action not only to apologize but go one step further with a nurse in & re-educating their employees.

Thanks :). We always go to Bob Evans when we travel through Ohio. I wasn't sure if they were all over the place.

That's amazing. I feel like he took an honest ignorance of the law (by an associate) and made it a learning experience and I think the 10% to a charity of her choosing it totally above and beyond.

That's the best response from a corporation I have ever seen. Kudos to them...though I never go there because the food doesn't impress me. Lol. Maybe we will take a ride and go to the one near us just because of this....
