On Wednesday, December 6, 2006, Big Boy spokesman Tony Michaels announced to press correspondents that Big Boy Restaurants, LLC will sponsor a nationwide promotion on March 14, 2007 in observance of pi day. Big Boy will award customers with "pi" certificates that will enable them to redeem a ten-inch fruit pie from any Big Boy restaurant within the continental United States free of charge (Hawaii locations excepted).
"Big Boy has always been a family restaurant. This is not just another marketing scheme engineered to attract consumers. This is much more than that—we are advocates of family time and lifelong learning. We take pride in the personal relationship we have with our costumers," Michaels explained.
On this day, customers may also receive a complimentary "pi" breakfast apple with maple syrup (pictured above).
Michaels added, "We think children will enjoy this aspect of the March 14 experience. How many restaurants do you know of that serve a breakfast like this that not only healthy and educational, but fun? This is something unique, and that's what we're aiming to do—create an experience that kids will look back on and say, 'do you remember when…?' 'That was so cool!' Like I said, we want to make this a unique family affair."
At the end of the press conference, Mr. Michaels added that he expects restaurants nationwide will be packed and suggests that you call ahead one week in advance to reserve your table if you plan on attending.
