is honoring all military personnel and veterans this week for their amazing service and sacrifices by offering them a free meal. 

Military Appreciation week is September 5th – 11th and any active- duty military or veteran that visits either of the new Cafe Rio restaurants in or Olney, Md., will receive a free meal.

Customer can also show their appreciation for our men and women in uniform and verterans by contributing to a donation jar that will be next to each cash register. All donations go to the Hope
for the Warriors foundation, a non-profit organization focusing on our wounded warriors.

“Giving back to the men and women who bravely serve our country is the least we can do,” Dave Gagnon, CEO of Cafe Rio Mexican Grill and former US Marine, said.  “No one will ever be able to truly pay
them back for their bravery. All we want to do is say, from the very bottom of our hearts, ‘thank you.’”

The company, new to the east coast as of 2011, now has a restaurant location in Manassas. The company donates to Hope for the Warriors foundation with each new store opening and will continue to help the foundation by donting 25 cents of every 'Enchilada Style' burrito ordered.

To date, Cafe Rio Mexican Grill has contributed over $15,000 toward getting wounded warriors the help they need.

The local eatery also said a big 'thank you' to  teachers and education professionals of  Manassa and surrounding communities offering them the week of August 29th-September 4th.
