About 2,700 try for free Grand Slam breakfasts

BOARDMAN — Denny’s hit a home run with it’s Grand Slam Breakfast promotion.

The company gave away the breakfasts to all dine-in customers for eight hours today.

The promotion was for a free Grand Slam — two eggs, two pancakes, two sausage links and two slices of bacon.

By the time the promotion was over at 2 p.m. more than 2,000 people had visited the Boardman location on U.S. Route 224.

“I projected 1,200,” said the general manager Roy Main.

When 12:30 p.m. hit, Main said the 2,000 mark was reached and they began giving away rain checks to those who couldn’t wait in the lines.

About 700 rain checks for a free Grand Slam were given out and must be redeemed by Feb. 13, Main said.

“Overall it went very well,” said Main recognizing that his crew did an exceptional job.

“We didn’t run out of food here,” he said.
