Mother’s Day 2024: Restaurant Specials and Promotions

Mother's Day 2024 Restaurant Specials and Promotions

These Food Franchises Celebrate Moms with BOGO Deals and Discounts 

Mother’s Day, celebrated on the second Sunday each May, offers an opportunity to express “our love and reverence for the mothers of our country,” said President Woodrow Wilson when he declared the national holiday in 1914. Prior to this time, various precursors of Mother’s Day can be traced back to the 19th century. Before the Civil War, Ann Reeves Jarvis helped start Mothers’ Day Work Clubs to teach women how to care for their children, and suffragette Julia Ward Howe wrote the Mother’s Day Proclamation in 1870 as a call to action for mothers to promote world peace. 

Following Jarvis’ death in 1905, her daughter, Anna Reeves, conceived of Mother’s Day as a way to honor the sacrifices mothers make for their children. In that spirit, Americans show their moms some love every May and spend tens of billions of dollars annually on gifts and other tokens of appreciation.

In addition to gifts, moms also enjoy a good meal they don’t have to cook or clean up after – and fast-food franchises are more than happy to do their part.

Check out the listing bellow of restaurant discounts and promotions for Mother’s Day 2024 to make mom feel special.
