Two trucking trade groups have collaborated with the International Franchise Association to guarantee that truckers, who are bringing essential goods to our homes, are able to eat and would not be arrested for that.
The Owner–Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) and The American Trucking Associations (ATA) have partnered with The International Franchise Association (IFA) to assure that drivers are able to eat on the road. During this period of social distancing and quarantine, truck drivers are the ones who are keeping our economy running. However, due to trucks being too huge to fit in a drive-thru, and to current restrictions with dining inside – it became almost impossible for drivers to do their jobs and not die from starvation.
The International Franchise Association and broader franchise community are rallying to accommodate truck drivers and communicate this to the trucking community. Below are a few bargains and comments from a few of America’s greatest chains:
Firehouse Subs would completely adore serving the trucking community. With over 1000 locations over 46 states, truck drivers can discover a close-by Firehouse Subs by logging into their site or downloading the Firehouse Subs app from the App Store or Google Play.
Most of our eateries are found in a variety of malls and strip shopping centers which can handle semi’s. Our Quick Protect To Go benefit would be most valuable for drivers since they can put their order on our site/ app and it'll at that point be carry-out prepared. Once the driver is stopped, they can go into the eatery and pick up their order at our Quick Protect To Go area.
SONIC’s mobile app permits anybody, counting truck drivers, to order at the closest Sonic. For an ordinary drive-in, truck drivers can stop their truck and walk up to the porch to have their orders conveyed to them.
Ruby Tuesday will offer 25% off to truckers on any to-go order between Noon – 8pm. If you order online enter “25” where prompted.
