A Golden Anniversary for Perkins(R) Restaurants & Bakeries

 In-Restaurant Promotions & Launch of New Company Website Commemorate 50th


    MEMPHIS, Tenn., July 21 /EMWNews/ -- Since its humble beginnings as

a single pancake shop that opened its doors in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1958,

the Perkins Restaurant & Bakery chain has been serving up delicious

breakfast, lunch and dinner specialties, and irresistible desserts to

discerning guests in 34 states and five Canadian provinces. In celebration

of its 50th Anniversary, a milestone shared with Jack Kilby's invention of

programs including an eClub, interactive location finder and maps, onsite

driving directions, and an invitation to "Meet at Perkins." The

of in-restaurant promotions that guests at Perkins Restaurants & Bakeries

throughout the country have been enjoying since July 1. These include

several menu items especially created for Perkins 50th Anniversary

including a "Crazy Cookie" tin featuring a dozen cookies each of which are

half sugar and half chocolate chip; an Anniversary Platter which includes a

stack of three pancakes, two eggs and a cup of seasonal fruit; and not to

be outdone, the irresistible Wildberry Silk Pie (photo available upon

ganache topped with wildberry silk mousse and covered with whipped cream.

    According to Cheryl Ahlbrandt, Senior Vice President of Marketing and

Research & Development, "While things have changed quite a bit since Dwight

D. Eisenhower was in office and a gallon of gasoline cost 25 cents, Perkins

tradition of offering high quality, distinctive food remains the hallmark

of our company as does appealing to the evolving tastes and preferences of

our guests. Our anniversary specials, and our new user-friendly website are

both testament to Perkins overriding commitment to providing for a positive

experience whether that be in restaurant or on-line." Sam Hanhan, Principal

at Slingshot Interactive, , the San Diego

based web development firm that designed Perkins new website adds, "Perkins

single minded objective of ensuring trouble free access to its menu,

locations, promotions, career and franchising opportunities and more, has

been the key priority throughout the design and implementation process. As

around the country for a commemorative 50th Anniversary Cookbook which will

be available at participating locations beginning in late September 2008.

    1958 may have been the year that VIPs, celebrities and household names

including Prince Albert II, Kevin Bacon, Christiane Amanpour and Jeff

Foxworthy were born, but to the Perkins Restaurant & Bakery chain, it is

the year that marks the beginning of a restaurant success story. Today

Perkins is the leading operator and franchisor of 483 full service family
