— Primanti Bros. has made a not-so-subtle romantic gesture.
The chain’s Beavercreek location has said it will pay for the wedding of all couples who get engaged at their restaurant on Valentine’s Day. And they’re for real — an exclusive, all-expenses-paid wedding ceremony complete with Primanti Bros.’ Almost Famous sandwiches at the company’s original restaurant in Pittsburgh’s historic Strip District this summer.
Are you woo’d yet?
“Sometimes folks — mainly guys — don’t need the added pressure of an expensive restaurant when they are trying to pop the question,” said Chris Garcia, operations manager for the 86-year-old restaurant chain known for its signature “Almost Famous” sandwich, which always includes grilled meat, melted cheese, French fries and coleslaw piled between two slices of thick-sliced Italian bread. “Here, they can have fun, a great meal, and a free, catered wedding ceremony to boot. It’s a no-brainer.”
The only rule is customers need to show up to their local Primanti Bros. restaurant and pop the question on Feb. 14, 2019 — Valentine’s Day. They are asked to let the restaurant’s general manager know that they’ve sealed the deal and they will receive more information about the free summer group wedding ceremony.
All Primanti Bros. locations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Michigan and Indiana are participating in the “Love at First Bite” engagement promotion. Primanti Bros. is located at 2430 N. Fairfield Road in Beavercreek.
