Eat'n Park Restaurants - State's Largest Family Dining Chain - Congratulates Pennsylvania House and Senate for Passing Smoking Ban
Date:6/10/2008

Dining Chain Was First to Go Smokefree, Says Ban Is the Right Thing To Do

PITTSBURGH, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Eat'n Park Restaurants (http://www.eatnpark.com), Pennsylvania's largest family dining chain, congratulates the state's House and Senate for voting in favor of the bill that bans smoking in many public places (http://www.state.pa.us/). Gov. Ed Rendell is expected to sign the bill.

In May 2007, Eat'n Park became the first restaurant chain in the state to voluntarily become smoke-free. "In 2007, when the county and state's actions to ban smoking in restaurants were delayed, we felt compelled to act," said Jeff Broadhurst, CEO, Eat'n Park Hospitality Group (http://www.eatnpark.com). "We are the state's leading family restaurant chain, which means we had a responsibility to protect the health of our team members and guests. Now, many workplaces in the state will be safer for employees and customers."

Eat'n Park Hospitality Group, which employs more than 8,000 people statewide, also is supporting allowing Allegheny County to enact its own, separate smoking ban.

Eat'n Park Restaurants, founded in 1949 as a family carhop, is an award-winning family restaurant chain with 77 locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, and is a member of the Eat'n Park Hospitality Group, a leading, regional multi-concept foodservice company. Other brands operated by the Group include, Park Classic Diner, a retro-eatery reminiscent of the company's roots, Six Penn Kitchen, an upscale American Bistro, Parkhurst Dining Services, a provider of contract-dining services to businesses, universities, and cultural centers; and CURA Hospitality, which offers contract dining and management services for senior living communities. Across its dining brands, the Eat'n Park Hospitality Group employs more than 9,000 team members in seven northeastern and Mid-Atlantic States.
