PITTSBURGH, PA – October 31, 2017-  This November 2017, Kings Family Restaurant is celebrating 50 years strong in Western PA. Its remarkable history of comfort foods, celebrations and community spirit is unprecedented in this market.  Today, Kings looks to “warm up” to the next generation of customers and finds strength in the local growing restaurant scene.

Warm cinnamon rolls, ice cream, famous chili and hot roasted turkey sandwiches are the foods that made Kings famous. The chain will keep with its signature foods but introduces a new 50th menu.  Younger guests, those perhaps on date night, may be enticed with trendier foods like craft burgers, pretzel bites, spinach artichoke dip and chips, and bourbon glazed salmon.

Kings is planning celebrations for its 50 years of service to the community with many exciting events throughout the next year.  It all kicks off with a golden anniversary party at its flagship location on Lincoln Highway in North Versailles on Saturday, November 4th.  Star Pittsburgh 100.7 FM, prizes, airbrush tattoos, balloon artist for younger guests and more are scheduled from 10 AM – 1 PM.

“As Kings celebrates and reflects on its 50th anniversary, we also look forward to an exciting future. Come celebrate with us November 4th and 5th,” said Nick Hrehovchak. “We want to show our appreciation to each guest for making us a great.”

At all 25 locations, on November 4th, Kings is offering guests a buy-one-get-one free breakfast, lunch or dinner.  See locations for details.  Then on Sunday November 5th, the first 50 guests will receive a slice of Kings Famous Apple Pie & Cinnamon Ice Cream for free, and then just 50 cents all day.

“Kings is a group of dedicated people that are grateful for the support of the community and we will always be a group that pays it forward,” said Hrehovchak.  In October, Kings employees and customers fundraised for the American Cancer Society, and Kings presented to the Mario Lemieux Foundation a $10,000 fundraising donation to benefit the Austin’s Playroom Military Project initiative.

Kings Family Restaurant is based in North Versailles, PA and is a chain of 25 family style restaurants, with 24 throughout Western Pennsylvania and one in Wintersville, Ohio.  Founded in 1967, the restaurant group averages 500,000 customers every month and employs nearly 1,000 people.

Accepting the 10,000$ check




PITTSBURGH – October 23, 2017- Kings Family Restaurant announced their commitment and partnership with the Mario Lemieux Foundation in March of this year.  Today, Kings is proud to present its first donation, $10,000, to the Foundation and its founder, Mario Lemieux.  Kings donated a portion of its sales from every Kid’s Chicken Tender entrée purchased, April through September, to Austin’s Military Playrooms, an initiative of the Mario Lemieux Foundation.

Kings is celebrating 50 years in Western Pennsylvania November 1, and as part of its long-standing service, Kings will continue its fundraising efforts for the Foundation.  For November, a portion of sales from its “Hat Trick Breakfast” will contribute to the next donation anticipated in first quarter of 2018.

The first Austin’s Military Playroom was donated to the Warrior Transition Unit at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in MD.  The success of this playroom led to the creation a second playroom at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton in CA, and in 2015, a third playroom at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in NC.  A fourth playroom is planned for 2018.  Austin’s Military Playroom Project creates playrooms for military personnel and their children that provide comfort, warmth and love for these very special families.
