Olive Garden’s Labor Day Lunch Surprise

On this Labor Day, a local restaurant is serving those who serve the community day in and day out.

In what they call ‘Hospitality on a Visit,’ employees from Olive Garden made a special trip to Zanesville’s Public Safety Center. While many have the day off, the men and women who serve and protect are hard at work, so Olive Garden thought the Zanesville Police and Fire Departments deserved a nice lunch.

"We do multiple places around town, and this is one of the places we haven’t visited, and felt they deserved it," says Austin Rutter, Olive Garden employee.

Those who were on duty had a nice surprise for lunch Monday.

"We work every holiday, not our particular shift, but a shift works every holiday. We work 365 days a year, and it’s nice for people to do things like this for us," says Gale Law of the Zanesville Fire Department.

‘Hospitality on a Visit’ is a national program that Olive Garden has been holding for 9 years.
