Note from our Veterans Support Specialist/Counselor:
Thanks to the generosity of a local Non-Profit organization, we have an opportunity to provide canned food and frozen meat free of charge to Veterans at the Veterans Resource Center. Before we proceed, we would like to know how many veterans are interested in getting frozen meat from Central Market. Please contact Teresa Lin, Veterans Support Specialist/Counselor at 425-640-1617 or Chris Szarek, VRC Director at 425-640-1775.

Sometimes simply saying “Thank you” is not enough and we understand that being in the Military is a job for all family members. So here at Old Country Buffet, Ryan’s, Hometown Buffet, Fire Mountain and Country Buffet, this is our way of saying “Thank you” to all the men and women who serve past and present and their families who support them!!
