Miltary, First Responders, 50% Off At Coal Fire

Miltary, First Responders, 50% Off At Coal Fire

In an effort to honor and thank those who have dedicated their lives to the service of others, Coal Fire restaurants of Northern Virginia will be hosting ‘Military & First Responders Appreciation Week’ from Monday, December 11th to Sunday, December 17th. Anyone showing their military or first responder identification cards, active duty or retired, will receive fifty percent off their entire check, excluding alcohol.

The Coal Fire brand was initially introduced to the Northern Virginia market in 2014 with its Burke location in the Rolling Valley Shopping Center. The continued success of the restaurant chain has since brought two new locations to Loudoun County in the past year – one just outside of South Riding in Dulles Landing Shopping Center, and one in Cascades Overlook Town Center, near Route 7 in Sterling.

Attempting to familiarize the Northern Virginia community with Coal Fire, the month of December has been dedicated to recognizing the importance of the many roles of its residents.

Along with the Military and First Responders Appreciation Week, retail and restaurant employees were given a fifty-percent discount earlier in the month. Teachers and other school employees will be given the same discount during the week of winter break.

Coal Fire originated in Ellicott City in 2009 by CEO Dennis Sharoky, his sons Justin and Eric, and Chief Operations Officer Brian Kannee. The family-run business is committed to all fresh ingredients and attention to detail during the preparation and cooking process; thus, evolved their slogan, “charred to perfection”. With their award-winning pizza being the focal point of their brand, the coal-fired oven is in plain view at each restaurant, so guests can see the attention given to every pizza. Sandwiches, pastas, and salads are other delicious options for guests, with a takeout option for those on the go. All Coal Fire locations are full-service restaurants, and an upscale-casual atmosphere is a great option for lunch, dinner, happy hour and special occasions.

Coal Fire also offers catering options for off-site events and meetings, as well as a fundraising program to help support the community. For more information about
