From Aug. 5 through 14, diners will receive up to two complimentary kid’s meals with each adult entree and drink purchase. Children must be present, and the Kids Eat Free special may not be combined with other offers.

According to the National Retail Federation, 76.4 percent of families with school-age children will change their spending because of the economy, the lowest in the seven years of tracking.

“Back to school shopping can really impact a family’s budget,” said Diana Willis,  owner-operator of Jason’s Deli of Southwest Florida.  “With the State of Florida tax-free weekend August 5-7, we are kicking off our eighth year of giving our local families a well-deserved break.”

In 2011, Parents magazine recognized Jason’s Deli as the No. 1 family restaurant chain in the nation, based on an analysis of food content, including calories, fat, saturated fat and sodium. Editors also compared the quality of ingredients (such as offering organic milk or antibiotic–free chicken), and conveniences including call-ahead seating, online ordering, crayons for children and the availability of high chairs and booster seats.

Jason’s Deli was the first national restaurant to ban high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats from its food. In addition, Jason’s Deli eliminated artificial colors and dyes from its menus.
