No More Breakfast for smokers at Bob Evans

>>"We recognize that our customers and their families are increasingly interested in dining at non-smoking restaurants, "

I ate at Bob Evans before. Who the he!! said I'm interested in a non-smoking family establishment? I'm interested in a place where I can eat and live freely as a smoker.

Buh-bye, Bob Evans! If I use Lynda's logic, I should stop buying your guys' sausage in the supermarket as well, since I'd be supporting a restaurant that drank the poisonanda.

Richmond restaurant, 19 other Bob Evans' sites to go smoke-free
PALLADIUM-ITEM • June 26, 2008

Bob Evans Restaurants has announced that all restaurants will be
designated non-smoking, effective Wednesday.

The designation includes the restaurant at 401 Commerce Road in
Richmond. The other Richmond Bob Evans site on Mendelson Drive has
been smoke-free since April 1.

The decision to change operations to non-smoking is the result of
customer comments, national and local restaurant industry trends and
the U.S. Surgeon General's report issued June 27, 2006, the company
said in a release.

The change will affect 20 restaurants.

"We recognize that our customers and their families are increasingly
interested in dining at non-smoking restaurants, " said Steve Davis,
chief executive officer of Bob Evans Restaurants. "We hope that this
change will make our restaurants more welcoming."

Bob Evans Farms Inc. owns and operates 571 full-service, family
restaurants in 18 states, primarily in the Midwest, mid-Atlantic and
Southeastern regions of the United States.
