AS A BOARD MEMBER OF THE DENNY’S FRANCHISE ASSOCIATION, DAVE KAHRE CAN HELP END EXTREME CRUELTY

Dave Kahre is a Denny’s franchisee and the CEO of Pride Restaurants, LLC, where he operates several Denny’s restaurants throughout Illinois and Indiana. Kahre is also on the Denny’s Franchise Association board and a member of its Supply Chain Oversight Committee (SCOC).

A Food Logistics article from 2016 states that franchisees sign a purchasing agreement that designates the SCOC as its purchasing agent, agreeing to abide by and fulfill the purchase commitments made by the SCOC on franchisees behalf. This means that Dave Kahre has a significant influence over the products that end up in nearly all of Denny’s restaurants.

Currently, the diner chain purchases pig products from farms that keep pregnant mother pigs in cages so small they can’t turn around. Due to Denny’s refusal to address this extreme cruelty, a nationwide campaign is exposing this abuse and franchisees are facing the consequences through protests and harmful PR.

Until Kahre and the rest of the SCOC address this animal cruelty scandal, they are doing an extreme disservice to Denny’s customers, franchisees, and, most of all, to the animals who are living in misery. 

Keep taking action for mother pigs

Let Dave Kahre know that animal cruelty is unacceptable and ask him to take a stand against cages!

As a member of the Supply Chain Oversight Committee, Mr. Kahre can help thousands of mother pigs confined to tiny metal cages for Denny’s. Over 60 major companies have eliminated or are in the process of eliminating this extremely abusive practice. It’s time to speak up, Mr. Kahre.
