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

Kevin Coveney, CEO of Retro Concepts, LLC, runs two Denny’s restaurants in Zanesville and Cambridge, both in Ohio. Coveney is also a Denny’s Franchise Association board member and its Supply Chain Oversight Committee’s Chair.

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 Kevin Coveney 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.

Coveney is responsible for doing what’s best for the franchisees he represents, yet by ignoring this animal cruelty, he is failing them. As the Chair of the SCOC, he needs to step up and address the extreme animal abuse in Denny’s supply chain.

Take action for mother pigs

Let Kevin Coveney know that animal cruelty is unacceptable and ask him to take a stand against it.

Kevin Coveney holds an influential position that can impact the lives of thousands of mother pigs confined to tiny metal cages. Instead, he has remained silent while these animals continue to suffer.
