April 22, 2019 — Teachers inspire, lead, and leave a lasting impact on their communities. Leading up to Teacher Appreciation Week May 6th through the 10th, McAlister’s invited guests to nominate a deserving teacher in their lives. Thank you to all our guests who nominated a teacher during the nomination period, which ended on April 21st.
Selected winning teachers will receive a $1,000 Visa Gift Card and a catered classroom treat during Teacher Appreciation Week.
We'll also be celebrating teachers in a couple of other ways during Teacher Appreciation Week.
To celebrate all teachers do, we'll be offering them free tea all week long. Read more and RSVP here.

Knoxville, TN. (April 10, 2019) — At McAlister's, we aim to show genuine hospitality and give that little something extra. We want show our guests appreciation in ways they don't even expect.
That's why we recently gave these "I'm in the Club" Super Guests to some regulars in Alcoa and Fountain City.
"Their response was so priceless," said Brittany Fremming, GM at our Alcoa location. Some, she said, even visited the next day wearing their shirts.
We were thrilled with the response, and it was an honor to show a few of our faithful guests that they're in the club.
