Last year my husband, dad and I dressed up like Big Boy. Why, you ask? Because it was Frisch’s Founder’s Day and everyone who wore a Big Boy costume got a FREE Big Boy sandwich.

You’ve still got a chance to get in on the fun this year.


Frisch’s Founder’s Day is an annual event held on May 3 where Frisch’s customers are encouraged to visit dressed as Big Boy. Those that come donning the red and white checks will receive a FREE Big Boy sandwich.


This year I’m going to step my game by creating a better costume that I’ll be sharing about soon.


Frisch’s Big Boy Celebrates 3rd Annual Founder’s Day on May 3

Customers Invited To Dress Up Like Big Boy for Free Sandwich

   Frisch’s Restaurants will celebrate the birthday of founder David Frisch with its third annual Founder’s Day event on Saturday, May 3. In honor of Founder’s Day, Frisch’s will award a free Big Boy platter to any customer who visits Frisch’s Big Boy fully dressed as Big Boy. A free Big Boy sandwich will be awarded for partial Big Boy attire.


   David Frisch was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on May 3, 1902. In 1939, he opened The Mainliner, the Cincinnati area’s first year-round, drive-in restaurant. Nine years later, the first Frisch’s Big Boy opened on Central Parkway in Cincinnati.

   Aside from establishing a tradition of family-friendly dining, Frisch was also deeply committed to local civic and religious causes and maintained a strong commitment to the community. David Frisch is regarded as an industry pioneer, and his legacy remains a driving influence in present-day culture at Frisch’s Restaurants.

  1. I love their breakfast bar and I also love their Big Boy with an extra side of tartar sauce to dip my fries in!

  2. I love their soups…bean and vegetable. But, to go along with that, I will usually order a Buddy Boy or Fish Sandwich, fries, and either a Strawberry Pie Baby or Pumpkin Pie slice, depending on the season!
