Announce Partnership
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Rusty Bucket Restaurant & Tavern is pleased to announce it is partnering with LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Columbus to provide discounts to families while supporting healthy eating and reading habits for children.
Rusty Bucket’s Bucketeer Bookworm program, created in 2011, encourages elementary school students, between kindergarten and fifth grade, to read. Families can now pick up a special LEGOLAND Discovery Center Bookmark Tracker at any Rusty Bucket Ohio location and start reading. Young readers track their books on the back of the bookmark, and when they reach 15 books, they will receive a $10 off coupon to the newly opened LEGOLAND at Easton Town Center. After every five books read, kids also receive a complimentary kid’s meal with an adult entrée purchase (dine-in only).
“As a company, Rusty Bucket is committed to providing opportunities for families to connect and make memories, while supporting programs that feed a child’s imagination,” said Gary Callicoat, president, Rusty Bucket. “This was a natural partnership for us as a way to welcome LEGOLAND to Columbus and encourage learning and creativity for young students.”
Rusty Bucket and the LEGOLAND Discovery Center are the perfect pairing for a fun afternoon. The restaurant has several healthy and tasty options on the kid’s menu that meet the nutritional criteria of the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program, based on leading health organizations specific recommendations. Some of the items include the Kids’ Grilled Fish, Veggie Pizza and Grilled Chicken Fingers.
“After ‘building’ a healthy meal for the kids, families can then visit the LEGOLAND Discovery Center to build their own LEGO creations and make even more memories together,” said Callicoat.
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Rusty Bucket and their Bucketeer Bookworm program, “said LEGOAND Discovery Center Columbus General Manager, Jacob Kristensen. “LEGOLAND Discovery Center is dedicated to playful learning, and this partnership gives Ohio families another opportunity for both education and fun.”
