Chattanooga-based Steak’n’Shake franchise Debo’s Diners has donated more than $40,000 to the Believe Campaign benefiting Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
 
“We are committed to putting people before profit and improving the lives of our guests, associates, and the members of the communities we serve, and decided the Believe campaign was the perfect fit for us to give back,” said Mike Richman, vice president of Debo’s Diners. “We are thrilled to have raised over $40,000 so far, but we are hoping to raise between $150,000-200,000 by the end of 2019.”  
 
Mr. Richman said local diners can help this franchise meet their contribution goal in two ways. “Every Tuesday we are donating a portion of our sales to the Believe campaign, and every day we are providing guests the opportunity to round up their checks as a contribution to the Believe campaign,” he said.
 
Julie Taylor, president of the Erlanger Health System Foundations, said, “Steak‘n’Shake has been an incredible stakeholder in the Believe Campaign and we are extremely proud of our partnership. They are a business that obviously puts people first and in this case it’s our community’s children.”  
 
Participating “Steak’n’Shake locations include Hixson, Gunbarrel, Dalton, Fort Oglethorpe and Cleveland. Debo’s Diners is a two-time Steak n’ Shake franchise of the year founded 1995 by President Debbie "Debo" Richman
 
Phase one of the new Children’s Hospital at Erlanger consists of a 90,000 square foot outpatient center, currently under construction on E. Third Street.

"Upon completion, the Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center will provide more than 20 pediatric subspecialties and the highest level of care to the children of this region," officials said.

The new facility is scheduled to open in December.
