Waffles being made for teachers

Comfort Inn, which is franchised by Choice Hotels International Inc., has invited area teachers from Jamestown High School to enjoy the hotel’s free signature waffles that will be used as toppings for ice cream along with a variety of fresh fruit and sweet treat toppings.

The event is in honor of the Comfort brand’s National Waffle Day theme, “Say Thank You with Waffles,” and it is from noon to 1:30 p.m. Aug. 20. During the week of Aug. 18 through National Waffle Day on Aug. 24, participating Comfort Inn and Comfort Suites hotels around the U.S. will serve waffles to various groups that make a difference in local communities as a way of showing their gratitude with griddles.

“Although we are in the travel business, the Comfort brand also has strong roots in the local communities we serve,” said Anne Smith, vice president of brand strategy for Choice Hotels International.
