NEW ALBANY, Ohio, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Once a timeless summer tradition, road trips are back on the rise representing 39 percent of all vacations taken1. Americans in general are spending an average of almost $2,000 (10 percent more than last year) on vacations. The month of July is peak travel season and when most find themselves gearing up for road trips2. To celebrate the feeling of summer bliss, hitting the open road and exploring new places, Bob Evans Restaurants is declaring the month of July National Road Trip Month.

At Bob Evans Restaurants, road trips are even more meaningful, as they are one of the reasons that Bob himself started the business. Known for his hospitality, Bob always told the people he came across to stop by the farm for a bite to eat if they were on the road. All the more reason to celebrate!

Building on Bob's road trip heritage and as a special touch this summer season, Bob Evans Restaurants has added new items to its menu to make sure everyone is "fueled up" along the way. This summer, the menu will feature fan favorite breakfasts starting as low as $4.99 as well as new Broccoli Salad and Herb Roasted Chicken – marinated and seasoned with garden herbs, topped with a citrus garden herb sauce and garnished with a fresh cut lemon, starting at $6.99. Seasonal fan-favorites, including Strawberry Supreme Pie and freshly baked Lemonade Bread are also back on the menu!

In addition, Bob Evans has partnered with the Ohio Board of Tourism and Marathon and are asking consumers to share their favorite Ohio trip moment for a chance to win restaurant and gasoline gift cards along with other fun Ohio gear. No purchase necessary to win. Contest will run from June 1July 31, 2018.  For more information visit
