Parents Television Council Awards Darden Restaurants Advertiser Seal of Approval

 

LOS ANGELES, CA - The Parents Television Council™, the nation's most influential advocacy organization protecting children against sex, violence and profanity in entertainment named Darden Restaurants an Advertiser Seal of Approval recipient for 2005-2006.

The award salutes corporations that promote quality entertainment, rather than programs that are filled with gratuitous sexual content, graphic violence or profanity.

 

"We commend Darden Restaurants for being a responsible advertiser," PTC Executive Director Tim Winter said. "By placing their advertisements on shows that are positive and not violent or sexually graphic, Darden Restaurants shows its respect for American families."

 

Darden Restaurants, Inc. is the world's largest casual dining restaurant company in sales and market share. It operates over 1,400 Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Bahama Breeze, Smokey Bones Barbeque & Grill and Seasons 52 restaurants in North America.
