While the debate about public breastfeeding continues to rage, Spur Steak Ranches have taken a stand – encouraging breastfeeding at their branches…
The restaurant chain has erected new posters at its restaurants stating that it supports breastfeeding, and that all moms are welcome to breastfeed their children in the restaurants.
“Spur is a family-friendly restaurant‚ which places a great amount of emphasis on families‚ especially children; hence breastfeeding is welcomed at Spur‚” the policy poster says.
Following the placement of posters in various facilities across the country, the chain has been met with much support from grateful moms and families.
According to the chain, “breastfeeding has always been allowed, however, we hope that making our policy visible, mothers will not feel the need to seek permission to feed their children.”
Restaurant chain Spur as a family focused eatery has a policy to encourage open breastfeeding. No staff member may reprimand a mom or ask them to move to a designated area out of sight. Are you put off by such or is it about time? #702Breakfast

So elated to hear about @SpurRestaurant breastfeeding policy. Hope this will encourage other restaurants to follow suit. Thanks for taking the moral high ground lead. Family is what truly matters to Spur.
