Tony Luke Jr. Goes All Hands On Deck with the U.S. Navy and Messlords

Tony Luke Jr. dishes up his signature cheesesteaks with Messlords at the Naval Base Point Loma.

I look at being a Messlord as a way to fulfill my responsibility to volunteer and support the U.S. Armed Forces whenever I am asked."
— Tony Luke Jr.
GLASSBORO, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, August 23, 2016 / -- Tony Luke Jr. of the Tony Luke’s Cheesesteak franchise recently teamed up with Messlords -- a group of esteemed chefs who travel around the world to feed U.S. troops -- and the United States Navy Morale, Wellness and Recreation program (MWR) to share his famous Philly cheesesteak for the women and men of the Naval Base Point Loma (San Diego).

“I had a great time sharing a taste of Philly with the brave men and women of the U.S. Navy – it was both a great honor and truly humbling experience,” Tony Luke Jr. said. “I also look at being a Messlord as a way to fulfill my responsibility to volunteer and support the U.S. Armed Forces whenever I am asked.”

Tony Luke Jr. spent last week with other celebrity chefs at the Navy Base Point Loma working together with Navy cooks in their kitchen (or, as the Navy call it, the “galley”) preparing a meal for the personnel who are stationed at Point Loma. The guest chefs were fully engaged and accessible to answer questions and share their professional expertise as both chefs and entrepreneurs with the sailors in attendance.

As the franchise continues to expand, Tony Luke’s has always stayed true to its core values: in addition to supporting military personnel, the franchise just recently donated food to hundreds of police officers during the Democratic National Convention in July.
