Burger King Corp. is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with free fries for everyone in America. On March 17 and 18, customers can stop in at participating Burger King restaurants to celebrate the luck of the Irish with some gold of their own: a “pot” of golden-brown, crispy french fries.

Of course no St. Patrick’s Day is complete without a little green, so guests can dip their hot and crispy fries into a one-of-a-kind, green St. Paddy’s Sauce from Heinz.

“Free fries for St. Patrick’s Day weekend is the Burger King way of sharing the luck of the Irish with all of our guests,” says Alex Macedo, senior vice president, North America marketing, Burger King Corp. “We’re especially excited to have teamed up with Heinz, makers of America’s Favorite Ketchup, to offer a fun and festive green dipping sauce on the side.”

The french fries at Burger King restaurants offer guests a high-quality, thicker-cut potato, giving each bite a more fluffy, potato flavor on the inside and crispy, golden-brown on the outside.
