Chickie’s & Pete’s will be taking their annual celebration of Crabfries to new heights this year as they introduce Crabfries Week from Monday, July 11 through July 15. As is their 8-year tradition, all sales from $1 Crabfries orders on Wednesday, July 13, will be donated to The Fraternal Order of Police Survivor Fund.

“We are back bigger than ever this year with one of our favorite Chickie’s & Pete’s traditions, Crabfries for Heroes, benefitting the FOP Survivor Fund. It’s an honor to be able to give back to such a great organization,” says Pete Ciarrocchi, Chairman, and CEO of Chickie’s & Pete’s.

2022 marks the first year Chickie’s & Pete’s will be officially returning with their $1 Crabfries promotion on Wednesday, July 13th, since the COVID-19 pandemic. In celebration of its return, Chickie’s & Pete’s will be extending their typical one-day promotion to an entire week of festivities surrounding their World Famous Crabfries.

“We are very excited about the return of the Crabfries for Heroes event,” adds John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5. “While the last few years have been difficult for everyone, we have continued to go to Pete and Chickie’s & Pete’s for help when we needed it, and we have never been turned away. In fact, we are always embraced. This man and his team live their lives by being a part of our community every day and supporting our officers day in and day out.”
