Dunkin’ Donuts today announced it will be honoring National Donut Day, celebrated this year on Friday, June 1, with a sweet deal for donut lovers everywhere. On June 1, participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide will offer guests a free donut of their choice (while supplies last) with the purchase of any beverage.
National Donut Day, celebrated on the first Friday of June each year, was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.
According to John Costello, chief global marketing and innovation officer at Dunkin’ Brands, it’s the perfect day to celebrate the joy that donuts bring to people each and every day.
“With our heritage as the country’s donut leader, we know best that donuts can make any moment in the day a little sweeter,” Costello says. “We’re proud to once again make it easy and affordable for everyone to celebrate National Donut Day by enjoying a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts with the purchase of any beverage.”
