Dunkin’ Donuts said it will give customers a free doughnut of their choice with the purchase of a beverage on June 4 in celebration of National Doughnut Day.
National Doughnut Day, which was founded by the Chicago Salvation Army in 1938, is held annually on the first Friday of June. It was originally intended to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
"Doughnuts have a special place in our country's history and culture, creating moments of genuine delight and bringing people together at home work and at play," said John Costello, chief global customer and marketing officer for Dunkin' Brands Inc.
Dunkin’ Donuts, a division of Canton-based Dunkin’ Brands Inc., has more than 9,000 restaurants operating in 31 countries worldwide. The free doughnut offer is available only at participating locations.
