Here’s a time where you shouldn’t be chicken about dressing up like a cow.
Tuesday is Chick-fil-A’s 14th annual Cow Appreciation Day, which the chicken chain describes as its largest single-day customer appreciation event.
For sporting cow spots, waving a cow bell or dressing “udderly crazy,” customers will be rewarded with free food at Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide. The giveaway is from the time restaurants open through 7 p.m.
“Every year, we’re thrilled with the number of customers who come out and celebrate Cow Appreciation Day with us,” said Jon Bridges, Chick-fil-A’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer in a statement. “It’s a great opportunity for guests to celebrate by exploring our menu.”
You don’t have to dress from “head-to-hoof” to get the freebie. Cow accessories count.
Children get a free kid’s meal for dressing up and cow-clad adults have the choice of nearly every item on the Chick-fil-A menu except for salads.
For breakfast, options include the Egg White Grill, Chicken, Egg and Cheese Bagel and Chick-n-Minis.
For lunch and dinner, choose from the classic Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, Chicken Deluxe Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap, other sandwiches, Chick-n-Strips and nuggets.
Expect long lines and crowds of chicken lovers for the annual event. Last year, 1.8 million participated, the company estimated.
