DETROIT -- Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, is marking National Donut Day with a sweet offer that will help Metro Detroiters celebrate the joy and fun of donuts. On June 5, 2009, participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants throughout Metro Detroit will give every customer a free donut of their choice, with the purchase of any beverage, limit one per customer.
In addition, participating Metro Detroit Dunkin’ Donuts will also provide hockey fans with the opportunity to showcase their team pride by offering special red and white donuts throughout the championship finals.
“Metro Detroiters take their hockey seriously, so we thought these red and white donuts would be a wonderful way for our customers to have some fun while supporting the home town team,” said Nick Spencer, Michigan Marketing Manager for Dunkin’ Donuts.
Also on National Donut Day, Dunkin’ Donuts will announce the winner of its first-ever “Create Dunkin’s Next Donut” contest. From nearly 130,000 donut contest creations submitted online, one of 12 finalists will win a $12,000 grand prize and have their winning donuts sold in Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the country. Americans can still vote for their favorite finalist online at www.dunkindonuts.com/donut.
National Donut Day, which is held the first Friday of June each year, was started by the Chicago Salvation Army more than 70 years ago. According to Dunkin’ Donuts’ Brand Marketing Officer Frances Allen, the day holds particular relevance in 2009. “From office meetings to Sunday get-togethers, donuts are one of those foods that lift people's spirits and bring genuine delight to any situation. And now more than ever, Americans are seeking those small moments of happiness," she said. "We hope our free donut offer will create an opportunity for people to celebrate donuts and bring some extra happiness to their day.”
Dunkin' Donuts has led the donut category for nearly 60 years, selling 2.5 million donuts and Munchkin™ donut hole treats every day.
