Free fries: Restaurant to thank customers with free food


“Free fries Wednesday” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, but I am guessing that won’t bother fans of Penn Station East Coast Subs.

The fast food chain with several Miami Valley locations will offer a free small order of its fresh cut fries to customers as a ‘thank you’ on Wednesday.

The fries cut from unpeeled Idaho potatoes and fried in free peanut oil are an undeniable hit.

“Our fries aren’t like anything else you’ll find,” Craig Dunaway, president of Penn Station Inc., said in a press release. “Our customers crave our fresh-cut fries, and we are excited to offer them to our customers and neighbors as a complimentary token of our appreciation.”

Founded in Cincinnati in 1985, Penn Station is known for its fries, lemonade and hot and cold subs.

The chain has more than 250 restaurants in Ohio and 12 other states.

All but two Penn Station locations are owned by franchisees.

The chain hopes to open 40 new restaurants in 2013 and 45 in 2014.

There are about 10 locations in the Dayton area.
