It’s time to spread the love for cows today.
Today, July 9, is Cow Appreciation Day. It’s a day to tell cows you love them... and a day to score some free Chick-fil-A!
Chick-fil-A is celebrating its 15th annual Cow Appreciation Day. Every Cow Appreciation Day, Chick-fil-A encourages people to turn to their chicken-only menu. Chick-fil-A is offering free food for customers... under one condition.
You have to dress up as a cow.
Any customer who visits a local restaurant dressed as a cow will receive a free entrée (excluding salads) at Chick-fil-A’s more than 2,400 restaurants nationwide.
Adult customers who dress up in any type of cow attire will be rewarded with a free Chick-fil-A entrée – options include the Egg White Grill or classic Chicken Biscuit during breakfast hours, or the Original Chicken Sandwich or Grilled Nuggets during lunch and dinner hours. Children can receive a free breakfast entrée during breakfast hours or a free Kid’s Meal during lunch and dinner hours for dressing in a cow costume, according to a news release.
The Cow Appreciation Day celebration will last from restaurant opening through 7 p.m. local time, so guests can visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner (check local store listings for individual restaurant hours). To prepare for the day, customers can visit www.CowAppreciationDay.com for a full list of redeemable menu items and cow costume inspiration.
Fans also can share pictures of their costumes on social media by using the hashtag #CowAppreciationDay.
Chick-fil-A began celebrating Cow Appreciation Day in 2005. Last year, more than 1.95 million cow-dressed customers joined the celebration.
