Dunkin' Donuts to Celebrate National Doughnut Day

CANTON, Mass. -- Dunkin’ Donuts will mark National Doughnut Day with a sweet nationwide offer. On June 5, participating Dunkin’ Donuts throughout the country will give every customer a free doughnut of their choice with the purchase of any beverage, limit one per customer.

Also on National Doughnut Day, Dunkin’ Donuts will announce the winner of its first-ever "Create Dunkin’s Next Donut" contest. From nearly 130,000 doughnut contest creations submitted online, one of 12 finalists will win a $12,000 grand prize and have their winning doughnut sold in Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the country.

National Doughnut Day, 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, doughnuts 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 doughnut offer will create an opportunity for people to celebrate doughnuts and bring some extra happiness to their day."

Dunkin’ Donuts has more than 8,800 restaurants in 31 countries worldwide.
