Friday is national donut day and Stan’s Donuts and Coffee is celebrating with a free glazed donut! For the entirety of June 3rd, Stan’s customers will receive a free donut cake– no purchase necessary.
Falling on the first Friday in June, National Donut Day is a Chicago-based tradition. In 1938, Chicago’s Salvation Army wanted to honor members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. They started a fundraiser with the goal of raising funds during the Great Depression. Since then, it’s become a nationally celebrated event with various donut shops giving away treats. Other shops are also ringing in the day in their own way.
Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts throughout the day, along with a BOGO deal, and a full box of Original Glazed dozen for $1.00. Dunkin’ is offering a free donut with any drink purchase. Do-Rite Donuts is also offering special deals to celebrate. Firecakes Craft Donuts is giving away a free donut to the first 100 customers at any of their locations.
