Duck Donuts, known for serving warm, delicious and Made-to-Order!® doughnuts, announced its kickoff to summer with a sweet National Donut Day Beach Bash. To celebrate, on Friday, June 7, every customer will receive one free bare, cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar doughnut, in-store only, no purchase necessary.
“As a brand that originated in the beach town of Duck, we felt it was only appropriate to pay homage to our roots and beach-inspired atmosphere with a unique Sweet Summer Beach Bash to celebrate our favorite day of the year, National Donut Day,” said Russ DiGilio, founder and CEO of Duck Donuts Franchising Company. “Our warm, delicious donuts are a vacation for your taste buds and we look forward to serving our classic donuts all day to our loyal customers!”
National Donut Day, which is traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of June, was established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. To spread the excitement of the holiday throughout the community, stores will drop off donuts to The Salvation Army and other local businesses, schools, police stations, fire departments and more.
Made with fresh orange zest and juice, customers can enjoy the flavors of summer with the return of orange icing and continuation of Key lime, available at all locations June 3. Duck Donuts is also showcasing the donuts of summer in its limited-time Popsicle Assortment featuring ice cream-inspired donut combinations such as:
Citrus Pop - Orange icing and lemon drizzle
Neapolitan - Strawberry icing with Oreo crumbles and marshmallow drizzle
Patriotic Pop – Glazed with patriotic sprinkles
Key Lime Pie Pop – Key lime icing with graham cracker crumbs
