If you’re planning to ‘steer’ clear of black cats and sidewalk cracks on Friday the 13th, why not change your luck by dressing as a cow instead? On Friday, July 13, Chick-fil-A® restaurants nationwide will celebrate its annual Cow Appreciation Day event by offering a FREE meal to any customer who visits one of the chain’s mall or stand-alone restaurants fully dressed as a cow.
Customers dressed “head to hoof” in cow attire will be rewarded with a free Chick-fil-A Meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner), which includes an entrée of choice, a side item and a Diet Dr Pepper® (or other beverage choice). For those “too chicken” to wear full cow costumes, Chick-fil-A will award a complimentary entrée to customers partially dressed in cow attire, such as a cow-spotted scarf, purse, hat or other accessory.
Chick-fil-A also has a special website dedicated to the occasion, www.CowAppreciationDay.com, which will launch on June 18. In addition to providing further details about the event, the site offers cow costume ideas, as well as downloadable cow spots, masks and other bovine-themed accessories for customers to use to create their costumes. Chick-fil-A is also organizing a photo contest that will be co-hosted on the Cow Appreciation Day site and the chain’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ChickfilA. The best cow-dressed customers can submit a photo in one of three categories: Best Calf/Calves, Best Cow, and Best Herd. Prizes include Chick-fil-A Cow beach towels, gift cards, and catered parties. Customers can upload photos for the contest from July 13-31.
