Chick-Fil-A at It Again

Well, Chick-Fil-A is at it again. With all the trouble in the country today, we should have known that the restaurant chain would once again get in the middle of it. So sure enough, The Company has decided to once again declared Tuesday, July 12 as Cow Appreciation Day.

To honor the sacred bovine, America’s most beloved chicken chain wants you to forgo the usual lunchtime burger and grab some free chicken instead. Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country are offering free entrees—including their grilled chicken wraps, Chick-fil-A biscuits, nuggets and even their popular original crispy chicken sandwich—to any customer dressed as cow.


And the good news is you don’t have to be dressed “head to hoof”—Chick-fil-A will dole out free food to any customer partially dressed in cow attire, using accessories like a cow-spotted hat, scarf or even someone donning a tail and mask. A company spokesman said that children can receive a full Kid’s Meal—including fries and a drink– for dressing in a cow costume.

“Cow Appreciation Day is the one day where it’s okay to dress ‘udderly’ crazy and get rewarded for it,” said Jon Bridges, Chick-fil-A’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer.

Still not sure of what to wear, well here are some spotted looks from last year’s event.

This is the 12th anniversary of the chain’s annual celebration of the utterly unusual way to give-a-way free food to their customers. Chick-fil-A restaurants will have a Snapchat filter that will allow customers to share their #CowAppreciationDay experiences with friends and family.

But hurry, the event will last only until 7:00 p.m. local time.

Please share this with all your friends.
