Could there be a sweeter day of the year? On Friday, June 3rd, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. celebrates National Doughnut Day by offering customers a free doughnut of their choice in participating stores throughout the U.S.
National Doughnut Day was established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to raise much-needed funds during the Great Depression and to honor the work of World War I Salvation Army volunteers who prepared doughnuts for thousands of soldiers. National Doughnut Day is celebrated annually on the first Friday in June.
"National Doughnut Day is a perfect time for us to give a little something back to our loyal customers throughout the country," said Stan Parker, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Krispy Kreme.
