National Doughnut Day - Free Dounts!

National Donut Day is on the first Friday of June each year. The holiday celebrates the doughnut (a.k.a "donut") — an edible, ring-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened. Many American doughnut stores offer free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day. In 2009, both independent doughnut shops and large national franchises offered free doughnuts in the United States.

National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fund raiser for the Chicago Salvation Army. Their goal was to help the needy during the Great Depression, and to honor the Salvation Army "Lassies" of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers behind the front lines in France.


In honor of National Doughnut Day, participating Krispy Kremes are offering one free doughnut per customer, no purchase necessary.

Participating Dunkin' Donuts will give every customer a free doughnut of their choice, with the purchase of any beverage, limit one per customer.
