McDonald's has some good news for all you caffeine lovers out there: starting tomorrow, September 16, you can pull into any participating location and grab a free small cup of coffee. The offer lasts through the 29th.
The hamburger giant has offered the hot deal before back in March, after Taco Bell introduced their breakfast menu and famously used the name "Ronald McDonald" in their ads, prompting the media to speculate on a feud between the companies. So far, the taco chain has yet to comment on their competitor's promotion, but earlier this year released a statement about the free coffee offer, reportedly saying, “We just launched the next generation of breakfast. It’s not a two-week promotion.”
According to a statement made by Greg Watson, senior vice president of Menu Innovation at McDonald's, the company just wants to give something back to their customers this time around.
"We know our guests are busy, especially during the morning, and a free cup of coffee goes a long way in helping get their days started. That’s why we want to treat customers once again so they can taste for themselves just how great their mornings can be with a cup of McCafé coffee and freshly made breakfast," Watson told I4U.
McDonald's recently announced a collaboration with Kraft Foods Group which will see them selling their McCafe coffee in stores early next year. The company will be following in the footsteps of restaurants like Dunkin' Donuts, who have been selling pre-packaged coffee in grocery stores for some time now.
"We understand there is huge demand for at home options and we've built great success with our McCafé coffee in restaurants. So, it was a natural next step to provide customers with McCafé coffee to enjoy in their own home," Watson said in a statement.
