National Doughnut Day 2017: Where to snag free treats

Dunkin' Donuts, Krispy Kreme, Tim Hortons all participating


Are you ready for National Doughnut Day?

The “holiday” is set for Friday, and we bet you’re wondering where you can snag a free or discounted doughnut. (Right?)

Well, it depends on where in the country you live, as not all these chains have locations everywhere, but it’s worth looking up and seeing where your closest free-doughnut options are. Also, if you have a favorite local store, look it up on social media: it appears many mom-and-pop shops and smaller businesses are running deals and promotions of their own.

For now, let’s talk about the big players and what they’re offering Friday:

Dunkin’ Donuts

Do I have one near me? Let's check.

National Doughnut Day was established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I, USA Today said. The holiday is traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of June.
