If the word of a certain celebrity groundhog isn’t proof enough that Spring 2016 will arrive early, then we can all look to Dairy Queen® for further proof.
On Tuesday, March 15th, the family-friendly dining franchise will declare that Winter has officially ended and that Spring has sprung by celebrating Free Cone Day.
That’s “Free Cone”, as in throughout the day next Tuesday, participating non-mall Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations across the U.S. will serve customers a FREE small vanilla soft-serve cone with the signature curl on top (these are limited to one per customer while supplies last, but free ice cream is free ice cream, right?).
“We want everyone to celebrate our official kick-off of spring by enjoying a signature DQ® cone on us,” said Barry Westrum, executive vice president of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation.
During the magic and majesty that is a day dedicated to slinging free ice cream, the DQ system will accept donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which raises funds to help save and improve the lives of kids treated at 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. Over the last 30 years, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $100 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in local communities.
