National French Fry Day falls on a Wednesday this year, and Checkers & Rally’s believes Fry Day should be on a, well, Friday. The brands are asking fry fans to help get the day, designated by the National Day Calendar, to move to a Friday. They’re calling on Marlo Anderson, the founder of the National Day Calendar, to make the change, according to a press release.
Anyone who signs the brands’ petition will receive a digital coupon for a free medium order of Checkers & Rally’s seasoned fries redeemable through July 15, 2022.
“The last time National Fry Day fell on a Friday was exactly 15 years ago, which I find to be a total fry fail,” Frances Allen, president & CEO of Checkers Drive-In Restaurants Inc., said in the press release. “Not having the beloved holiday fall on Fridays just doesn’t make sense. I hereby call on all fry fans to sign our petition and help us right this wrong, now and forever. Plus, when you sign the petition, you get free medium fries on us — it’s a win-win. To Mr. Anderson, I say ‘move National Fry Day to a Friday!’ America’s eyes (and fries) are on you.”
Checkers & Rally’s operates 850 restaurants.
