I really chuckled at the latest Critters and Crayons blog post!
This Friday is Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A (a 7 year tradition!), which means:
Customers dressed “head to hoof” in cow attire will be rewarded with a free Chick-fil-A Meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner), which includes an entrée of choice, a side item and a Dr Pepper® (or other beverage choice). For those “too chicken” to wear full cow costumes, Chick-fil-A will award a complimentary entrée to customers partially dressed in cow attire, such as a cow-spotted scarf, purse, hat or other accessory.
Chick-fil-A also has launched a special website dedicated to the occasion, http://www.CowAppreciationDay.com, which will launch on June 17. In addition to providing further details about the event, the site offers cow costume ideas, as well as downloadable cow spots, masks and other bovine-themed accessories for customers to use to create their costumes. Chick-fil-A is also organizing a photo contest that will be co-hosted on the Cow Appreciation Day site and the chain’s Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/ChickfilA. Chick-fil-A will offer a number of categories where the best cow-dressed customers will have the chance to win various prizes. Customers can upload photos for the contest from July 8 – 31.
Chick-fil-A is known for its kooky and fun marketing. You may recall that every time a new Chick-fil-A opens up, people camp out to be in the first 100 customers. They get a free combo once a week for a year if they make the cut. Remember this scene at the new Chick-fil-A on the northside.
But back to Tricia. Her kids’ pictures as they tried on their homemade cow outfits were too cute! Here is one, hope you check out this post of hers – too funny:
