LEWISTON – National French Fries Day is Wednesday, July 13, and McDonald’s and Wendy’s are celebrating by giving away FREE fries!
According to holidayinsights.com, Americans consume 30 pounds of potatoes per person, per year. 25% of those potatoes are made into French fries. So, naturally fast food legends have to celebrate this beloved holiday.
McDonald’s is starting off by giving their famous salty fries away for free, with no purchase necessary on Wednesday. Users just need to order the fries through the McDonald’s app and they are good to go.
Also, as part of their “Camp McDonald’s” campaign. They have deals each day in the app for the entire month. On Wednesday, July 13 users can get a FREE McFlury to go with their fries with a $1 minimum purchase. (PSSST. all large drinks are $1).
Wendy’s is taking it a step further and turning National French Fry Day into “Fry Week,” making it Fry-day every day, with five consecutive days of hot digital deals that can be accessed through their app. Wendy’s stated their Hot & Crispy Fries are so good, that they can’t be contained into a single day of celebration.
