Ready to “dunk out”? National Donut Day is near…

 CANTON, MA – Coming soon – June 7th – is a “day for donuts” – National Donut Day 2019 and Dunkin’ Donuts is urging Americans to “dunk out” with a donut and some “me” time during the day.
The company will offer an invitation on Facebook to let fans know they can have a free classic donut that day with the purchase of any beverage. Enjoy the classic favorites including Boston Kreme, Glazed, Glazed Chocolate, Strawberry Frosted with Sprinkles and more, the chain urges customers.

US Chief Marketing Officer Tony Weisman notes that donuts are “part of the American story and hold a special place in our popular culture” and urges customers to drop by and “recharge and enjoy their favorite donut variety.”

The upcoming event led Dunkin’ to conduct a survey asking people what daypart they prefer for a donut break, who they’d pick to share it with, and whether they prefer to eat donuts whole or split them.

National Donut Day began in 1938 when the Chicago Salvation army honored women who serve donuts to soldiers in World War I. It’s traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of June.
For nearly 70 years, Dunkin’ Donuts has served signature donuts. Visit or visit the Dunkin’ blog at
