National French Fry Day was celebrated by McDonald’s on July 13, gifting free McDonald’s World Famous Fries.
In order to receive free fries, customers had to download the app to receive the exclusive offer.
"For the last couple of years, McDonald’s has been celebrating National Fry Day with free fries through the app. The app launched in 2017," said Macey Reed, communications coordinator for North Texas.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, 99% of the McDonald’s restaurants have been open for drive-thru, carry-out and delivery, serving communities across the country with enhanced safety precautions.
Additionally, for every pound of fries purchased, McDonald’s restaurants in North Texas donates two cents to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Dallas. This is the "Pennies Per Pound" initiative that helps provide thousands of dollars for families in need.
