Washington, D.C.-Area Chick-fil-A Restaurants to Host
Free Coffee Giveaway Sept. 29 to Oct. 4
Monday, Sept. 29 is International Coffee Day, and to celebrate, Washington, D.C. area Chick-fil-A restaurants will kick off a week-long giveaway of their new specialty-grade THRIVE Farmers Coffee. Not only is Chick-fil-A’s new coffee brewed to pair specifically with its menu items, but all sales have a global impact. THRIVE’s unique farmer-direct model enables farmers in Central America to earn up to 10 times more than farmers through traditional fair trade models.
Beginning Monday, Sept. 29 through Saturday, Oct. 4, customers who visit a local Chick-fil-A restaurant will receive a free small hot coffee or medium iced coffee.
The Atlanta-based restaurant chain’s new coffee qualifies as specialty grade per the standards of the Specialty Coffee Association of America. THRIVE Farmers’ blend is also unique to Chick-fil-A as it has been crafted with characteristics and flavors that complement the chain’s breakfast menu, as well as allow it to stand alone as a premium cup of coffee throughout the day.
Chick-fil-A’s new iced coffee, which is available in original and vanilla, is handcrafted daily and prepared with an exclusive blend of THRIVE Farmers’ cold-brewed, specialty coffee beans and fresh two percent milk, sweetened with pure cane syrup and served over ice.
“We are thrilled to serve our customers our new blend of THRIVE Farmers Coffee that was created specifically for Chick-fil-A,” said Rob Herold, franchise Operator of Chick-fil-A at Westfield Montgomery Mall, “This is a great opportunity to not only give back to the community that supports us, but to positively impact the lives of the coffee farmers in Central America.”
The sale of each cup of coffee provides direct revenue to THRIVE Farmers network of family farmers in Central America, allowing them to earn up to 10 times more than farmers earn in traditional revenue models, empowering them to reinvest in their communities and crops.
No purchase necessary. Offer is limited to one free coffee beverage per customer.
