Stan’s Donuts in Chicago is looking to turn National Donut Day into an entire weekend of fun with free donuts, deals on assortments and more.
From Friday, June 5 through Sunday, June 7, the iconic Chicago donut shop will be offering guests a free glazed cake donut with any purchase. The extended holiday means more free donuts for guests while simultaneously allowing Stan’s to ensure everyone can safely practice social distancing.
Stan’s will also be offering specially-priced assortments including a $10 half dozen of glazed donuts, a $20 dozen of Stan’s classics including chocolate cake and strawberry glazed donuts and a $30 Doughboy’s Best Assortment of 12 of Stan’s most beloved flavors including the Nutella pocket and lemon pistachio old fashioned.
Additionally, Stan’s will also be celebrating National Donut Day with the launch of the Stan’s Dough-Gooders program, which gives Chicago organizations making a difference in their community a Stan’s Van delivery of over 624 donuts. To pick its first ever Dough-Gooder, Stan’s will be holding a social media contest to get nominations from Stan’s Fans.
Beginning Tuesday, May 26, Stan’s followers are able to nominate a person or organization to be chosen for a Stan’s Van visit by tagging them in the comments on Stan’s social media and sharing why they should be recognized. The first Dough-Gooder will be selected at the beginning of Stan’s Donut Weekend on Friday, June 5 for donuts to be delivered at a later date.
“We have always loved National Donut Day at Stan’s because it lets us celebrate our guests, but this year we’re excited to use the holiday to recognize the heroes in our community at a moment when so many people have demonstrated incredible strength and courage.” says Rich Labriola, owner and head baker of Stan’s Donuts. “We want National Donut Day to be all about our Stan’s Fans and our gratitude for their support, so from free donuts to the Dough-Gooders program, we’ve put together a celebration that lets us say ‘thank you’ for allowing us to continue doing what we love – making really great donuts!”
