As part of its celebration of National Donut Day in June, Entenmann’s (a division of Bimbo Bakeries USA) has announced that it is accepting entries for a contest that will name one lucky fan as the bakery’s Chief Donut Officer.
From now until June 30, donut fans can enter this contest at its website for the opportunity to win the honorary title and prizes such as $5,000 and a year's supply of donuts. An online entry form will ask fans to share their love for Entenmann's donuts and their ideas for product innovation. These entries will be judged on creativity, passion, and originality.
At that point, five finalists will be selected and invited to submit video testimonials about why they deserve to be named Chief Donut Officer. Fans can vote for their favorite submission and the top vote-getter/grand prize winner will be announced on August 7. Each runner-up will receive $1,000 and free donuts for a year.
“Since its start 120 years ago, Entenmann's has remained committed to celebrating its incredibly loyal fans and providing them with the quality baked goods that they've grown to know and love,” says Jason Amar, Director of Marketing at Entenmann's. “Our iconic, one-of-a-kind donuts have been a cornerstone for the brand for decades and have gained an extremely passionate following over the years. Timed to our favorite holiday of the year – National Donut Day – we want to honor our biggest fans by officially welcoming one to our Entenmann's family.”
