From Sept. 16 through 29, the restaurant chain with the big golden arch is offering guests a free small McCafé coffee during breakfast hours. This event, which is only at participating McDonald’s, builds on the restaurant’s first-ever Free Coffee Event launched in March, when the company gave away millions of cups of free coffee during the two-week period.
To celebrate two additional weeks of free coffee, McDonald’s is calling on people across the nation to “sip and tell” their embarrassing pre-coffee moments on social media with @McCafe using the hashtag #SipandTell. Select social media fans with morning mishap stories like missing the last train to work on Monday or leaving the house with mismatched shoes will be surprised by @McCafe with custom gifts and experiences to help start their morning off right.
For those hardcore coffee lovers who could drink cups of joe all day, McDonald’s has collaborated with Kraft Foods Group, Inc. to offer a variety of McCafé ground, whole bean and single cup coffees in grocery stores and other retailers nationwide starting in early 2015.
