Enjoy Chick-fil-A Til The Cows Come Home!

Posted by    |    July 8th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Today might not seem like a significant day, but in fact it’s Cow Appreciation Day. As you know, my family is a fan of Chick-fil-A and on “Cow Appreciation Day,” they give away free ENTREES & COMBO MEALS depending how much you come in dressed like a cow.You can print out their cow costume kit here if you need help or create our own “costumes.”

With the help of its “Eat Mor Chikin” cows campaign, Chick-fil-A was recognized in 2010 as one of the top “Marketers of the Year” by Advertising Age, and as one of J.D. Power and Associates’ “Top Restaurant Brands in Customer Satisfaction.”

In preparation for this day, I sat down with Chick-fil-A’s President & Chief Operating Operator Dan T. Cathy, who was in Dallas to celebrate the advertising campaign at the headquarters of its creator, The Richards Group. (more…)

Paul’s Caramel and Hannah’s Caramel are amazing! You also need to try these flavor combos: The Chick Flick (Cookies & Cream, Rocky Road and S’mores) and The Chili’s (Chili Cheese and Loaded Baked Potato).
