March is about to be your new favorite month. IHOP is celebrating their 10th annual National Pancake Day with a free short stack of pancakes, available on March 3, to mark a “Decade of Giving.” As usual, contributions given on that day will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Donations are expected to reach $3.5 million this year.
A couple of weeks later, on March 16, don’t forget to pick up a free small soft-serve vanilla ice cream cone at Dairy Queen in celebration of the brand’s 75th anniversary. This offer marks the kickoff of several deals and specials happening all year long in celebration of three-quarters of a century.
“This is all about connecting with our fans and not just about telling them, but showing them how much we appreciate their loyalty. After all, our fans have been supporting us for 75 years, so we thought it would be fun to bring the celebration to them,” Barry Westrum, executive vice president of marketing for Dairy Queen, said in a statement. “We think this is a great day for our fans and our system. We can’t wait.”
