From the ring of doorbell to a knock at the door, delivery drivers have changed the conversation on convenience. As people stepped away from the check out line in stores and turned to pushing a button to purchase, hard working men and women have brought that food, beverages, household staples and more directly to the door. Now, TGI Fridays is serving a big thank goodness to delivery drivers with a free food promotion.

On February 10, 2022, TGI Fridays will be offering delivery drivers a free appetizer. From FedEx drivers to UPS to mail couriers to even food delivery drivers, anyone to brings a package to others’ doors is eligible to receive this promotion.

According to Sara Bittorf, Chief Experience Officer at TGI Fridays, this special free food offer is meant to celebrate delivery drivers’ efforts. This token of thanks and gratitude is meant to brighten the day for this these hardworking people. As Bittorf said, “Despite the pandemic and staffing shortages, they load up and drive, fly and deliver all the stuff the rest of the world is constantly tracking because they know everyone is depending on them.”

From the mom who has looked for her child’s favorite cereal to the restaurant that had to 86’d the sweet potato fries, the supply chain struggles are a daily occurrence. But, delivery drivers keep the wheels rolling. Whether it is helping stock store shelves or bringing that forgotten gallon of milk, those drivers can be the lifeline that many people rely on.

On February 10, at participating locations, delivery drivers can receive one of the following appetizers for free:

  • Green Bean Fries
  • Loaded Potato Skins
  • Philly Cheesesteak Eggrolls
  • Warm Pretzels
  • Chips & Salsa
  • Pan-Seared Potstickers
  • Spinach & Artichoke Dip

To receive the offer, guests should mention to the server “I work in the delivery business.” Then, they either show work credentials or come in a delivery uniform and that appetizer will be free.

Sometimes the little gestures do make a difference. A thank you might not make the day go more quickly, but it can bring a pep in your step.
