Holidays and food often go hand in hand. Sometimes, people prefer for that celebration to fall on a particular day of the week. Who hasn’t heard parents complain about Halloween on a Wednesday or the push to move the Super Bowl to a Saturday? Checkers and Rally’s thinks that National Fry Day needs to be celebrated on a particular day of the week. Are you willing to get behind this food movement?

National Fry Day is celebrated on July 13. While there is a celebration on the calendar, the day of the week varies from year to year. Other food holidays are celebrated on a particular “day of the week,” such National Donut Day, which is the first Friday in June.

Checkers and Rally’s are petitioning to make National Fry Day fall always on a Friday. For the brand, they feel that the fry-yeah feeling is more robust when falling on a Friday.

According to Frances Allen, President & CEO of Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc., “The last time National Fry Day fell on a Friday was exactly 15 years ago, which I find to be a total fry fail. Not having the beloved holiday fall on Fridays just doesn’t make sense. I hereby call on all fry fans to sign our petition and help us right this wrong, now and forever.”

As seen recently, more and more people are willing to raise their voice regarding food. Whether it is bringing back a popular menu item or requesting that a flavor not change, people are passionate about food, and brands are listening.

Now, Checkers and Rally’s is hoping that fry lovers are willing to heat up a change to National Fry Day. Given that the brand has been recognized as the number one Most Craveable Fries in America, it is hoping that the loyal fry fans will join the Fry-Day movement.

Anyone who signs the Fry Day to Friday petition will get a digital coupon for free fries. The free medium Famous Seasoned Fries offer is available through July 15, 2022. No additional purchase is necessary.

Don’t dip to food pressure. Join the Fry Day to Friday movement today.
