Krispy Kreme is honoring teachers next week as many head back to school by offering teachers free doughnuts.
From August 10 to 14, Krispy Kreme is saying thanks with “Educator Appreciation Week” by offering one free original glazed doughnut and a regular-sized drip coffee to teachers who show a school employee badge — in stores or at the drive-thru.
Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement, “Education is going to be very different this school year and more challenging and important than ever. From teachers and tutors to parents and coaches, we want to thank everyone who is helping our kids to keep learning in these tough times no matter where the ‘classroom’ is.”
Also, in a special promotion, August 11 will be marked as “Straight A Tuesday” as Krispy Kreme gives away a “Straight A Dozen” doughnuts for free with every pick-up, drive-thru or delivery order.
The “Straight A Tuesday” special hopes to encourage customers to pay it forward to favorite teachers in their lives by giving them doughnuts.
