Chick-fil-A celebrates Cow Appreciation Day with free food


Is there anything better than dumping your Chick-fil-A into their famous sauce? How about receiving that meal for free? Get your cow costumes ready – Chick-fil-A is celebrating its 15th annual Cow Appreciation Day today! 

Chick-fil-A is celebrating their favorite bovines the best way they know how: free chicken. Any customer who visits a local restaurant dressed as a cow will receive a free entrée (excluding salads).

Adult customers who dress up in any type of cow attire will be rewarded with a free Chick-fil-A entrée – options include the Original Chicken Sandwich or Grilled Nuggets during lunch and dinner hours. Children can receive a free Kid’s Meal during lunch and dinner hours for dressing in a cow costume as well.

The Cow Appreciation Day celebration will last from restaurant opening through 7 p.m. local time. To prepare for the day, customers can visit their website for a full list of redeemable menu items and cow costume inspiration.

Fans also can share pictures of their costumes on social media by using the hashtag #CowAppreciationDay. Chick-fil-A began celebrating Cow Appreciation Day in 2005 and participation has grown each year as the company has expanded across the country. Last year, more than 1.95 million cow-dressed customers joined the celebration.

“We are excited to celebrate the 15th annual Cow Appreciation Day in our restaurants across the country,” said Jon Bridges, Chick-fil-A’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “We are grateful for our customers’ enthusiasm toward this fun annual tradition.”

Even our furry friends are getting dressed up for the occasion. 

This year’s Cow Appreciation Day marks the 24th anniversary of Chick-fil-A’s award-winning marketing campaign featuring the “Eat Mor Chikin” Cows. In addition to the clever roadside billboards that made them famous, the boisterous bovines have shared more than 9.9 million free entrées with Chick-fil-A guests who have helped celebrate them throughout the years.
