Get free Chick-fil-A July 12 for ‘Cow Appreciation’


It’s time to break out the cowbells and get your spots on because Chick-fil-A is issuing a cattle call.

The nine Chick-fil-A restaurants in San Diego County, including the Chick-fil-A restaurants at 194 North El Camino Real in Encinitas and at Quarry Creek, 3475 Marron Road in Oceanside, are preparing to give away free food to as many as 10,000 customers on Tuesday, July 12, as part of the chain’s nationwide promotion called “Cow Appreciation Day.”

On that day, Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide will offer a free entrée to any customer who visits a restaurant dressed as a cow.

Adult customers who dress in any type of cow attire, whether it’s head-to-hoof or sporting a cow-spotted accessory such as cow-pattern hat, scarf, tie or purse, will be rewarded with a free entrée of their choice, such as an Original Chicken Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap or Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit.

Children can receive a free Kid’s Meal for dressing in a cow costume.

The Cow Appreciation Day celebration will be held from store opening through 7 p.m. Breakfast is served until 10:30 a.m. Limit of one free entrée per customer per day.
