Local McDonald’s restaurants will be kicking off the new year by offering a free small cup of coffee to its customers in the Greater Sacramento, Stockton, and Modesto area. Beginning Monday, January 2, all local McDonald’s restaurants throughout Northern California will be offering a free small Premium Roast Coffee made with 100 percent fire-roasted Arabaca Beans to all customers during business hours with no purchase necessary. This program is local McDonald’s way of saying thank you to their customers and offering a helping hand at the start of the new year.What I found interesting is they're not offering these deal in any of the Bay Area counties that have been on a jihad against McDonald's Happy Meals. Eat it, Bay Area (and pay for it yourself).
“In this challenging economic climate, we know that many are struggling to make ends meet and this is our way of lending support during these difficult times,” said Steven Ramirez, a local McDonald’s restaurant owner from Elk Grove. “As the holiday season comes to a close and budgets become tight, we hope this program will offer some comfort to our community and also warm them up a little during this cold, winter season.”
The free coffee program will last two weeks, beginning Monday, January 2 and ending on Sunday, January 15.
