LaMar’s Donuts Celebrates National Donut Day With Free Donut
Each visitor to receive a gourmet donut with no purchase required
DENVER, COLORADO May 29, 2011 – On Friday, June 1, National Donut Day, LaMar’s Donuts nationwide will offer one free donut to each guest, with no purchase necessary.
National Donut Day, celebrated the first Friday of every June, dates back to 1917, when women Salvation Army volunteers known as “Lassies” made donuts for soldiers on the front lines of World War I.
“On National Donut Day, we invite everyone to help us salute the Lassies and the military men they served by enjoying a LaMar’s donut on us.” LaMar’s spokesperson Kayde Pierce said. The offer is good for any regular donut available at LaMar’s. (LaMar’s Bars, Bizmarks, fritters and other products made without a center hole are exempted.)
LaMar’s Donuts are made fresh every morning with no artificial preservatives. Every LaMar’s product is produced by hand from start to finish, beginning with kneading of the dough to the glazing.
“We take great care in making each and every donut a gourmet treat,” Pierce said.
LaMar’s Donuts – After developing his original donut recipe as a teenager in 1933, Ray Lamar opened the first LaMar’s Donuts in 1960 in Kansas City, Missouri. Today the franchised chain has 27 stores in six states. LaMar’s has won numerous awards and favorable reviews by such publications as The New Yorker and Gourmet magazine, and was the first donut to be reviewed and acclaimed by Zagat, the world’s most trusted guide to restaurants. LaMar’s Donuts are proclaimed by many as “simply a better donut.”
