ATLANTA, Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In 1932, on a downtown street corner in Chattanooga, Tennessee, one of the South's most famous food icons was born – the small, square, steamy Krystal burger. In celebration of that day 85 years ago, Krystal Restaurants will be hosting a seven-week-long birthday blowout sweepstakes with a $1 Million grand prize for the winner. In partnership with Coca-Cola® Zero Sugar, the Krystal 85th Birthday Giveaway not only includes a chance at $1 million for one lucky winner, but also hundreds of other delicious free Krystal menu items and other unique branded merchandise and collectibles.

Alba Castillo Adamo, Vice President of Customer Marketing for The Coca-Cola Company, agrees. "We are honored to have been part of the Krystal experience for 85 years – since the very beginning. This sweepstakes is our way of thanking the brand and the guests who have made it all possible."
Guests wishing to take part in the sweepstakes need only visit one of Krystal's participating locations between September 25 and November 12 and order a Coke Zero Sugar-branded cup as part of their purchase, while supplies last.
