NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, September 29th, McDonald's will help celebrate National Coffee Day by rewarding users of their App with a free* small hot or iced McCafé coffee redeemable at participating restaurants in the New York Tri-State area**. Customers do not need to make any purchases to receive their free coffee. With coffee being a top beverage choice, McDonald's will highlight National Day by sharing coffee with customers. Customers can expect to get their complementary beverage when presenting the mobile offer from the McDonald's app. Limit one per guest.
The promotion commemorates National Coffee Day in honor of the nation's most beloved morning beverage also commonly enjoyed any time of the day. McCafé was first offered in the USA 15 years ago and since then it has remained a popular beverage at McDonald's. The journey to serve the perfect cup of coffee actually began 25 years ago, when the brand traveled the globe in search of exactly the right combination of coffee beans. They found it in the rich coffee-bearing soils of Central and South America, and McDonald's Premium Roast Blend was born.
"At McDonald's, we're committed to offering our customers with great-tasting coffee and espresso brewed from high quality coffee beans," said Josh Kaufman, a McDonald's franchisee in Long Island. "Along with taste, we know our customers care about where our coffee comes from and how it is sourced. For that reason it's equally important for us and with great pride we can say that 37% of our global coffee purchases in 2015 were verified sustainable."
Guests can obtain the free small hot or iced McCafé coffee promotion by downloading the McDonalds Mobile App directly onto their smartphones or by visiting www.mcdonaldsnytristate.com. There are no charges to download the McDonald's App. Last year, McDonald's launched the App in the U.S. as a way to give customers a more personalized experience. The App features weekly offers, a McCafé loyalty program, and nutrition features allowing customers to save money and learn more about the food that they're consuming. They also have access to our fun McDonald's sticker keyboard (available in IOS 10+), so they can use McDonald's images in text and typing. McDonald's App is free for download from iTunes or Google Play.
