Dairy Queen has announced the cancellation of the Free Cone Day for this year as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.
This may come as a bad news for people who have been looking forward to enjoying free cone as it the custom of Dairy Queen to give free cone to its fans at the beginning of spring. But the chain tried to let its fan understand that the step was taken in order to protect the fans and their crew members.
In a memo titled “An Update on Free Cone Day 2021”, the chain wrote:
“As spring approaches, we all look forward fo Free Cone day, an event that attracts long lines at our restaurants. Given the state of COVID-19, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event with your safety and the safety of our crew members in mind”.
Hopefully, the chain will bring back Free Cone Day in 2022.
