July 5, 2018 (San Diego’s East County) – Have you “herd?” It’s time to break out your cowbells and get your spots on.

The 14 Chick-fil-A restaurants in San Diego County, including the two in East County will give away free Chick-fil-A food to any customer dressed in cow attire from store opening to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10.

Chick-fil-A restaurants in East County are located at 8200 Fletcher Parkway, La Mesa, and 9418 Mission Gorge Road, Santee.

The promotion is part of the nationwide restaurant chain’s largest, single-day customer appreciation event called “Cow Appreciation Day,” which celebrates the company’s iconic “Eat Mor Chiklin” cows. Customers are invited to dress like their favorite bovines, eat free food and celebrate the cows.

Adult customers wearing something cow-like, whether it’s a “head-to-hoof” costume or a simple cow-spotted accessory, will be rewarded with a free Chick-fil-A entrée, such as an Original Chicken Sandwich, Grilled Nuggets or breakfast favorite, the Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit (“don’t be too chicken to dress like a cow”). Children wearing any sort of cow apparel will receive a free Kid’s Meal. Based on previous Cow Appreciation Days, more than 1.8 million free entrees will be given away this year to cow-dressed customers at 2,200 Chick-fil-A restaurants in 47 states.

This year marks the 14th annual Cow Appreciation Day, and it’s the 23rd anniversary of the Chick-fil-A award-winning marketing campaign. The “Eat Mor Chicklin” cows have appeared in roadside billboards, point-of-purchase materials, promotions and advertising. The “Eat Mor Chikin” campaign has reached millions on television, radio, the Internet, plus the occasional water tower, to become one of America's most popular advertising icons and a member of New York’s Madison Avenue Advertising Walk of Fame.
