Published in CSP Daily News

CARY, N.C. -- Kangaroo Express, operated by The Pantry Inc., said it will celebrate "National Donut Day" on Friday, June 7, by offering a free doughnut for every guest at its more than 300 bakery-ready Kangaroo Express convenience stores throughout the Southeast.

Guests can stop by any participating Kangaroo Express between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. on June 7 to enjoy a complimentary donut. (One per customer, while supplies last.)

National Donut Day celebrates The Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, clothing-mending and home-cooked meals, including doughnuts, for soldiers during World War I.

"With more than half of our stores located within 25 miles of a military installation, many of our guests have that same All-American helping spirit as the original Salvation Army volunteers during that first National Donut Day in 1938. That's why National Donut Day is the perfect time to show our appreciation for our guests with great donut deals all week long," said Joe Venezia, senior vice president of operations for Kangaroo Express. "We hope our guests join The Roo to celebrate National Donut Day, grab a fresh cup of Bean Street Coffee and continue to choose Kangaroo Express for fresh, great tasting breakfast options."

In advance of National Donut Day, Kangaroo Express is keeping the donut deals going all week long. From Monday, June 3 through Friday, June 7, guests can take advantage of the following offers: six doughnuts for $4.49; two doughnuts for $1.79; doughnut holes for 99 cents; and $2 breakfast combo, including the option of a 20 oz. Bean Street Coffee or orange juice paired with either a donut or Jimmy Dean sausage on a biscuit.

As of May 7, 2013, The Pantry--a leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States--operated 1,567 convenience stores in 13 states under select banners, including its primary operating banner, Kangaroo Express. The Pantry is based in Cary, N.C.
