Moe's, Wawa, other UCF-area restaurants offer freebies
Nothing excites college students more than getting free stuff — especially if it's food.
Moe's Southwestern Grill will have a cheesy deal, offering a free cup of queso and chips at participating locations on Thursday for "Free Queso Day." Then, wash it down with free coffee from McDonald's.
For two weeks, during breakfast hours, McDonald's will offer free small iced or hot McCafé coffee, at participating locations. This will be the second year of this promotion being offered.
Wawa will have a similar offer when it celebrates the grand opening of its 50th Florida store, located on 4100 E. Colonial Drive, on Thursday. To ring in the opening, Wawa will be giving away free coffee throughout the day at all of its Florida locations.
"We could not be more excited to celebrate this incredible milestone in our newest Wawaland," said Chris Gheysens, Wawa's President and CEO, in a release.
Since July 2012, Wawa has opened 31 stores in Orlando and 19 in Tampa, and plans to open nine more by the end of this year.
After all that coffee, you'll be in serious need of some doughnuts. So get your eye patch and peg leg ready to celebrate "Talk Like a Pirate Day" at Krispy Kreme on Friday, and you'll score treasure in the form of a free Original Glazed doughnut. Dress in a full pirate costume and receive a dozen for free.
