Each July, since 2005, Chick-fil-A dedicates a day to show appreciation for customers. Each customer that dresses up like the Chick-fil-A cow mascot receives free food.

“We made this decision with the communities we serve in mind, keeping safe service as our highest priority at this time” said the Chick-fil-A website. “Until we can gather again in person and celebrate our Cows, we have created a few fun ways to keep the spirit of Cow Appreciation Day alive this summer.”

The company has not announced when Cow Appreciation Day will take place, but updates on the event will be provided on the Cow Appreciation Day website.

Most Chick-fil-A’s have made the decision to keep dining rooms closed during the pandemic, but drive-thrus remain open Monday – Saturday. The Company is following thorough safety precautions including face masks and employee handwashing stations.
