‘Mzansi, will you be free for breakfast on 9 March? We’re giving away 217 000 Egg McMuffins for #McDBreakfastDay’ comes the tweet from the official McDonald’s SA Twitter account.
National Breakfast Day was started by McDonald’s in 2013 to encourage the country to eat a good, hearty breakfast every morning.
“It’s a well-known fact that a good breakfast is one of the key foundations for a productive life,” says McDonald’s senior marketing director, Daniel Padiachy.
“It improves our mental and physical capabilities, as well as our mood and overall sense of well-being.”
“At McDonald’s, we feel that if breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why shouldn’t we pay homage to this delicious morning meal?”
“National Breakfast Day is a celebration of the goodness of breakfast and a reminder to all South Africans about the importance of breakfast to power up their days.”
The popular worldwide franchise will give away free Egg McMuffins to the first 1 000 people at each of their restaurants across the globe, including the 217 restaurants in South Africa.
So, will you be queuing up next Monday for your free Egg McMuffin?
