Penn Station East Coast Subs was looking for an idea to help folks ring in the new year, or perhaps to recover from the end of the last one.
The fast-casual sub sandwich chain with multiple locations in the Miami Valley settled on a “Happy New Year from our president” promotion of free fries.
Penn Station is offering a free small order of fries with the purchase of any sandwich from Jan. 8-14 at all of its restaurants.
Those same fries just captured second place in the “Best Fries” category in the Dayton.com Best of 2018.
“We want to thank and reward our customers in the New Year,” Craig Dunaway, president of Penn Station, said in a release. “After a busy holiday season, this will be a nice treat for our customers at the beginning of 2019. Our fries are one of our most popular menu items, so it’s the perfect item to delight customers.”
Founded in Cincinnati in 1985, Penn Station now operates more than 300 locations in Ohio and 14 other states, including a Xenia restaurant that opened last March.
