Seems like the rate of vaccination against COVID-19 is too slow for Krispy Kreme. The company is giving a sweet free treat to all people who’ve received their COVID-19 vaccine jab. The incentive is aimed at increasing the rate of vaccination in the country and will last all year long. The sweet deal kicks off this coming Monday and is expected to run through to December 31, 2021.
Throughout the time, people are set to enjoy free Glazed doughnuts, “anytime, any day, even every day,” as long as they provide their vaccination cards. This, according to NBC4i, is an absolutely free deal, exclusive of payments.
The company’s chief marketing officer, Dave Skena, said the new move is aimed at encouraging more people to receive the vaccine in order to make the country a safer place to live in.
“We all want to get COVID-19 behind us as fast as possible and we want to support everyone doing their part to make the country safe by getting vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available to them,” said Skena in a statement.
Well, concerns may have been arising already about why the sweet deal is set to take so long. Others may have thought that the deal is too sweet to survive the whole year.
Well, the company is mindful of the special groups that are yet to be eligible for vaccination. The incentive is, therefore, long-tenured because they don’t want these groups to miss out on their offers. Impressive enough, the deal is available at any of the company’s shops throughout the country.
The company also plans to deliver free doughnuts to vaccination centers in support of the officials and volunteers who administer the jab.
This comes just after the company announced a free coffee premium and an Original Glazed doughnut to anyone who visits their shops every Monday from March 29 through May 24, this year.
To its team members, Krispy Kreme is “offering up to four hours of paid time off each to help encourage and enable their COVID-19 vaccinations, furthering the safety of team members and guests,” according to the company’s website.
