New York, NY (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
A recent study found that 75% of coffee drinkers enjoy a cup of coffee as part of their daily routine. To mark National Coffee Day with a fresh brewed “thank-you” to customers, 7-Eleven® stores in the U.S. will give away a free medium-size cup of hot coffee, cappuccino or latte while supplies last on Thursday, September 29th, 2011 between 7-11am.
The celebration kicked off a day early with an interactive game held on 7-Eleven’s Facebook page which allowed fans to dip a “drip” (aka, obnoxious person) into a giant 7-Eleven coffee cup setup live at Union Station in Washington D.C. on Sept, 28th.
