April 06, 2016 // Franchising.com // MORRISTOWN, NJ - Every year, Certified Public Accountants go “bananas” trying to get Americans’ taxes done on time, but rarely get the credit for those long days and big returns. Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt® knows how hard these underappreciated folks work during tax season, so this year, the brand wants to help accountants be “audit” they can be! On April 17th and 18th, 2016, the day prior to and of the looming Tax Day deadline, Bananas will offer “The CPA” on its menu, an energizing and delicious frostie, featuring fresh strawberries and bananas, with added Red Bull Yellow Edition®, to help power through all the paperwork. To top it off, ALL Certified Public Accountants will receive The CPA on the house when they present a valid CPA license at participating Bananas locations on April 17 and 18, 2016.*
“Everyone needs accountants, especially when the clock is ticking down to the infamous Tax Day deadline of April 18th, but their hard work often goes unnoticed,” said Leslie Chinea, Director of Marketing for Bananas and Villa Restaurant Group. “The creation of The CPA is a fun way for us to say thanks for all of those late nights trying to help us get those big returns!”
The CPA, made with fresh strawberries, bananas and ice, with added Red Bull Yellow Edition, will be available, while supplies last, on April 17 and 18, 2016.
