Krystal® Celebrates 84 Years With Free Birthday “Car-Go” For Guests And Fans

October 07, 2016 // // ATLANTA, GA – It is Krystal’s® 84th birthday, but it’s giving all the presents away to its guests this year with big-time values, free food and a chance to win a free car. This year’s Birthday Celebration offers everything from free coupons on Krystals and multi-packs of 24 Krystals to a grand prize giveaway of a Kia Soul – a stylish square-shaped ride.

“We’ve been all about small burgers for 84 years, but we’re always thinking big,” said Jason Abelkop, Chief Marketing Officer for The Krystal Company. “Since our first restaurant opened all those years ago, our unique square shape and fun spirit have kept people coming back to Krystal. We’re celebrating this year with a ‘hot, square ride’ – and we’re inviting everyone to join in.”

To win the grand prize, guests will need to visit their favorite local Krystal restaurant location on Wednesday, October 12 to receive a secret SMS code word* that can earn each person an entry in the Birthday Car prize drawing. One lucky fan will win their own Kia Soul. Giveaways don’t stop there. Radio stations throughout the Southeast will be giving away prize packs and bloggers will be raffling off giveaways to delight guests! Additionally, on October 12 all classic original Krystals will be 50 cents, because nothing says “Happy Birthday, Krystal” like a special deal on everyone’s favorite square sandwich.

“We want to thank our customers for supporting us for 84 years,” Abelkop added. “We want everyone to share in the celebration and look forward to another 84 years!”
