June 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - In honor of National Iced Tea Month, McAlister’s Deli® will offer tea lovers more reasons to celebrate their favorite thirst quencher, including the ninth annual Free Tea Day on Thursday, June 29.
To kick off National Iced Tea Month, McAlister’s is launching its collectable reusable tea tumblers. For the first time, tumblers will be 32 ounces to match in-restaurant tea glasses – perfectly sized to quench any tea craving. Tumblers are available at participating McAlister’s restaurants for $9.99, with 99-cent refills for the life of the cup. On National Iced Tea Day, June 10, the first 20 guests at each restaurant will take home a complimentary tumbler.
On Thursday, June 29, all Free Tea Day long, participating McAlister’s will give away its Famous Tea. Guests can choose between iced sweet or unsweet black or green tea, served in a 32-ounce glass over crystal clear ice, no purchase necessary. McAlister’s tea is a labor of love, steeped with Rainforest Alliance Certified™ premium tea leaves and served with its famous red straw. “2017 has been a monumental year for McAlister’s,” said Paul Macaluso, president of McAlister’s Deli. “We opened our 400th restaurant and expanded into our 29th state earlier this year. As we look forward to the brand’s bright future, it’s important we celebrate our roots – including the menu staples that our guests know, love, and come back for time and again – including McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea™. When planning this year’s Free Tea Day it was important to extend the festivities to more than just one day. This month-long celebration is a thank you to our loyal fans and a chance for us to celebrate alongside them.”
