ATLANTA (May 6, 2021) – After the year we have been through, everyone deserves a sweet freebie! Back and better than ever in 2021, Great American Cookies® is continuing the national bake shop’s tradition of treating customers to one FREE original Chocolate Chip Cookie on Tax Day (Monday, May 17) at participating stores.* The shop’s sister brand, Marble Slab Creamery®, is offering a free* Regular Ice Cream with purchase of a Regular or Best Value Ice Cream at participating locations. Both deals are not valid with any other offers and co-brand store customers must select one Tax Day freebie – sorry, no double dipping.
“While taxes are never fun, there is something positive about the return of the Tax Day freebie – especially when it’s as delicious as fresh baked cookies or made-in-store ice cream,” said Annica Conrad, Chief Marketing Officer for Global Franchise Group, the parent company of Great American Cookies and Marble Slab Creamery. “After skipping our Great American Cookies Tax Day tradition in 2020 because of the pandemic, we are thrilled to make Tax Day 2021 bigger and better with another great deal at our Marble Slab Creamery stores. We invite everyone to join us on Tax Day and treat yourself!”
