Retail Food Group’s Donut King celebrated National Donut Day by giving away more than 44,000 donuts on 2 June.

Participating stores across the country offered one free hot cinnamon donut per customer.

The brand ramped up its marketing for the day, hosting a celebratory event with Australian singer Thelma Plum and a number of influencers in attendance.

Donut King marketing manager Raquel Hine said “There is something so nostalgic about a fresh, hot cinnamon donut. They are made fresh to order in-store, rolled in a sweet cinnamon sugar coating and served piping hot.”
