TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tampa tailgates will look a bit different this year, so local Tampa area Wendy’s restaurants are giving University of South Florida fans a reason to celebrate with Wendy’s breakfast. Students and Bulls fans alike can get a FREE craveable Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit with purchase on every University of South Florida football game day (Friday or Saturday pending season schedule) upon request, starting this Saturday, Sept. 12. When fans make any breakfast purchase on game day via drive thru or in-restaurant, they can request a free Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit.

Wendy’s is not only fueling fans’ game day this fall. Restaurants in Tampa rolled out Meals for Educators, a program to support Dave Thomas’ vision of “Give Something Back.” To kick off the school year, local Tampa area Wendy’s restaurants provided over 5,500 educators in the area with free Wendy’s breakfast combos, coupons and coffee key tags good for a free hot coffee with purchase through the end of the year to fuel their morning. After all, they deserve way more than an apple.

“Giving back to the communities we serve is a core belief at Wendy’s and we’re excited many of our Tampa-area restaurants participated in the Meals for Educators program,” said Kevin Zarcone, Director of Area Operations, The Wendy’s Company. “We know teachers are facing many challenges this year, and we wanted to express our appreciation the best way we know how, with a high-quality and delicious breakfast.”
