Krystal Celebrates Root Beer Float Day With Week-long Offer



$0.99 Root Beer Floats from August 8 through August 12 Celebrate a Classic American Drink

Krystal Celebrates Root Beer Float Day With Week-long OfferThe Krystal Company, the brand famous for its iconic square hamburgers, is making a splash for National Root Beer Day.  A big splash – in honor of this fan favorite, Krystal is celebrating for a whole week!  From August 8 through August 12, Krystal will offer their Root Beer floats at a special price during Happy Hour (2-5 pm in participating locations) – only $0.99!

The Krystal Float is made with a blend of cold and frosty Barq’s Root Beer plus a generous scoop of creamy Blue Bunny vanilla bean ice cream. The special 99-cent float offering is available at participating Krystal locations, while supplies last – and only from August 8-12 from 2-5 pm.

“Nothing quite says ‘summer’ like a Root Beer Float – it’s the perfect way to refresh on a long, hot day” said Alice Crowder, Vice President of Marketing for The Krystal Company. “Sweet and foamy, ice cold and just a tiny bit decadent…there’s nothing better!”

The Float pairs nicely with Krystal’s latest menu addition, premium boneless wings, which come hand-tossed in a tangy barbecue or spicy buffalo sauce.

“At Krystal, we believe no celebration is complete without great food – and drinks,” Crowder continued. “Sometimes one day is just too short to celebrate the best things in life, and we’re looking forward to celebrating our great Floats all week long!”
