Fast food operators even have a special day to look forward to with Drive-Thru Day.

For beverage marketing, there are days set aside for Anisette, Daiquiris, Grand Marnier, Piña Coladas, Scotch and Tequila.

Other days of the month lend themselves to unique and even silly opportunites for in-store and social media promotions.  Music lovers have National Country Music Day and Barbershop Music Appreciation Day to look forward to.  Social media savvy operators might run photo contests for National Hillbilly Day, Parent’s Day, Teddy Bear Picnic Day and Bikini Day.  And who wouldn’t want to pucker up for a discount on International Kissing Day?
