TGI…Fries Day! Burger King Restaurants of Canada, Inc. is celebrating its new crispier, thicker-cut fries by declaring this Friday, January 27th "Free Fries Friday." To celebrate, guests are invited to visit a participating BURGER KING® restaurant and enjoy a complimentary small size order of new fries, with no purchase necessary, while supplies last.

The new fries at BURGER KING® offer a thicker cut of potato to give each bite a more fluffy, potato flavour on the inside and crispy, golden-brown deliciousness on the outside. The thicker-cut fries will also make a great addition to the popular poutine menu offerings at BURGER KING® restaurants - the Classic Poutine and POUTINE WITH BACON.

"We already have one of the most iconic burgers in the business, so our hope is to earn the same acclaim for our fries," said Lucy Todish, director of marketing for Burger King Restaurants of Canada, Inc. "Take advantage of 'Free Fries Friday' by stopping into your local BURGER KING® restaurant to taste the difference first-hand."

The new fries are available now at all BURGER KING® restaurants across the U.S. and Canada.
