Checkers gives away free burgers on Friday

By WLOX Staff

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) – Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch? Well, almost free.

Checkers Drive-In Restaurants is offering free Big Buford cheeseburgers with any purchase Friday, December 11, from 11am to 2pm. The promotion will take place again next Friday, December 18.

Company President and CEO Enrique "Rick" Silva said the chain recently improved its signature burger by adding more meat and changing the bun.

"The decision to offer it free with any purchase during two Fridays in December is our way of wishing our Guests the best of the holiday season," Silva said.

All Mobile and South Mississippi-area Checkers are taking part in the promotion. The coast locations include two Checkers in Gulfport, on Pass Road and 25th Avenue, one on Highway 90 in Ocean Springs, and another on Denny Avenue in Pascagoula.
