It's National doughnut Day. Here are some local deals:

  • Dunkin' locations nationwide are offering a free classic doughnut with any beverage purchase on Friday.
  • 7-Eleven told Axios that loyalty members can get a glazed doughnut for $1 Friday at its convenience stores as well as Speedway and Stripes locations.
  • Union Square Doughnuts is giving away scratch tickets with every purchase to a chance to win more doughnuts.
  • Select varieties will be $1 at Blackbird Doughnuts.

The big picture: June 7 is the made-up food holiday for one of America's favorite treats. It was established in Chicago in 1938 to honor the Salvation Army Donut Lassies who served the treats to soldiers during World War I.
