Business roundup: Dress as a cow, get a free chicken sandwich

Don’t throw out that cow costume just yet.
As part of Chick-fil-A’s fifth annual Cow Appreciation Day celebration, the company is offering a free meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) to any customer who visits one of its restaurants fully dressed as a cow this coming Friday, July 10.
Customers dressed head to hoof as a cow will be rewarded with a free Chick-fil-A meal, which includes an entree of choice, a side item and a Dr Pepper (or other beverage).
For those too timid to wear cow costumes, Chick-fil-A will award a complimentary entree to customers partially dressed in cow attire, such as a cow-spotted scarf, purse, hat or other accessory.
Chick-fil-A has launched a special Web site dedicated to the occasion. Visit www.cowappreciationday.com.
Salisbury Chick-fil-a restaurants are located at 902 E. Innes St. and at the Salisbury Mall.
