Pinkberry launched an exciting and buzz-worthy one day activation that is forking awesome. To celebrate the season three premiere of the hit NBC show, Pinkberry served their swirls with forks on Thursday, September 27.

Baja Fresh will also be offering their burritos, Buy One, Get One Free all day Thursday, September 27 to celebrate the return of “The Good Place.” We have spoken to some franchisees who reported a notable sales lift.
