Central Coast McDonald's restaurants celebrate Herb Peterson Day
BY JOE PAYNE
Central Coast McDonald’s restaurants are celebrating the sixth annual Herb Peterson Day by offering the iconic Egg McMuffin sandwich for only $1 on Jan. 6 at participating Central Coast franchises.
Herb Peterson opened his first McDonald’s franchise in Santa Barbara in 1968 and quickly was overseeing six stores. Peterson noticed a deficit in local breakfast options and hoped to fill the gap. After employing a local blacksmith to design a metal ring that would encase a cooking egg and result in an egg patty that would fit in a sandwich, Peterson took his new idea to McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc who approved the iconic fast food joint’s very first breakfast item.
McDonald’s participating in Herb Peterson Day can be found in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Paso Robles, and Carpinteria. There is a limit of two sandwiches per customer, with the promotion only available during breakfast hours. More information is available at mcdonalds.com.
