Website tracks free birthday meals


PHOENIX — More than 12,000 listings have been added to the website, which allows visitors to find restaurants in their city and state that offer a free meal, free appetizer, free drink, dessert or gift on their birthday.

Since launching in March, has received visits from more than 40,000 people in 71 countries. Offers are categorized by state, and a national page lists chains that offer birthday freebies. In some cases, registration is necessary with the restaurant.

“Restaurants providing something free for your birthday is a win-win for both the restaurant and the customer,” said site co-founder Matt Cox. “Restaurants know that by giving people something free on their birthday they’re going to attract more business. People often celebrate birthdays with friends and family, and customers will provide repeat business to the restaurants they like long after the birthday meal is over.

“For customers, going out to a restaurant you like and getting something for free is a great way to celebrate your birthday,” he added.
