The owners of the Original Baby’s Cheesesteak restaurants in Country Club Hills and Orland Park are giving away free Hostess Twinkies or chocolate cupcakes during regular business hours Dec. 5.
Customers have to make a purchase to get a free dessert, but there is no minimum dollar amount required.
After hearing the maker of the snack cakes was going out of business, the owners pretty much cleared the shelves — as well as the back storeroom — of a Hostess outlet store in Hazel Crest. In all, they snapped up 10,000 Twinkies and 2,200 cupcakes.
The Country Club Hills restaurant is at 4019 W. 167th St. and is open from 10:30 a.m. to midnight that day, while the Orland location, 15858 S. LaGrange Road, is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. For information, visit www.babyscheesesteak.com.
