Three QSR Chains Who Have Been Handing Out Food And Drinks At Bank Queues


Over the past two weeks, India has had a bit of a crisis following demonetization, where Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes became defunct. Queues outside banks and ATMs are (almost) as long as the Great Wall of China and restaurants have reported a slump in customers immediately after the demonetization.

However, as the saying goes, whenever there’s a cloud, there’s a silver lining. A few QSR chains across the country played the fairy godmother when they visited bank queues to hand out free food and drinks to queues. Here are three such chains:

Genuine Boaster Chicken


Genuine Boaster Chicken was serving fresh lemon juice to people in bank and ATM queues in Versova, Surat and Raipur; all locations where the brand has an outlet.

Pizza Hut


Pizza Hut did rounds in Delhi, Mumbai, Gurgaon, Pune and Bangalore paying visits to banks like ICICI, HDFC, Corporation Bank and the Bank Of Baroda for a weekend. Its employees were handing out free slices of pan pizza as well as glasses of water.



Subway franchises in Mumbai and Odisha paid visits to bank employees- who have been put in charge of managing queues, irate customers, withdrawals and deposits – with their signature Subway submarine sandwiches.
