Protective Eyewear Isn’t Required to Enjoy These Fast-Food Franchise Specials

On April 8, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, making it the first eclipse people on the continent will be able to see since August 2017. NASA defines a total solar eclipse as when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the sun. Lucky Americans in 13 states (including Texas and Maine) will be best positioned to witness the rare spectacle – while donning protective eyewear, of course!  

With millions expected to travel this April 8 to get the best view, fast-food franchises can get in on the fun with out-of-this-world specials and discounts. Don’t let the following deals pass you by – the next total solar eclipse in North America isn’t until August 2044
