New Transit Tuesday Perk: Federal Donuts and Chicken!

January 24, 2024

At SEPTA - we always strive to be more than just a ride. We want to make every part of your journey easier. That's why we're excited to announce that Federal Donuts & Chicken is now offering 12oz. coffees for only $1 (+ appl. tax) every Tuesday when you flash your SEPTA Key card - saving you $1.50.

For most of recorded history - fried chicken and donuts was the combination you never knew you needed. But when Federal Donuts & Chicken burst onto the scene in 2011 - it raised the bar on these comfort classics - giving Philadelphians a whole new reason to get out of bed in the morning. Founded by five trailblazers including James Beard Award-winning restaurateurs Chef Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook - Federal Donuts & Chicken offers best in class donuts, fried chicken and coffee. And when paired with warm hospitality and a deep commitment to the community - FD&C is a hometown hero.

Federal Donuts & Chicken fans - above all else - flock to the shops for the extraordinary flavors. Spiced-cake Donuts are served Fancy (glazed & topped each morning in unexpected flavors), Classic (in old-fashioned milk glazes), or Hot Fresh (made-to-order and tossed in custom sugar & spice blends). Hand-battered and twice-fried Chicken comes as Tenders and Wings (with house made dipping sauces or dry seasonings), the Fried Chicken Salad, and the famous Fried Chicken Sandwich with Rooster Sauce (among a menu of chicken sandwiches). Coffee comes hot or iced and includes the signature Donut Latte (made with steamed milk steeped with donuts & warm spices).
