Chickie’s & Pete’s to pay tolls for drivers on Memorial Day weekend

Philadelphia: On Memorial Day weekend, Chickie’s, best known for their world famous Crabfries, will be paying tolls for all travelers between 5 pm and 6 pm at the Egg Harbor Toll Plaza. This is the 5th year in a row Chickie’s & Pete’s has covered tolls for travelers.

“We absolutely love this event,” said Chickie’s & Pete’s founder and CEO, Pete Ciarrocchi. “It’s a little something to put everyone in a good mood as we get summer started.”

Ciarrocchi chose Memorial Day Weekend to pay tolls as a way to honor his family’s military tradition. His father and Uncles were all in the military. Ciarrocchi?s Uncle George, who was also his mentor in the bar/restaurant business, won the Silver Star for bravery.

With Free Toll Friday, Chickie’s will also set up free family fun at the Frank S. Farley Service Plaza from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be giveaways of the restaurant’s legendary Crabfries, free Herr’s/Chickie’s & Pete’s Sweet and Crabby Kettle Corn, appearances by The Philadelphia Soul Cheerleaders and their mascot Soul Man.
