In a neat, Willy Wonkaesque promo last Saturday, Federal Donuts tucked golden tickets, each guaranteeing free chicken for life, into two orders.
One winner - a happy couple - was identified at the South Philly location. But the winner at the Center City location, however, never came forward.
Co-owner Tom Henneman believes that the ticket inserted into one of "a few hundred" orders at FedNuts' Sansom Street shop was inadvertently thrown out.
All is not lost. Henneman and partner Steve Cook are devising a second-chance deal.
