Forget doughnuts, cops love waffles

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Even though National Waffle Day was on August 24, Comfort Inn & Suites in Custer continued the celebration on Wednesday.

The hotel hosted the Custer Sheriff and Highway Patrol officers to a free waffle breakfast to thank them for their service to the area.

Candace Atkinson, the general manager, said they wanted the officers to know how appreciated they are in the community for their daily hard work.

An added bonus for officers was the three flavored waffles available during the current Comfort Inn & Suites campaign. Patrons are asked to vote for their favorite flavor waffle to add to the hotel chain's lineup.
