SANTA BARBARA Today is the 12th annual Herb Peterson Day, and for the occasion all six McDonald’s restaurants in Santa Barbara and Goleta will celebrate the 99th birthday of the Egg McMuffin creator by selling the famous breakfast sandwich all day.
The creator’s son, David Peterson, who owns two McDonald’s locations in Goleta and formerly owned four in Santa Barbara, told the News-Press that Egg McMuffins will be $2 each with a limit of 5. All profits from the event will go to Unity Shoppe and the Bucket Brigade.
The four McDonald’s in Santa Barbara are at 1213 State St., 29 N. Milpas St., 1906 Cliff Drive, and 3940 State St. The two Goleta locations are 146 S. Fairvew Ave. and 6900 Market Place.
