He said in a press release:

We will surprise and delight our fans year-round with food and treat innovations that they have come to expect from us. We’re extending the celebration beyond Free Cone Day because it’s about more than just one day.

And as if that wasn't reason enough to get down with this tasty celebration, DQ locations participating in Free Cone Day will also be accepting donations for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. All donations collected will stay in the communities where they're raised to support the local kids at CMN Hospitals. Talk about sweet.
