7-Eleven will once again this year give free 12-ounce cups of coffee or other hot beverages to customers who visit stores between 11 p.m. Dec. 31 and 7 a.m. Jan. 1.

While this year marks the 20th year that the convenience store chain has given away New Year’s coffee, some stores might not participate in the giveaway.

Stores that are participating will display a sign on their front windows announcing “free coffee.”

Since 1988, 7-Eleven representatives said the company has given away more than 1 million cups of coffee to New Year’s Eve drivers.
