A&W Restaurant Offers Sweet Relief to Summer Heat in Mobile Smoothee Machine

A&W Restaurant has teamed up with experiential advertising company GoMobile Advertising to use innovative mobile billboards and a moving 1950s dinner to deliver free samples of new A&W slushees to Yakima area.

Yakima, WA, July 23, 2008 --(PR.com)-- To combat the expected sweltering summer heat in the months ahead, A&W began touring a mobile ice-cold smoothee and slushee machine around the Yakima area for consumers just in time for Independence Day, beginning July 3rd.

A&W is utilizing a special mobile advertising truck for their "Sweets & Treats" campaign, which features 10 scrolling mobile billboards showcasing the new A&W Cherry Lemonade slushee and BananaBerry Dream smoothee. In a 3D mobile showroom, the truck features a replica of a 1950's A&W diner, serving samples of the sweet treats to event crowds.

The state-of-the-art truck comes courtesy of GoMobile Advertising, an experimental marketing company that A&W is partnering with for their campaign. "The idea of a mobile drink machine where we could physically show consumers the product on-the-go is just what A&W needed for these summer events," said Chris Schuler, President of GoMobile Advertising.

A&W and GoMobile Advertising's campaign will wrap up August 3rd.
