Gutierrez says, "We couldn't have found a better Group to work with in rolling out our bag in a box (BIB) tea product to restaurants than the Lehigh Valley Restaurant Group and Red Robin restaurants.

Chad Miller, Director of Purchasing for the Lehigh Valley Restaurant Group, says, "We're excited to partner with Larry Johnson and his company, Hall of Fame Beverages. We're always looking to serve our customers the very best, and Grand Ma Ma's Sweet Southern Tea will be a great addition to our menu. We would love to see the tea in every Red Robin restaurant all over America soon."
Hall of Fame Beverage's owner and founder, Larry Johnson, helped the franchise Group open its 18th location in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, back in April, and says Hall of Fame couldn't have found a better partner to highlight the company's new leadership and growth into the future.
