Tailgating in the South Doesn't Make Sense Without the Tea
Charlotte, N.C. - Oct. 10, 2011— Born and bred on the border of the Carolinas, Bojangles’ knows the perfect tailgate setup isn’t complete unless all the key Southern food groups are represented – chicken, biscuits and, of course, iced tea. It‘s hard to imagine a proper tailgate without iced tea, which is why Bojangles’ created the new Big BO Box to provide plenty of room for all the tailgate classics.
With Bojangles’ new Big BO Box, fans of football and Bojangles’ alike can conveniently carry their tailgating essentials in one box rather than having a box for the food and carrying tea with their other hand. And we’re not talking about just any tea, but a half-gallon of Bojangles’ Legendary Iced Tea™, steeped the old-fashioned way and an ideal complement to Bojangles’ world famous chicken.
“In the South, where football is a top priority every fall, a tailgate gathering can occur in a stadium parking lot or a crowded living room,” said Bojangles’ Senior Vice President of Marketing Randy Poindexter. “Either way, the most important asset for a tailgate party, aside from the football, is food and drinks. No beverage represents the South better than iced tea, and now we’ve made it easier than ever to include this fan favorite in your next tailgate.”
Bojangles’ goes a step further to make tailgating a breeze by also including plates, napkins, condiments and utensils. No preparation needed – just swing by Bojangles’ on your way to the game and you’ll have the best spread in the parking lot - or your neighborhood.
Because Bojangles’ prepares each of its menu items fresh all day long, tailgaters can pick up world famous chicken and fixin’s as early as 8 a.m. when tailgating for a game with a midday kickoff, or tasty biscuit sandwiches late in the afternoon to tailgate for a nighttime game. To ensure your food is ready when you want it, Bojangles’ recommends calling ahead to place large orders.
