Seven Students Win One Year of Free Potato Olés® from Taco John's

June 20, 2014 // Franchising.com // Potato Olés® have long been a favorite of Taco John's® guests. Now seven college students will be able to enjoy one free order of Potato Olés® every day for a year.

The students won their "Golden Tickets" for the free food through a social media contest hosted by the Mexican quick service restaurant chain. Taco John's® invited people to use the hashtag #TacoJohns when posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Vine. All seven students' winning entries were posted on Twitter.

The social media contest was part of a College Road Tour that Taco John's® launched to raise awareness of its new Flamin' Hot® Cheetos® Burrito. Taco John's® visited a total of 18 colleges and universities across 7 different states. At each stop, people were given an opportunity to win a "Golden Ticket."

"We want to get people talking about the Flamin' Hot® Cheetos® Burrito, and we knew college campuses would be a good place to start," says Renée Middleton, Vice President for Marketing at Taco John's®. "We see the Golden Ticket as a great opportunity to say thanks to our loyal guests in Omaha."

The winners were:

  • Abby Pierce – The University of South Dakota
  • Josh Ray – The University of Kansas
  • Jared Karlson – Creighton University
  • San Chandra – Augustana College
  • Mikala Hunt – The University of Nebraska, Omaha
  • Alexia Henschke – Briar Cliff University
  • Eric Woodraska – The University of Iowa

In each college town, Taco John's® also gave away hundreds of free bags of Flamin' Hot® Cheetos® snacks and half price coupons for the limited time offer. The Flamin' Hot® Cheetos® Burrito will be available through July 13.
