Joe Gibbs Racing Motocross to Work the Temecula Wienerschnitzel on February 11
February 05, 2016 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, California - Wienerschnitzel, the world’s largest hot dog chain, is giving control of the Temecula location to their motocross partner, Joe Gibbs Racing Motocross (JGRMX), on Thursday, February 11 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Members of the JGRMX team including riders Weston Peick, Justin Barcia and Phil Nicoletti, along with team owner, Coy Gibbs, will take over the restaurant to help Wienerschnitzel raise funds for two non-profit organizations. The restaurant takeover is happening just days before the Sixth Round Monster Energy Supercross race at Petco Park in San Diego on February 13.
“It’s a great feeling to know that JGRMX stands behind our mission of ‘serving food to serve others,’” said Wienerschnitzel Chief Visionary Officer, Rico Ferrante. “We are truly passionate about using our restaurants as vessels to give back to our communities as much as possible. This event is a great way to raise funds for important causes while having some fun with the fans!”
The JGRMX team will take over restaurant operations from working the register and drive-thru to manning the condiment station and grills. Wienerschnitzel will donate 100 percent of sales from the event to the following organizations: United Service Organization (USO), the nation’s leading organization serving the U.S. military and their families, as well as Road 2 Recovery which provides financial assistance for motocross and Supercross members who sustain career-ending injuries.
“We love having partners like Wienerschnitzel who are committed to supporting charitable organizations, and we’re happy to help any way we can,” said JGRMX owner Coy Gibbs. “It’s going to be a lot of fun working in the restaurant and interacting with the fans all while raising money for these very worthy causes. A big thanks to Wienerschnitzel for getting us involved!”
