June 06, 2017 // Franchising.com // KODAK, Tenn. - Beef Jerky Outlet will host their annual celebration of National Jerky Day on June 12 with Bacon Mania and the release of their new flavor, Applewood Smoked Bacon Jerky. Bacon Mania is a week-long event kicking off on Saturday, June 12, and runs through Father’s Day on Sunday, June 18. Beef Jerky Outlet locations across the country are treating customers to a store full of fun.
Building on Beef Jerky Outlet’s philosophy of try it before you buy it, during Bacon Mania shoppers can enjoy free, chocolate-covered bacon jerky samples, served fresh from a real chocolate fondue pot. Each store will also have a limited number of Bacon Mania t-shirts to give away, in addition to recipe cards for creative, jerky-centric recipes like “Man Candy” and “Bacon Jerky Nachos.” Four-ounce bags of bacon jerky will be available at a discounted rate, and customers may even be treated to a visit from Bacon Mania mascot, Hamlet the Pig.
The Bacon Mania event culminates with a grand prize shopping spree. One lucky winner at each Beef Jerky Outlet location will get the chance to grab as many 4-ounce bags of bacon jerky as they can in 12 seconds while wearing a full-body Hamlet the Pig suit. After 12 seconds of pure bacon mania, the lucky meat-lover gets to pig out on their hard-earned bacon jerky.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating National Jerky Day again this year,” says Kathy Raines, COO of Beef Jerky Outlet. “Every year, we have so much fun with different events; this year, we have really stepped up the fun with Bacon Mania.
