Cousins Subs® Awards UW Badger Fan With Big Red Tailgate

Wisconsin-based Sup Shop Partnered with UW Athletics on ‘Bucky’s Bash’ Sweepstakes

December 20, 2017 // // MILWAUKEE - Cousins Subs® celebrates its fourth year of partnership with UW Athletics by awarding a VIP tailgate experience to one lucky Badger fan through its ‘Bucky’s Bash’ sweepstakes.

From Oct. 23 - Nov. 19, participants were encouraged to enter the sweepstakes daily for a chance to win a 50” LED Smart 4K Ultra HD television, Samsung sound bar system, Badger sports package and a two-hour visit from Cousins’ Traveling Sub Shop.

Out of nearly 11,000 entries, Joe Carpentier of New Berlin, Wisconsin was selected as the grand prize winner and scored an exclusive at-home tailgate experience as the UW Badgers closed out the football season. Carpentier, along with family and friends, cheered on the Badgers while enjoying grilled and deli-fresh sub sandwiches, fries and Wisconsin Cheese Curds from the Traveling Sub Shop parked right in his driveway.

Carpentier reflects on the experience by stating, “The at-home tailgate was super cool. My favorite part was having the Traveling Sub Shop catered for the game, but winning the TV was also a close tie! My family was already getting together for the game so it was great that I was able to provide Cousins Subs for everyone while cheering the Badgers to victory.”

“As a sub shop originated in Milwaukee, our local roots run deep with UW pride,” said Justin McCoy, vice president of marketing at Cousins Subs. “We’re honored to offer an unforgettable experience to someone like Joe Carpentier, who mirrors this same Wisconsin pride our business is founded on.”

As a sponsor of UW Athletics, Cousins Subs will sell select sub sandwiches at the Kohl Center during all men’s Badgers basketball and select hockey home games throughout the 2017-2018 sports season.
