CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sixteen cities across America tipped off this week in the first-ever Bring Home Bojangles Bracket Challenge to find out which one wins a visit from the popular Southern chicken and biscuits chain.
Food lovers in Bojangles-less cities or those who have Bojangles nearby but want their friends and family to experience it can visit www.BringHomeBojangles.com and vote in the bracket-style tournament. The city with the most votes at the end of Round 4 will receive the Bojangles food truck for one week.
“We hear every day from fans all across the country who crave our real deal Southern flavor but don’t have a restaurant within driving distance,” said Jackie Woodward, chief marketing officer for Bojangles. “This is their chance to have us serve up delicious Southern food in their city. May the hungriest city win!”
The competing cities, which are seeded by their distance from Bojangles headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., include Boston; Chicago; Cincinnati; Dallas; Denver; Houston; Indianapolis; Las Vegas; Little Rock, Ark.; Miami; New Orleans; New York City; Philadelphia; St. Louis; San Francisco; and Tulsa, Okla.
Here’s how it works:
- Visit www.BringHomeBojangles.com and register with your email and zip code;
- Pick the cities you want to make it to the next round and cast your vote;
- Come back and vote once every 24 hours;
- See which cities advance each Monday and vote again for the remaining cities;
- Follow along as the winning city is announced on April 6.
After each of the four rounds, Bojangles will randomly select one fan to win $1,000 and a Bojangles prize pack, so no matter which cities advance, fans should continue to vote for the remaining cities for the chance to win. For official rules, go to www.BringHomeBojangles.com/rules.
The Bojangles food truck will visit the winning city later this year and give away free food for a limited time. Throughout the week, the food truck will also offer some of Bojangles’ signature menu items, including made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits, chicken, seasoned fries and Legendary Iced Tea®.
To encourage even more votes for their city, fans can share the challenge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and tag @Bojangles on each platform.
