Duffy’s Sports Grill, South Florida’s favorite sports themed restaurant chain, today announced a partnership with Lauren Tannehill, wife of Miami Dolphins’ starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. This alliance marks the first time Lauren Tannehill has ever partnered with a restaurant brand specifically to engage fans and consumers alike. As the official sports grill of the Miami Dolphins, as well as every other Miami sports team, Duffy’s has invited Lauren Tannehill to join in their consumer engagement with a variety of events.
The couple was welcomed to South Florida earlier this year when Ryan was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. Having been featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” Lauren Tannehill quickly became Miami’s newest sweetheart, took her newfound fame in stride, and is thrilled to now have the chance to reach more fans by joining forces with Duffy’s – evident through her enthusiasticTweets yesterday announcing the partnership.
“Even though I like to keep our life somewhat private, it’s obvious I also love to talk with all of our fans on Twitter and Facebook,” said Lauren Tannehill. “Given the Miami Dolphins fans’ love for watching the games at Duffy’s Sports Grill, and how supportive Duffy’s is of the Dolphins, it seemed like a natural partnership to pursue. I love that Duffy’s is giving me the opportunity to more closely connect with the fans in new ways, both online and in person.”
“Everyone in South Florida knows that Duffy’s and the Miami Dolphins go hand-in-hand, and since Lauren is a Duffy’s fan already, this partnership is a no-brainer,” said Paul Emmett, CEO of Duffy’s. “Lauren will be a fantastic link to bring the fans closer to both Duffy’s and the Dolphins.”
Over the next three months, Tannehill will be directly involved with the Dolphins and Duffy’s for charity events and ticket giveaways. By following Duffy’s and Tannehill on Twitter and Facebook, fans will have the chance to win Miami Dolphins tickets and find out how they too can participate in other exciting events with Tannehill, such as Duffy’s upcoming Dolphins Road Rally in North Miami Beach on December 9th.
Tannehill will also work alongside Duffy’s Corporate Executive Chef Eric Parker to showcase the restaurant group’s new fresh menu offerings in a series of videos called “Duffy’s Chef School.” Some of the footage will be made into a commercial spot that will debut during Super Bowl 47 this February. The videos will be made available online to fans, showcasing a behind-the-scenes look into Duffy’s kitchen with Chef Eric and Tannehill demonstrating how Duffy’s signature recipes are made.
All Miami Dolphins and Duffy’s Sports Grill fans should make sure to follow both Duffy’s and Lauren Tannehill on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on upcoming giveaways, events and special videos.
