February 7, 2011

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — One touchdown was all it took during yesterdays’ big game to give America its chance at a championship sandwich.

A&W® Restaurants–the home of All American Food® and handmade Root Beer Floats–announced today that it will reward fans with the Perfect Pair offer with Jennings and its Papa Burger® Single. Through an ongoing, long-standing partnership with Jennings, whose jersey is number 85, everyone in America will have the opportunity to receive an A&W® Papa Burger® Single for just $.85 today with the Green Bay wide receiver scoring two touchdowns in yesterday’s big game.

Customers can receive their $.85 Papa Burger® Single at participating A&W® Restaurants today. Customers will need to ask for the “Jennings Burger” to get their discount. For more information, including a store locator, please visit www.awrestaurants.com.

Additionally, A&W® Restaurants will randomly select 85 lucky customers who “like” the A&W Restaurants Facebook page and reward them with $10 gift cards to A&W® Restaurants. Log on to www.facebook.com/awrestaurants for more contest details.

“Not only did Greg Jennings amaze us with his first touchdown, but he also came back to score a second touchdown during the big game,” said Barry Westrum, Chief Marketing Officer, A&W® Restaurants. “No matter which football team you cheered for, everyone can score a delicious Papa Burger® Single made with 100 percent US Beef Steak Burger for just $.85 today thanks to him.”

In 2009, A&W® Restaurants began a grassroots partnership with Greg Jennings and offered $.85 Papa Burger® Single to Green Bay residents if the receiver scored a touchdown during a game. The popularity of the program quickly expanded in 2010 to reward all Wisconsin residents with $.85 Papa Burger® Single. This year, the company extended the Perfect Pair offer to all of America with the first announcement on January 13, 2011, during the Divisional Playoffs. The offer was then extended on January 20, 2011, to the Conference Championships and again on February 3, 2011, for the big game.
