American Restaurant Concepts Announces Partnership With The Jacksonville Jaguars
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Restaurant Concepts, Inc. (OTCBB: ANPZ) (ARC), operator and franchisor of the award-winning Dick's Wings & Grill® restaurants, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars under which it will serve as a sponsor of the Jaguars for the next three football seasons.
Under the terms of the partnership, ARC will market the Dick's Wings & Grill brand at all Jaguars preseason and regular season home football games at EverBank Field with concourse signage, radio advertising during Jaguars Game Day and either the Tailgate Show or Countdown to Kickoff, a rotating banner on the Jaguars.com website, and email blasts to season ticket holders throughout the season.
In addition, ARC obtained the right to operate a concession stand in the popular "Bud Light Party Zone" at EverBank Field during the Jaguars' preseason home games, the Jaguars' regular season home games, the Florida/Georgia college football game and the Gator Bowl. ARC also obtained certain rights to operate the concession stand during the Jaguars' home playoff games. ARC assigned all of the concession stand rights to an unrelated third party that is operating the concession stand as a free-standing Dick's Wings & Grill restaurant. ARC is receiving a monthly fee in return for the assignment.
