WINNETKA, Ill., Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Football players are asked to pour their blood, sweat and tears into every game, but this shouldn't be an expectation of the tailgaters outside of the stadium. To make tailgating even easier, Tailgater Concierge makes its debut today as a one-stop solution for all tailgating needs – all fans need to do is show up and enjoy.
Tailgater Concierge provides the tents, tables, chairs, and coolers with ice and coordinates the food so fans can partake in tailgating festivities and worry about the more important things – like what shade of body paint their crew will be sporting in-game.
Neil Golden, Tailgater Concierge's Founder and Chief Tailgater, served as Chief Marketing Officer for McDonald's USA before he made his passion a profession. "As a lifelong fan of college football, I've seen firsthand how much work fans put into the tradition of tailgating and realize that many just want to enjoy their time with friends and family – not deal with the responsibility of owning, hauling, setting-up, taking-down, and storing their own equipment," he said.
"That's why Tailgater Concierge has teamed up with universities and local food partners to deliver a tailor-made tailgate experience at each game," Golden added. "We work out all of the details so that fans attending the pre-game festivities only need to know what time the tailgate party starts."
Beyond providing a top-notch tailgate experience, Tailgater Concierge is also making a difference at its partner universities and with students. Tailgater Concierge contributes a portion of all sales back to the university where each tailgate took place, provides an annual scholarship and offers students an opportunity to earn meaningful income and gain valuable work experience – without compromising their academic commitments.
Tailgater Concierge proudly tailgates at college football events nationwide, having already established relationships with eighteen partner universities across the nation. Tailgater Concierge's partner universities include (listed alphabetically):
- Arizona State University, Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Kent State University, Marshall University, Miami (Ohio) University, Mississippi State University, Northwestern University, Ohio University, Stanford University, University of Akron, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Illinois, University of Michigan, University of Mississippi, University of Nebraska, University of Southern California (USC), Wake Forest.
Tailgater Concierge provides complete tailgating services for groups of all sizes. To make it easy, there are two fan favorite packages – the Field Goal and the Touchdown -- which are detailed on the Tailgater Concierge website. In addition, tailgate packages can be entirely customized based on whatever needs fans have. On game day, tailgaters will be hosted by a thoroughly trained game day concierge team, who will be fully prepared to serve the group's needs.
"One of the most important drivers of starting Tailgater Concierge has been to make a difference in the lives of students. Our goal is to instill students with a service mindset, and empower them to help us localize the art of the tailgate so that our customers feel rewarded for their confidence in having Tailgater Concierge provide their tailgate," added Golden. "Students aren't simply brand ambassadors for us, they are the essence of the university's tailgating experience. They know the traditions and they live and breathe their school's sports on a daily basis, and that passion feeds into the quality of each and every tailgate we service."
