Tijuana Flats “Fires Up” This Holiday Season
–Restaurant’s Just in Queso Foundation Holiday Hot Sauce to Raise Money for Children’s Charities–
Tijuana Flats and the company’s charity, the Just in Queso Foundation, are kick-starting this holiday season by giving back to children. The two are doing this by donating $3 from each bottle sold of its “Smack My Ass & Call Me Santa!” holiday hot sauce to four very deserving charities.
The hot sauce is available for purchase at all of the restaurants’ 78 locations and online at TijuanaFlats.com. Now in its 16th year, this initiative now has an added twist — consumers will be voting to determine how much of the proceeds each charity will receive.
Voting will take place at http://www.TijuanaFlats.com/Vote, and the more votes a charity gets, the higher percentage of proceeds they will receive. First place will receive 50 percent of proceeds, second place 25 percent, third place 15 percent, and fourth place 10 percent.
“Our company prides itself on giving back to the community,” stated Tijuana Flats Owner and CEO, Brian Wheeler. “And, with the help of our valued guests and supporters, we couldn’t be happier to be raising money for four children’s charities this holiday season.”
The four charities selected to participate in this year’s holiday campaign are: Kids in Support of Soldiers, UCP of Central Florida, Little Kids Rock, and Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
