TGI FridaysSM Beefs Up Father’s Day with the Help of Football Legend Daryl “Moose” Johnston and the Return of the Rib Flight Trio

June 15, 2015

CARROLLTON, Texas, June 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Starting today, TGI FridaysSM gives Dads their due by turning Father’s Day into Father’s Week and bringing back the Dad-worthy, Rib Flight Trio. Why? Because Dad deserves more days, meat and beer for all the great things he does.

Dallas football great and TV broadcaster, Daryl “Moose” Johnston, is letting everyone know the Rib Flight Trio is the perfect Father’s Week meal as he heads out on a media tour to share the news with America.

“As a big fan of ribs, I’m thrilled to be FridaysSM ‘rib ambassador,’ spreading the word to my fellow Dads about this legendary rib flight,” said Johnston. “Like any Texan, I’m partial to the Chipotle Smoked BBQ variety, but since the Rib Flight Trio gives you three styles on one plate, every rib-loving Dad is going to be happy.”

Starting today through June 21, treat Dad to three rib flavors prepared from a variety of rubs, crusts and sauces: Sweet Memphis Rub, Applewood Bacon Crust, Chipotle Smoked BBQ, Tennessee BBQ or the FridaysSM signature Jack Daniel’s®—all served with seasoned fries and slaw – for only $10.

Guests can pair those premium, meaty ribs with draft beers starting at $3. Or get the man of the week a $4 Leinenkeugel Summer Shandy draft.

“FridaysSM is bringing a little parental equality to America,” said Brian Gies, Chief Marketing Officer, TGI FridaysSM. “Mom usually gets taken out on Mother’s Day, while Dad is expected to stay home and grill on Father’s Day. We’re changing that with the return of Rib Flight Trio and the week-long Father’s Day celebration. Dad can get what he deserves – ribs, beer and time with the family.”
