Customers had a chance to win one of more than 100,000 prizes this fall.
TravelCenters of America announced that its TA Restaurant Group has revealed the grand prize winners of its fall “SweepSTEAKS” program that ran from Sept. 12 – Nov. 21, 2016 at participating TA and Petro full service restaurants nationwide.
Country Pride, Iron Skillet, Johnson’s Corner, “R” Place and TA Café offered customers a chance to win one of over 100,000 prizes including a $500 and $5,000 cash prize. Each time a guest purchased a select steak entrée, they received a scratch off card at the time their check was presented for a chance to win.
Allen Westover, a Vietnam veteran and seasoned commercial driver from San Jose, Calif., is the winner of the $500 prize. Westover was dining at the Iron Skillet at the Petro in Wheeler Ridge, Calif., on Oct. 12 when he scratched off the winning ticket to reveal that he had won $500.
Mike Babcock, from Maricopa, Ariz. and a seasoned commercial driver from Empire Southwest LLC, is the winner of the $5,000 prize. Babcock was dining at the Country Pride at TA in Tonopah, Ariz. on Nov. 7 when he scratched off the winning ticket to reveal that he was the winner of $5,000.
“We are excited to finally announce the grand prize winners of our fall ‘SweepSTEAKS’,” said John Ponczoch, senior vice president of TA and the leader of TA Restaurant Group. “Drivers and guests had a lot of fun with this program and many returned to continue trying for their chance to win one of the grand prizes. If even for a short while, we hope these types of activities can bring entertainment and joy to their day.”
