Fridays Partners with Jamie Foxx

Posted on: September 28th, 2022 by nmilne

DALLAS, Sept. 27, 2022 — TGI Fridays and Jamie Foxx’s BSB – Brown Sugar Bourbon are ringing in fall with a menu of food and drink offerings that are sure to make the season saucier. Inspired by the smooth, slightly sweet flavors of Foxx’s BSB, TGI Fridays created its newest BBQ sauce, aptly named Foxx on the Roxx and is offering it up on a saucy lineup of signature menu items and pairing it with a new crafted cocktail.

The new Foxx on the Roxx BBQ Sauce – made with BSB and crafted by Foxx based on the flavors (and cocktails) he loves – brings some serious old fashioned cocktail vibes with hints of spice and citrus, and topped off with chopped cherries. The brand’s newest sauce is now available exclusively at TGI Fridays on some of Foxx’s favorite dishes, including:

Fridays® Big Ribs – A full-rack of double-basted fall-off-the-bone tender pork ribs basted in the new Foxx on the Roxx BBQ sauce

Bucket of Bones – A shareable portion of Fridays Big Ribs and Traditional Wings smothered with Foxx on the Roxx BBQ sauce

Wings Roulette Platter – Mix and match three of TGI Fridays signature boneless or traditional wing flavors including the new Foxx on the Roxx BBQ and two additional sauces

And no “Season of Saucy” is complete without a good cocktail – which is why Fridays and Foxx teamed up to create the Foxxy Mule. Sure to definitely set the party off right, the new beverage is the perfect mix of BSB, Monin Habanero Lime Syrup, Fever-Tree Ginger Beer, and a squeeze of lime.

“I’ve been going to TGI Fridays my whole life. I have so many great memories – from trips with my mom to celebrate special occasions as a kid to post-show celebrations with friends and family after my comedy shows when I was starting out – and to finally have the opportunity to create something for the Fridays menu and join the Fridays family with Brown Sugar Bourbon is remarkable,” said Jamie Foxx. “I hope everyone enjoys our cocktail and the Foxx on the Roxx sauce as much as I did creating them.”

TGI Fridays is also offering a Foxx on the Roxx digital exclusive for fans – including a half rack of ribs, six traditional wings and fries for $19.99. Guests can get their hands on this deal starting on October 4th exclusively through for a limited time.

“We’re all about bringing our mission of ‘lifting spirits’ to our guests – and we can’t think of any better way of doing this than partnering with Jamie Foxx and BSB on the ‘season of saucy,'” said Ray Blanchette, Chief Executive Officer at TGI Fridays. “We’ve worked really closely with Jamie and the BSB team to bring our guests flavors that are authentic to Jamie with an all-new flavor profile that we know our guests will love.”

TGI Fridays is also celebrating fall with the return of Make It a Double – giving fans the opportunity to enjoy their favorite combinations all on one plate. The brand’s Crispy Whiskey Combo, featuring a half-rack of double-basted pork ribs and Cajun-dusted crispy fried shrimp, and Surf ‘N’ Whiskey Turf, which includes a grilled 6 ounce sirloin and Cajun-dusted crispy fried shrimp, are available all season long with the new Foxx on the Roxx BBQ sauce..
