Welcome Our Newest GM, Jordon West

Posted on: November 8th, 2022 by nmilne

Glenn Allen, November 07, 2022 – United Restaurant Group welcomes Jordon West as our newest GM in our Wilmington, DE, store. Jordon started as a dishwasher in the restaurant industry at 16 for Shoneys. He started in our New Castle store in 2002 as a server. After working at other concepts, he returned to Fridays in 2019 as a bartender.

“This summer, I had the opportunity to watch Jordon present the train-the-trainer class for the server guides in front of GMs, server managers, and coaches. At that moment, I knew that Jordan wasn’t just a good manager, but he was becoming a great leader.” Said Jimmy Cabanban, VP of Operations for United Restaurant Group. 

When not at work, Jordan loves spending time with his wife of 10 years and 4 children. He enjoys the outdoors, cheering for his children on the sidelines, and weekend family camping trips in the mountains. 

Congratulations, Jordan. We look forward to your future successes!

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 Fridays.com 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..

To Our Valued Customers & Staff,

First and foremost, we want to express our sincere concern for everyone who has been impacted by the Coronavirus.

The health and wellbeing of our team members and guests is always our number one concern, and we wanted to share with you some actions we’ve taken to ensure your continued safety during these trying times.

At this time, all of our restaurants have transitioned to curbside pick and 3rd party delivery service only, and due to this, we are offering a slightly limited menu that supports this service change.

We have reinforced our already robust quality assurance and safety standards by taking these preventative steps:

We have been following the guidance of the CDC and our local health departments and will continue to do so as this situation evolves.

Please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you in our dining rooms soon.

Sincerely,
