RNR Tire Express and its unofficial mascot Captain Jack Spare honors Tampa Roots with social media contest on International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19). The company is encouraging buccaneers across the nation to showcase their inner-pirate for a chance to get ‘hooked’ up with the ultimate treasure – a brand new set of tires and wheels, courtesy of RNR Tire.
From now until 12 a.m. EDT on September 19, those interested in winning the coveted pirate’s ‘booty’ can visit RNR’s official Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/RNRtires/) to watch Captain Jack Spare’s video in the pinned post. Entrants are then encouraged to channel their inner pirate and share a brief video in the comments of the post, highlighting the impact that RNR has made on their lives– in pirate speak, with the hashtag #JackSpare and #TalkLikeAPirate. Captain Jack Spare himself, A.K.A Vince Ficarrotta, Vice President of Franchise Development at RNR and his crew will choose one lucky winner to be announced on Saturday, September 22. No purchase is necessary to enter and winners will be announced on Facebook and at the grand opening of RNR Tire Express Colorado Springs.
“At RNR, we dedicate ourselves to being the best tire and wheel concept in America, but we wouldn’t be where we are today without our loyal customers,” said Larry Sutton, Founder and CEO of RNR. “What better way to engage with and thank these customers and our communities than by encouraging them to have a little fun with us and collectively celebrate our Tampa roots.”
RNR was founded in 2000 in Tampa, Florida – home of the annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival.
