Shiver me timbers! In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept. 19), RNR Tire Express (RNR) and its unofficial mascot Captain Jack Spare, will celebrate the brand’s Tampa roots by encouraging its customers across the nation to showcase their inner pirate.
Those who do will have a chance to get “hooked” up with a treasure of a brand new set of tires and wheels, courtesy of RNR.
From now until 12 a.m. EDT on Sept. 19, those interested in winning RNR’s pirate’s “booty” can visit the company’s 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 – Vince Ficarrotta, RNR’s vice president of franchise development – and his crew will choose one winner to be announced on Saturday, Sept. 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 – and professionally installs tires and custom wheels.
