Soulman’s Bar-B-Que Announces Partnership with Royse City Griffins
Baseball and Bar-B-Que Team Up For 2019 Inaugural Season
Royse City, TX (May 22, 2018)– Soulman’s Bar-B-Que has announced a partnership with the new Royse City professional baseball team, the Royse City Griffins.
Soulman’s CEO Brett Randle said, “We believe that great Texas BBQ fits perfectly with America’s favorite pastime — baseball. This partnership is deeply rooted in our shared focus on traditions and bringing the community together. Soulman’s is based in Royse City, and as our company grows within the region, the fun interaction with fans and attention on the Royse City Griffins will be a strong part of our community presence. Baseball and bar-b-que are part of the fabric of America and something we can all enjoy together.”
The new Royse City team will play in The Ballpark at Royse City, an innovative $11M stadium located on Interstate 30 Westbound in Royse City, TX across the highway from the Royse City High School. The state-of-the-art stadium will feature a seating capacity of 4,000 for baseball games and has been designed with VIP experiences in mind.
Eddie Dickens, Vice President of Business Development for the Royse City Griffins, was immediately attracted to Soulman’s Bar-B-Que, based on their loyal and local fan following. Dickens said, “When we saw how invested Soulman’s is in each community they serve from the quality of food to the dedication to service, it fell in-line with what our organization is establishing in the world of sports entertainment.”
He continued, “Soulman’s will be offering their tried-and-true traditional Texas bar-b-que from a prime location in our main concourse during our games, concerts and other sporting events year-round. We are even exploring the opportunity for our fans to order from their seats. Who wouldn’t want a Soulman’s Soulbowl, pulled pork or brisket sandwich delivered right to them at the bottom of the fourth inning? These are the types of experiences we are planning for our fans, families and community partners.”
Groundbreaking for the new stadium is scheduled for summer 2018.
