Dwightmare Begins

Dallas-area restaurant is offering Dwight Howard chicken fingers for life if he signs with the Mavericks.

On Monday, Raising Cane’s will kick off a campaign inviting Mavericks fans to help persuade Howard to sign with Dallas. The company has leased six electronic billboards to help publicize its cooked-up offer to Howard.

Raising Cane’s marketing manager Adam Reed says that if Howard signs with the Mavericks, “he will be welcome to come by any of our (20) local restaurants to enjoy seriously delicious chicken fingers at any time, on us, for the rest of his life.”

Forget the millions being offered by teams across the league. Basketball superstar Dwight Howard stands to earn free chicken finger meals — for life — if he signs a free agent contract to play in Dallas, thanks to a bold pledge by DFW-area Raising Cane’s restaurants.

The nation’s #1 quick service chain, which currently boasts 20 restaurants across the DFW Metroplex, is known for its ONE LOVE® — quality chicken finger meals – and it’s putting a lifetime of them on the line to persuade Howard to sign with Dallas.

“These next few days, Dwight Howard will be making arguably the most important career decision of his life,” said Adam Reed, Marketing Manager at Raising Cane’s. “We have a lot of passionate fans among our Crewmembers in our DFW restaurants, so we thought we’d make Dwight an offer he couldn’t refuse to up the ante for a Dallas-bound decision. We are also calling on every Dallas fan to join us in making the case online, in order to bring the big man to Big D.”

Raising Cane’s has created a special hashtag, #CANES4DWIGHT, that fans can use to join the campaign to recruit Howard to Dallas and bring the championship trophy back where it belongs.

Fans will be entered for a chance to win Free Cane’s for a Year, as well as four tickets to Dallas’ 2013 home opener, each time they use the customized hashtag. The winner will be announced shortly after Howard announces his decision.

Reed was quick to point out that he can’t speak for Cane’s locations outside DFW, but “Should Dwight decide on Dallas as his new home, he will be welcome to come by any of our local restaurants to enjoy seriously delicious chicken fingers at any time, on us, for the rest of his life.”

Chicken fingers probably aren’t in Dwight Howard’s diet. But I guess it’s worth the shot.

Besides, they just got free publicity.
