Elevate Your Tailgate winners announced!

The 2016 Elevate Your Tailgate grand prize winner is Jennifer Davis of Little Birch, West Virginia. She won a Member’s Mark Sportsman’s Series portable gas grill, 5 pounds of Custard Stand Hot Dog Chili and 5 pounds of Custard Stand Chili Soup with Beef and Beans.

Jennifer’s fiance, Richard Henderson, met with Dee and Angie Cowger, co-owners of Custard Stand Food Products, to pick up the prize recently. “It’s so great that winner is from our home state,” said Angie Cowger. “This contest capped off an incredible year for our company and restaurants from appearing on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’ to becoming the Official Chili of WVU Sports.”

“I entered because we love Custard Stand’s hot dogs and the German Chocolate Cake milkshakes!” says Jennifer. “We usually have cookouts for birthday parties, and I buy the chili for those, so the hotdog chili and the grill will work out fantastic for that!” Plus, the grill will come in handy during their annual camping trip with their family.

“We will eat the chili soup easily this winter” she said. “We both work outside all day long and it will be nice to come home to a crockpot of chili to eat!”

Jennifer and Richard are getting married in May.

The other big winner was Jerry Cundiff of Dalzell South Carolina! He received a goody bag of Custard Stand gear including shirts and hats. Congrats, Jerry!

Stay tuned for our next contest. Look for it in early 2017.
