Jack Astor’s To Bring $70,000 Potato Salad To Canada
Toronto, Ontario (Wednesday, July 9th, 2014) — The goal was to raise $10 and create a few laughs but Zack Danger Brown has raised $69,881 on Kickstarter so that he can make…potato salad. What’s the next logical step? Bringing the Internet-famous potato salad to the people!
Jack Astor’s has been following Brown’s campaign and thought the partnership would be a perfect fit. The restaurant has offered to fly Brown to one of their 39 kitchens and collaborate with their executive chef to create the best potato salad for Canada’s first Potato Salad Party. All profits from sales of his potato salad will be donated to a charity of Brown’s choice.
Over the past nine days, Brown has become a feature in mainstream news and has the Internet’s rapt attention as his Kickstarter donations have continued to climb. This week, Brown was interviewed on Good Morning America and mentioned on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
“Canadians love potato salad, and our restaurants have an irreverent sense of humour, like Zack” said Somer Mullins, Jack Astor’s marketing manager. “It seems like a perfect partnership. So we’re hoping Zack will take us up on our offer!”
Jack Astor’s and Brown have been in contact via his Kickstarter campaign page and Twitter about bringing Brown and his potato salad to Canada once his campaign closes on August 2nd, 2014. The only condition? That he doesn’t tell poutine!
