Grand Prize Winners Announced During TA Restaurant Group’s Fall “SweepSTEAKS”

TA Restaurant Group has announced the grand prize winners of their fall “SweepSTEAKS” program that ran from September 12 – November 21, 2016 at participating TA and Petro full service restaurants nationwide.

Country Pride®, Iron Skillet®, Johnson’s Corner®, “R” Place®, and TA Café offered customers a chance to win one of over 100,000 prizes including a $500 and $5,000 cash prize. Each time a guest purchased a select steak entrée, they received a scratch off card at the time their check was presented for a chance to win.

Allen K. Westover, a Vietnam veteran and seasoned commercial driver from San Jose, California, is the winner of the $500 prize. Allen was dining at the Iron Skillet at the Petro in Wheeler Ridge, California, on October 12 when he scratched off the winning ticket to reveal that he had won $500.

Mike Babcock, from Maricopa, AZ and a seasoned commercial driver from Empire Southwest LLC, is the winner of the $5,000 prize. Mike was dining at the Country Pride at TA in Tonopah, Arizona on November 7 when he scratched off the winning ticket to reveal that he was the winner of $5,000.

“We are excited to finally announce the grand prize winners of our fall 'SweepSTEAKS',” said John Ponczoch, Senior Vice President of TA and the leader of TA Restaurant Group. “Drivers and guests had a lot of fun with this program and many returned to continue trying for their chance to win one of the grand prizes. If even for a short while, we hope these types of activities can bring entertainment and joy to their day.”
