Crispers Restaurants Sign Endorsement Deal with U.S. Olympic Sprinter Justin Gatlin

July 11, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
Crispers Restaurants, the fast-casual restaurant chain based in Lakeland, Florida, has officially signed a 1 year endorsement deal with U.S. Olympic sprinter, Justin Gatlin. As part of the deal, Gatlin will be endorsing Crispers on a variety of websites and social media outlets, making appearances at Crispers restaurant locations in Florida, and providing autographed promotional items for Crispers customers.

Crispers makes this announcement fresh on the heels of Gatlin's 1st place Olympic qualifying time (and personal best time) of 9.80 seconds in the men's 100M U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier final, which was held on June 25, 2012 in Eugene, Oregon. Gatlin is now widely considered to be the top prospect for the U.S. in the men's 100M this summer at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, England.

The endorsement deal is a natural fit for the parties, as Justin Gatlin already dines at Crispers on a regular basis. Crispers President Ron Fuller stated, "We're very excited to have Justin endorse our restaurants, and extremely proud of his outstanding achievements as an American Gold, Silver, and Bronze Olympic Medalist. We wish him the best of luck in London this summer!"
