Mascots are used for all types of events and by all types of organizations.

A mascot is a marketing investment, so it's important to make sure you are maximizing its use. What do you do with your mascot when it isn’t busy cheering on the team? Does the mascot costume just sit in a closet, not being used?

Sammy Hagar's Rockin' Restaurant Mascot

[fa icon="calendar'] Jan 17, 2017 3:10:06 PM / by Angie Maxine posted in Custom Mascots, Celebrity Mascots, From BAM Mascots

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

One of rock 'n' roll's musical icons, Sammy Hagar, also known as the “Red Rocker”, has definitely made a name for himself over the years. From spending almost forty years in the music business, many of those years being the front man for the infamous Van Halen, to owning his own restaurant chains and continuously increasing his philanthropic donations, Sammy Hagar doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

 

One of his ventures, "Sammy’s Beach Bar & Grill", headlines his passion for food and cooking. Sammy Hagar started out with "Cabo Wabo Cantina" in Cabo San Lucas. This was followed by "Cabo Wabo Tequila", and then "Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum" in Maui, Hawaii - his first beach bar location. Expansion continued to busy airport terminals. There are now four "Sammy’s Beach Bar & Grill" locations, including one in the Kahului Airport in Maui, Hawaii, JFK Airport in New York, McCarran Airport in Las Vegas and another location in Hopkins International Airport in Cleveland, Ohio.
