Pandas Join Tigers, Dragons
"The tie-in with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a natural for us, given our heritage and commitment to build our brand," said Victoria Gelberg, vice president of marketing for parent company Panda Restaurant Group. "The high-profile partnership and promotional elements provide added value to our guests."
All "release for sale" DVD's and VHS videos carry a coupon for $1.00 off any two-item combination plate or greater purchase at Panda Express. Since November 4, customers have received one of four collectible plastic cruiser cups featuring scenes from the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon movie with the purchase of a 32-ounce beverage.
Customers of Panda Express can enter a sweepstakes featuring a grand prize of a trip for two to Hong Kong. All Panda Express locations feature point-of-purchase materials showcasing scenes from the movie.
