A message from Big Boy:
In recent days, there has been much speculation on the status of Big Boy being permanently replace as the icon of our restaurants. This cannot be further from the truth. Big Boy is America’s favorite mascot and has never, nor will he ever be replaced. Big Boy has been and continues to be the best and brightest of our brand.
Beginning in 1936, the original double-decker hamburger has been a staple of our restaurants and continues to be the benchmark for so many other brands. Often imitated, but never duplicated, Big Boy is a symbol of good times, happy days and fond memories. Big Boy will always be the icon, the hero of the brand – a brand that just celebrated it’s 84th birthday and a brand who is poised to continue to expand.
Any usage of the Dolly character was intended as a part of the promotion for the new Dolly Chicken Sandwich, which arrived in restaurants on Monday, July 6th. As a part of the promotion, Big Boy gave over 1,300 prizes away to celebrate the launch.
