Shane’s Rib Shack, a Petrus Brand company, is rewarding customers for not peeking at gifts this year by giving away more than $500,000 in prizes during the No Peek Sweepstakes.

During the month of December, every customer who dines at a participating Shane’s Rib Shack location and purchases a qualifying menu item will receive a No Peek envelope with a special prize inside. No Peek envelopes have been sealed and may not be opened by anyone other than a Shane’s Rib Shack employee before Jan.1, 2010. Customers must bring back their sealed envelope to the same Shane’s Rib Shack location where they received it during January or February of 2010 to reveal their prize.

Each location will distribute 5,000 No Peek envelopes to customers containing various prizes. Prizes offered include a free 20 ounce drink, free dessert, free sandwich combo, free BBQ pork or chicken plate, a $50 gift certificate or a free catering for 10.

“We couldn’t think of a better time to thank our customers for their loyalty than during the holiday season.” says Shane Thompson, president and founder of Shane’s Rib Shack.

“The No Peek sweepstakes is a fun way for our employees and customers to celebrate the holiday season together.”
