Denny's Honors Belibi & Women's Sports Equality
SPARTANBURG, S.C., Jan. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Denny's is returning the famed Super Slam® for a limited time - with the help of National Collegiate Athletic Association Women's Basketball Champion, Fran Belibi. As part of the Denny's "Super Slam Fran" partnership, the brand is donating $25,000 in her name to the Women's Sports Foundation, which was founded by Billie Jean King.
Denny’s honors Highflyer Fran Belibi and Women’s Sports Equality with Return of Fan Favorite Super Slam Menu Item
Denny's partnership with Belibi – a Stanford junior forward who is one of only eight women to ever slam dunk in a college game – serves as a continuation of Denny's Name, Image and License (NIL) deals. The first kicked off in September, celebrating college football's most often-forgotten players, offensive lineman, via the All-Pancaker Team. Both campaigns are part of the brand's continuing effort to use Denny's NIL deals to shine a light on underrepresented student athletes.
The fan-favorite Super Slam® is a real slam dunk in value for guests. It gives them a chance to enjoy more breakfast items for less - with high-quality ingredients, like two fresh eggs, two bacon strips, two sausage links, crispy hash browns and two fluffy buttermilk pancakes for just $6.99 or $8.99, depending on the market.
"At Denny's, we love to feed people – bodies, minds and souls," said Denny's Chief Brand Officer John Dillon. "Bringing back the guest-favorite Super Slam presented a great opportunity to partner with Fran Belibi, and to support the Women's Sports Foundation to help elevate women in sports who have traditionally received the short end of an even shorter stick - and build upon our commitment to supporting underrepresented athletes."
"I am thrilled to partner with Denny's for their latest Super Slam activation," said student-athlete, Fran Belibi. "I've been a longtime fan of Denny's restaurants and I am proud to help them bring awareness to improving women's inclusion and equality in sports."
