The 90,000-plus fans attending the 2016 Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on Jan. 1 will be in for a special pork tenderloin treat.
Chuckies Tenderloins of Dewitt will be on hand selling its delicious, award-winning breaded pork tenderloins from two trailers inside and outside the stadium before and during the game.
“We’ll be in Lot H from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and we’ll have a trailer inside the stadium too,” said Charles Cox, who co-owns the traveling tenderloin concession with his wife, Sandy.
Chuckies is making a name for itself on the West Coast and its reputation for serving quality tenderloins was noticed by the Rose Bowl and it invited Charles and Sandy to serve at the 2016 game between Iowa and Stanford.
Charles has 30 years of experience in the restaurant business. He owned and operated TC’s Point After in Dewitt, where he developed and perfected his famous tenderloin. Chuckies Tenderloin has placed three times in the Iowa Pork Producers Association’s annual Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Contest, earning honorable mention in 2006 and 2014 and taking second in 2009.
In 2008, Cox began operating a mobile unit at Hohokam Park in Arizona, the spring training home of Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs. It was so popular, Chuckies expanded its spring training business to also include San Diego and Seattle training camps in Arizona, the San Diego Chargers of the NFL in California and various Formula 1, NASCAR and drag racing venues.
