ATHENS, GEORGIA, USA, September 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Barberitos, a fast-paced, casual burrito restaurant with over 50 locations in the Southeast, is pleased to announce professional tennis player Kat Jokic as the new brand ambassador of the chain. The restaurant will use Jokic to âserveâ as the brand’s spokesperson for healthy, lifestyle-focused menus on social media and participate in promotions. As she travels the southeast playing tournaments, Jokic will spend time visiting the sights of Barberitos.
âWe are delighted to welcome Kat to the Barberitos family and look forward to seeing her impact the brand by focusing on a healthy lifestyle,â said Downing Barber, Founder and CEO of Barberitos. “Kat has always been a smash hit on the tennis court, and we are honored that she contributes to our mission of serving farm-fresh food to Barbs communities and their inhabitants.”
Jokic enjoyed a decorated tennis career at the University of Georgia, where she helped the Bulldogs win both regular season and SEC tournament titles. She was crowned the SEC Challenge Singles Champion and was the country’s first International Tennis Federation singles player.
âAs a student athlete it has always been important for me to fill up on healthy, filling meals, and Barberitos ‘as’ every time,â said Jokic. âThis partnership fits me naturally as I have been a fan of the brand since I first left Bosnia in America in 2017. I am always looking for a healthy and tasty meal and I can’t wait to stop at Barberitos while my tournament travels throughout the Southeast.
