Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews is giving fans a fun reason to connect around the table and get out of their seats to show off their dance moves in celebration of its new Bacon Bash menu items. The brand is introducing a tasty trifecta of limited-time offerings, including a Bacon Jammin’ Wings appetizer, Bacon Jammin’ Gourmet Burger and Caramel & Cookie Crumb Shake with candied bacon, to the delight of bacon lovers everywhere.

To celebrate the new menu items, the brand has partnered with Derek Hough – two-time Emmy Award winner, professional dancer, choreographer, actor and singer – to encourage fans to show off their moves with a Bacon Dance TikTok challenge launching on International Dance Day (April 29).

“We are so excited about the introduction of our new limited-time Bacon Bash menu items, we wanted to celebrate with our guests in an especially fun and engaging way,” says Jonathan Muhtar, Red Robin Executive Vice President & Chief Concept Officer. “There’s no better partner than Derek Hough to lead our Bacon Dance challenge, creating connections among fans, friends and families everywhere. Guests are letting us know that they love the new menu items, and they’re enjoying them both in our restaurants and in the comfort of their own homes.”

“Red Robin’s new Bacon Bash menu items are so good, you can’t help but dance,” says Derek Hough. “So, Red Robin and I have come together to create the newest TikTok dance challenge calling on all Red Robin fans, bacon-lovers and dance enthusiasts to show off their moves for a chance to join me for a virtual ‘meet-and-eat’ over Red Robin’s new menu items.”
