Igloo and award-winning chef, restaurateur, author and television host, Guy Fieri, launched a limited-edition Playmate cooler to support the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation’s (NRAEF) Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF). With Guy Fieri at the forefront of leading the nationwide fundraising drive, the Restaurant Relief America campaign was created to support U.S. restaurant workers financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
Flavortown just got even cooler as 100 percent of the profits from the Guy Fieri Playmates sold on Igloocoolers.com will directly support U.S. restaurant workers financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

“If you don’t have a need for a good cooler, I don’t think you’re having enough fun! When we get through this crazy time, you’re gonna want to get back out into the sunshine and a great American-made Igloo cooler should be the first thing you grab,” says Guy Fieri. “With all profits going to support America’s restaurant workers, there couldn’t be a better time to stay cool in Flavortown.”
“The restaurant industry and its workers have already felt a tremendous impact due to COVID-19,” says Brian Garofalow, VP of Marketing at Igloo. “We’re honored to support Guy Fieri’s movement and do our small part to help American restaurant workers.”
The Guy Fieri design is based on Igloo’s iconic 7-quart Playmate style personal cooler featuring artwork with the “Flavortown” phrase made famous by Guy, the Knuckle Sandwich and Restaurant Relief America logos, and a print of Guy’s signature. The cooler is available now for $39.99 with 100% of the profits being donated to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund.
Starting April 2, 2020, impacted restaurant workers can apply online for a one-time, $500 check to use towards housing, transportation, utilities, child-care, groceries, medical bills and/or student loans. These grants will be administered by the NRAEF and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on donating to RERF visit RERF.US.
