Coming Fall of 2017, Tailgate Guys is proud to partner with the University of South Florida. Having a fun tailgate experience just got easier for Bulls fans with Tailgate Guys offering full-service tailgating for all home games this season. Be sure to stop by Raymond James Stadium to see us!
Our mission with Tailgate Guys is to provide a superior service to the game-day fan, the university and the communities in which we live and work. We have continued to meet our mission through precise attention to detail, a passion for guest service, innovative branding, and consistent operational execution.
Whether you’re hosting five guests or 2,000, Tailgate Guys offers packages that will meet all your needs for game day success.
Food and beverage is a big part of any tailgate event. At Tailgate Guys we make sure that your tailgate catering is hassle-free just like all other Tailgate Guys services. Tailgate Guys has partnered with four caterers to offer a wide range of quality catering options. One thing to note—catering delivery times are subject to availability.
We offer an attractive and organized tent layout and site plan that helps guests easily find their tailgate location. To create a comfortable and friendly atmosphere that encourages human interaction, we consult with a professional community planner on the layout of each location. All of our guests receive a site-specific map that indicates their tailgate location for either a single game or the full season.
Our USF Crew
Our success depends on our team’s ability to work together seamlessly. That’s why we’re grateful for team members who diligently ensure that each guest has an unforgettable game day experience.
A Plano, Texas native, Eric has extensive experience in athletic event management. Before joining the Tailgate Guys team, Eric served on the athletic event management team at Auburn University's Athletics Department. Eric's background paired with his natural enthusiasm for customer service has made him an ideal fit with Tailgate Guys. If you think you are a sports guru, try this guy. As Tailgate Guys' "sports almanac," we dare to try to stump Eric. He and his wife, Morgan both Auburn grads, are happy to return to Alabama to raise their daughters Hadlee & Sadie.
