Grand Rapids FC Signs 13th sponsor for 2016

Grand Rapids Football Club is proud to announce our 13th Corporate Sponsor for the 2016 season. Please help us welcome SLOWS BAR BQ Grand Rapids!

Slows Bar Bq Detroit celebrated its ten year anniversary in 2015. Opened in Detroit’s Corktown in September of 2005, Slows was designed to be a small neighborhood joint and a contributing force to the surrounding community. Slows quickly grew beyond just those initial goals. Over the ensuing decade, Slows expanded with the catering, carryout & food truck operation, Slows To Go, in Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood and into NFL stadium concessions at Detroit’s Ford Field. In 2015, Slows opened for the first time outside Detroit inside the state-of-the-art Grand Rapids Downtown Market. The Grand Rapids Slows blends the best of the two Detroit restaurants: award-winning barbecue, 40 craft beer handles, top-notch bourbon selection as well as catering & carryout. Just like the East side counterpart, Slows Bar Bq Grand Rapids aims to be a neighborhood gathering place, a contributing member of the local business community and an integral part of Grand Rapids life.

“We are incredibly excited and honored to be a sponsor of Grand Rapids FC” said Slows Co-Owner Terry Perrone. “We love this sport. No other fans have this enthusiasm and passion. Minor-league soccer is a true movement. We’ve seen the success of grass-roots soccer on the east side of the state. It’s obvious that the future is very bright here with this team and this city. We hope to be partners with GRFC for many years to come!!”

GRFC President Matt Roberts commented “We are very excited to have Slows Bar BQ as a partner for the 2016 season. They have supported local soccer in both the Detroit and GR markets for years. Just like GRFC, Slows has seen massive growth in a short period of time so we couldn’t be happier to team up with them”.
