Fox Restaurant Concepts Launches Partnership with the Valley’s NBA Star, Deandre Ayton

This NBA season, Fox Restaurant Concepts teamed up with the Valley’s star center, Deandre Ayton, and his family, to bring fans the ultimate (& most delicious) partnership – one rooted in food, family, and heart. Starting Nov. 16, guests can enjoy the dish at The Henry and Culinary Dropout locations in Arizona, as well as participate in social media giveaways.

The Fox Restaurant Concepts culinary team worked hand-in-hand with Deandre’s talented mother, Andrea Ayton. Hailing from Jamaica, Andrea is a skilled cook, and with children born in the Bahamas, she infuses her family’s Caribbean roots into every dish. She’s passionate about bringing people together with big meals that are full of love and lots of flavor.

Andrea’s Caribbean Sea Bass featuring jerk-spiced rice, sofrito, pigeon peas, coconut lime slaw and mango preserve was born out of this passion. With each meal purchased, 10% of sales will be donated to Helping Hands for Single Moms, a non-profit organization with a mission to assist low-income, single-mother families as their mother attains a post-secondary education, financial independence and positive family legacy.

“For me, there’s no better place to celebrate life’s everyday occasions than at a Fox Restaurant, because I know I can always count on there being delicious food with the perfect balance between healthy and flavorful,” said Deandre Ayton. “For my family and I, feeding people is how we show love. It was an honor to collaborate with my mom on this campaign, not only to bring a piece of home to fans, but also to give back to an organization whose mission means so much to both of us.”

“We are honored that Deandre Ayton is joining his mother, Andrea, a strong advocate of providing college education for single mothers, for this fundraising collaboration with Fox Restaurant Concepts,” said Helping Hands for Single Moms Founder and CEO Chris Coffman. “Food connects communities, and the sharing of cuisine furthers the opportunity for conversation and awareness of meaningful missions including that of Helping Hands for Single Moms.”

“We are excited to be able to give back to our community in such a meaningful partnership with Deandre Ayton and Helping Hands for Single Moms, both who have done so much good for Arizona,” said Fox Restaurant Concepts founder, Sam Fox. “We connected with Deandre over a shared love of food and family, and we hope our guests really enjoy this special dish and keep coming back for more.”

Andrea’s Caribbean Sea Bass is now available to order at The Henry in Phoenix, a stone’s throw away from the Phoenix Suns practice facility, and all Culinary Dropout locations in Arizona (Downtown Gilbert, Downtown Tempe, North Central Phoenix, Scottsdale Quarter, Old Town Scottsdale, and Tucson).
