Waffle House tabs LPGA’s Pancake for partnership made in heaven

In a rather amusing twist, the LPGA’s Brooke Pancake has announced Waffle House as her newest sponsor.

Pancake, a former All-American at Alabama, will visit Waffle House restaurants throughout the country while traveling on the LPGA and will carry the restaurant chain’s logo on her bag.

‘Growing up in Chattanooga, I’ve always been a Waffle House fan,’ Brooke Pancake says. 

"Growing up in Chattanooga, I’ve always been a Waffle House fan," Pancake said in a release. "And to be quite honest, I prefer waffles over pancakes anyway."

Pancake, in her third year on the LPGA, married former UT-Chattanooga player Derek Rende one year ago but kept her maiden name. She will be serving waffle samples at the CHASE54 booth during the PGA Merchandise Show from 9 to 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

‘This will be the first time that the Waffle Nation will be cheering for a Pancake,’ said Walt Ehmer, Waffle House’s president and chief executive officer.

Sounds like a perfect partnership.
