July 12, 2015 - BUFFALO, NY - For the fifth year in a row, guests at the Taste of Buffalo presented by Tops could text a vote for their favorite food item and help select AT&T's Fan Favorite Food. Thousands of votes were cast and this year's winner is the Seafood Cioppino from Templeton Landing.
"Thanks to the generous support of AT&T, the official wireless sponsor of the Taste, festivalgoers were once again able to easily text a vote for a favorite food item," said Laura Jacobs, 2015 Taste chair. "In addition, participating Taste restaurants also got into the competitive spirit by reminding festivalgoers to vote!"
Voting took place throughout the two-day event, Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, July 12. Item numbers and texting information were available at each restaurant and in the festival guide.
"AT&T was thrilled to be part of Taste of Buffalo again this year and to be able to bring back the very popular 'Fan Favorite' activity to the festival," said Thomas DeVito, president and general manager AT&T New York/New Jersey. "We were so pleased with the response by attendees who texted their vote for their favorite food or in some cases tweeted or Instagramed their photos to screens at the Festival using #TasteofBuffalo."
