In celebration of 60 years of hospitality, Howard Johnson is launching a nationwide search for former employees who were once the stars of the brand’s 1960’s ad campaign, “Spotlight On You”, with the hope of bringing them into the orange limelight once more.
The iconic Howard Johnson chain is looking back at the milestones throughout the years: from Howard Johnson’s drugstore ice cream counter— with its infamous 28 flavors— to the opening of the restaurant chain, the first hotel in 1954, and ultimately the expansion of the brand internationally, the Howard Johnson brand has become synonymous with Americana.
Through the end of the year, Howard Johnson is searching for the 14 former hotel and restaurant employees featured in the “Spotlight on You” ads. These former associates will receive a free stay at a Howard Johnson hotel, and may also be invited to participate in an upcoming company ad campaign.
