“We know people are eager for fun experiences this summer, especially after a year and a half of deferred plans,” said Kristin Kroepfl, Vice President and CMO of Quaker Foods North America. “Now that people are starting to return to their normal routines, we want to show up for Crunch fans in a fun way, bringing adventure to the breakfast table and beyond. What better way to do that than by letting them stay inside the Cap’n’s home away from home and ‘Be the Cap’n’ for a few nights.”
Docked in Boston, a stay at The Cap’n’s Quarters is more than a beautiful oasis on water – it’s an opportunity to learn more about the man behind the iconic Crunch. Guests will get an exclusive look at the Cap’n’s personal style – beach and nautical vibes with a Crunch flare – along with some of his most cherished keepsakes and access to an abundant supply of Cap’n Crunch. Apart from his impeccable interior design taste, each room also contains small treasures about the Cap’n, from his travels on his beloved S.S. Guppy to his high school fame as a rowing champion.
Guests of The Cap’n’s Quarters will also receive a welcome pack with items handpicked by the Cap’n himself, including his favorite bath robe and bath products. They can enjoy lounging on the front deck, which is decorated with his perfectly pruned Crunch Berry bushes – exclusively sourced from Crunch Island – and can be illuminated in the evening with whimsical Crunch Berry lights.
“After being invited to my fair share of breakfast tables over the years, it’s time I opened my doors to my amazing Crunch fans,” said Cap’n Crunch. “My hope is that whoever wins a stay at The Cap’n’s Quarters is able to relax, check out Boston’s rich boating culture – it’s a vibe – and enjoy learning a thing or two about me, like why they used to call me ‘Competitive Cap’n!'”
