​Winn-Dixie Store Director Tom Seay presented the custom tailgate truck keys to Apopka, Fla. winner Ted Koller, which replaced his truck that was totaled in a recent accident.

One lucky Florida customer received the prize of a lifetime thanks to Winn-Dixie’s and Frank’s RedHot Sweepstakes to win a custom Tailgate Truck.

Apopka, Florida resident Ted Koller was presented with the truck in a special ceremony held on Feb. 6 at Winn-Dixie store No. 2246 in Apopka, Florida. Ted was the lucky winner of a Ford F-150, equipped with a custom grill, a Coleman cooler and chafing dishes, a 42” flat screen, Xbox 360 video game console with games and an automatic tonneau cover.

Store Director Tom Seay presented Koller with the keys to his new truck along with bottles of Frank’s RedHot to enjoy with his family.

Koller was browsing the Internet when he came across the Frank’s RedHot Winn-Dixie Sweepstakes. The news of winning came days after Koller was in a car accident, which totaled his previous truck.

“You just see that truck and you have to enter! I mean, someone has to win it,” said Koller.

When he first heard the good news, Koller didn’t immediately tell his family. Instead, he planned to drive it up to their home to surprise them.

“We were excited for Ted, who’s a local resident and customer, to win the custom Winn-Dixie & Frank’s RedHot Tailgate Truck,” said Seay. “It was a great feeling to present him with the keys and watch him drive off the lot to share the prize with his family.”
