The ONE Group Marks Successful Hospitality Events at Super Bowl XLIX and Sundance Film Festival

Marquee events bring the STK concept to new markets, expanding brand awareness and supporting company growth

NEW YORK-- The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. (“The ONE Group”) (OTCQB:STKS), today announced the Company recently completed successful offsite events at two high-profile occasions: Super Bowl XLIX and the Sundance Film Festival. The ONE Group’s participation in both events represents a natural expansion of its growing hospitality business beyond just its venues, as well as the continued evolution of The ONE Group and STK Restaurant brands.

“We are thrilled to see the hospitality arm of our business continue to evolve in new ways as demand for the STK/TOG experience expands beyond our venues,” said Jonathan Segal, CEO, The ONE Group. “Opportunities such as the Super Bowl and Sundance not only underscore that we are a partner of choice, but also provide another way for us to be introducing the STK/TOG brand to new consumers across the country. With STK Miami slated to reopen in the first quarter, and STK Rebel Denver and STK Orlando set to open later in the year, the successful completion of these recent events further adds to our growth momentum and excitement for 2015.”

During Super Bowl weekend, The ONE Group created a customized experience by catering the Fifth Annual DIRECTV’s Super Saturday Night, an invitation-only event co-hosted by Mark Cuban’s AXS TV and Michael Strahan, held inside DIRECTV’s Super Fan Stadium in Glendale, AZ. The event was one of the most sought after tickets of the weekend, and featured a performance by pop star Rihanna.

At the Sundance Film Festival, The ONE Group kicked off opening weekend with its annual “For ONE Night Only” party at Rock & Reilly’s in Park City. In addition, its pop-up KIA Supper Suite by STK, offered film producers, celebrities and media the elements of STK that they know and love—an innovative menu and high-energy experience—in a setting outside of the traditional, brick-and-mortar STK restaurant or other The ONE Group venue.
