Stripes Celebrates Día de los Muertos With Commemorative Cups

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas —Stripes Convenience Stores will be celebrating Día de los Muertos, a Mexican holiday that takes place on November 2, with a release of two limited-edition Dia de los Muertos commemorative cups available in now.

Stripes and Coca-Cola have partnered to launch their first-ever Dia de los Muertos commemorative cups, which are exclusive to Stripes convenience stores throughout Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.

The cups are priced $2.99, and include the first fill free.

Each cup was created by two aspiring young Texas artists; Elisa Rector, a 29-year-old South Texas native who specializes in Día de los Muertos art, and 24-year-old Christian Lain, a professional tattoo artist who lives in Corpus Christi.

Both artists commissioned by Stripes Stores and Coca-Cola were given the creative freedom to design their own interpretation of the Companies’ commemorative Día de Los Muertos cup. Rector painted an original piece and drew her inspiration from her South Texas roots using acrylic paint. Lain used watercolors to design his original, pulling from the culture of calling South Texas his home. Each artist was asked to incorporate the Stripes stores and Coca-Cola logo on their design.

Rector designed the turquoise cup with the “Dia de lose Muertos” couple, and Lain designed the charcoal tumbler with a traditional calavera design.

Customers interested in a chance to win a 2015 Limited-Edition Día de Los Muertos commemorative cup must submit their best Día de los Muertos face painting photo through a comment on the Stripes Facebook page starting October 30. The company will chose winners at random, to be announced on November 2.

Stripes operates more than 700 convenience stores in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Restaurant service is available in more than 440 of its stores, primarily under the proprietary Laredo Taco Co. brand.
