Great news for The Office fans! Chili's has officially lifted its permanent ban on "Scranton, Pennsylvania woman allegedly caused a disturbance during a company awards party". This press release came after Jenna Fisher posted a picture of herself in front of a Chili's and asked fans if she should go in.
Effective immediately, Chili’s® Grill & Bar has removed the longstanding ban on a Scranton, Pennsylvania woman who allegedly caused a disturbance during a company awards party held at a Chili’s near the Pennsylvania town of Scranton.
The woman, Pam Beesly Halpert, received a prestigious award for having the whitest sneakers in the company.
After thanking her shoes and coworkers, the woman declared, “I feel God in this Chili’s tonight.”
"After reviewing the good conduct of Pam, I have decided to lift the now 11-year ban," said Kelli Valade, President of Chili's. "Pam is an inspiration to many and we welcome her with open arms."
The restaurant chain's response generated a small Office reunion on Twitter when several of Fisher's cast-members reacted to the good news!
