Nassau, Bahamas - Señor Frogs turned 10 years old today, February 7, and celebrated the milestone the by breaking a Guinness Record with the Longest Ever Domino Drop Shot.

The Bahamas Prime Minister's wife, Mrs. Bernadette Christie was on hand to watch the feat.

Just hours before a huge 'thank you' party for stakeholders and loyal customers, a select team of staff from the Mexican-themed franchise successfully broke the Guinness World Record – putting Nassau on the map as the site of the Longest Ever Domino Drop Shot."

The current record was set on December 7, 2012 by Zheng Wen in Beijing, China, who successfully toppled 2013 shots, and there was also an unofficial record set in Australia, not sanctioned by Guinness, of 3024 shots.

Señor Frogs said the
attempt was officially accredited by Guinness World Records, and took place along the Prince George Wharf, where tourists and locals gathered to watch and celebrate history being made.

A special-made track, bristling with thousands of half-full beer mugs, wound  its way along Nassau Harbour. Balanced delicately atop each was a shot forming an unbroken chain.

To start the first shot is pushed into the first mug, and itl set off a chain reaction of cascading glasses and a record number of drop shots.

The idea, according to Señor Frogs manager Arturo Salas, was to do something spectacular to commemorate the relationship between the franchise and the Bahamas.

“Ten years is a great anniversary for us,” he said. “We are very thankful to the people of the Bahamas for the way we have been welcomed here.

“We have made many friends and valued customers over the last decade and wanted to do something special."

“We want this record to last as a long time, as a monument to the great bond between Señor Frogs and the Bahamian people.”
