Already a winner with its delicious hand-tossed pizzas and a significant commitment to local communities, the Pizza Factory franchise scores big again by becoming the official pizza of the NHL team, the San Jose Sharks.
Through the partnership, Pizza Factory will be the exclusive pizza to be served at Sharks’ events and at the SAP Center in San Jose, for the term of the agreement. This marketing venture, which began in September 2017, means a greater opportunity for the public to taste high-quality pizza and appreciate Pizza Factory’s slogan, “We toss ‘em, they’re awesome.”
The joint venture also gives the Pizza Factory franchise a nat
ional platform for its community outreach efforts, including its popular “No Bully Zone” program. Community involvement is an operating cornerstone of Pizza Factory’s business philosophy. The pizza franchise will host a special Game Night every season to increase awareness of its programs and to continue to work on fostering inclusive communities.
Pizza Factory’s president and CEO Mary Jane Riva is thrilled about the partnership. “The San Jose Sharks, who have fans across the country, have initiatives and values that align well with ours,” she said. “We pride ourselves on being involved in the communities we serve, and look forward to propelling our reach forward with the help of the Sharks’ national presence. Our slogan is ‘We toss ‘em, they’re awesome’ and we’re excited for even more fans and SAP Center visitors to experience this sentiment and learn what we’re all about.”
Pizza Factory’s impressive community investment and partnerships have won praise from its customers and media channels as well. A recent Sierra Star feature story touched on the highlights of the Sharks partnership giving the pizza franchise an added community boost.
