Pizza Factory has made a name for itself as one of the most community focused businesses in each of its markets. To this point, the brand recently sponsored the San Jose Sharks “Hockey is for Everyone” Night in cooperation with You Can Play, an NHL- supported non-profit organization that works to ensure the safety and inclusion of all in sports including LGBTQ athletes, coaches, and fans.
Hockey is for Everyone™ uses the game of hockey – and the National Hockey League’s global influence – to drive positive social change and foster more inclusive communities. The NHL and San Jose Sharks support any teammate, coach or fan who brings heart, energy and passion to the rink and believe all hockey programs – from professionals to youth organizations – should provide a safe, positive and inclusive environment for players and families regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation and socio-economic status.
An official partner, Pizza Factory is the exclusive pizza provider at Sharks’ events and at the SAP Center in San Jose. 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 national 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.
