It's always good news to hear about the Nashville Predators striking up another corporate partnership, but when it also involves free pizza for fans attending a game, that warrants special attention! A new sponsorship from Hunt Brothers Pizza that could mean free pizza for a whole section or row at Bridgestone Arena, starting tonight vs. St. Louis.
The team's press release follows after the jump with all the details...
The Nashville Predators and Hunt Brothers® Pizza, the nation's largest brand of made-to-order pizza in the convenience store industry, today announced a corporate partnership with the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena to be the official pizza vendor. With more than 6,000 store locations in 28 states, Hunt Brothers® Pizza's record of success and growth in various markets makes the company a strong partner for both the team and the arena.
Through this partnership, Hunt Brothers® Pizza will be served at five concession stands throughout the arena including the main entrance of the food court and Club Level. Pizza types include classic cheese, pepperoni and veggie.
"As a company headquartered in Nashville, Hunt Brothers® Pizza is excited to offer our great tasting pizzas to hockey fans and concert attendees," said Scott Hunt, chief executive officer of Hunt Brothers® Pizza. "This strategic partnership will help us support and engage the local communities within the Nashville area."
Hunt Brothers® Pizza will serve its Hunk A Pizza®, a quarter of a 12-inch pizza, and whole 12-inch pizzas at all Predators games and at all Bridgestone Arena events-including the CMA Awards, concerts and other major events. The partnership will kick off this Thursday, October 28 when the Nashville Predators face off against the St. Louis Blues.
"The Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena strive to offer our patrons quality food options, especially those at a local level," said Chris Parker, Executive Vice President and Chief Sales Officer for Nashville Predators/Bridgestone Arena. "Hunt Brothers® Pizza is locally owned and has an excellent reputation for fresh tasting pizza - offering this company's quality pizza will translate into increased food sales for Bridgestone Arena. Hunt Brothers is another Nashville-based, national company which sees the value in a strong partnership with the home town Predators."
Additional benefits of this partnership include recognition on Bridgestone Arena's MegaTron with segments such as Hunt Brothers® Pizza Predators player profiles and in-game contests where a lucky section or row will receive free pizzas.
