 “Everyone at the Cincinnati Zoo would like to thank Frisch’s Big Boy,” says Thane Maynard, director of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. “Frisch’s Big Boy is a longtime supporter and sponsor of Frisch’s Discovery Center, an amphitheater in which children and adults see and touch live animals as they learn about caring for them.”

“Frisch’s enjoys a partnership with the Cincinnati Zoo that dates back to the 1970s. We are excited to offer these berry fun items that will help provide educational opportunities and take care of Big Boy’s friend, Fiona,” adds Jason Vaughn, president and CEO of Frisch’s Big Boy.
