Hunt Brothers Pizza announced the winners of its “25 for 25 Video Contest,” in which they received video submissions from their retail partners detailing the importance of the pizza program to their businesses, families and communities. The majority of Hunt Brothers Pizza retail partners are independently owned small businesses, often in rural America. The contest was a way for Hunt Brothers Pizza to celebrate its 25th anniversary, say thank you to its partners for their shared accomplishments, and show the brand’s commitment to help further the success of its partners.
As a leading pizza brand in the convenience store industry, Hunt Brothers Pizza asked its more than 7,300 retailers to submit a video sharing their Hunt Brothers Pizza story and how the brand has helped them. Hunt Brothers Pizza then selected 25 winners from the submissions—all of which will receive a pizza shoppe upgrade. This upgrade will be customized according to each location’s individual needs and could include new ovens or warmers, new freezers or refrigerators, and even a full pizza shoppe makeover complete with digital menu boards.
“The hundreds of stories we heard from our customers warmed our hearts, and it reaffirmed our dedication to helping our customers grow their business,” says Scott Hunt, CEO of Hunt Brothers Pizza. “The stories reminded us how much Hunt Brothers Pizza means to the many communities we serve, many of which are in small towns. Because of their Hunt Brothers Pizza program, many stores can afford to give back to their communities through pizza fundraising campaigns, local sponsorships and events. We value our customers so much, and we hope that by giving a few of our customers a new pizza shoppe we will show our appreciation for them and further help them support their communities.”
These upgrades aim to bring the 25 winning Hunt Brothers Pizza store partners even greater success in their business—a better, more efficient shoppe but also an overall brighter, more welcoming pizza shoppe to help them better meet the needs of their communities. The unveiling of the revamped pizza shoppes will be celebrated with community grand reopening events at a later date.
