Pizza Delivery Returns to Schools
According to a recent story in the Wichita Eagle, students in Wichita will now be getting pizza back one day a week, courtesy of Domino's or Pizza Hut, which will supply pizzas that are rich in whole grains in order to meet nutritional guidelines.
Have you checked with your local schools to ask about delivery to students? Do you offer, or could you create, whole-grain pizza crusts that would meet nutritional guidelines if it meant a large audience of students for your product one day a week?
If they don't have any opportunities for the cafeteria, offer your pizzas for PTA meetings, student reward pizza parties, athletic team pizza parties, gift certificate fundraisers, pizza night fundraisers, and more. Show the school the many ways that you can help them and they will be happy to help you, too.
My goal at The Pizza Insider is to give you the inside scoop on the latest trends, marketing tactics and technology so that you're always one step ahead of the competition! I've been a part of the pizza industry since 2007, first as the editor-in-chief, and now as the editor-at-large at PMQ Pizza Magazine. My first pizza book, Pizza: A Slice of American History, was just released; find out more here.
