April 1 Alert: Don't want to share your food? Boston Pizza cooks-up a protective shield

New product ensures guests can enjoy their favourite menu items all to themselves

MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 1, 2016 /CNW/ - Today, Boston Pizza, Canada's largest casual dining chain, launches the Hey! That's Nacho Food Shield, a revolutionary new product that will forever change the dining experience. Research conducted by Boston Pizza found the majority of guests love shareable menu items, like nachos, but one in five don't want to share with their tablemates. That's why Boston Pizza created the Hey! That's Nacho Food Shield, an original concept designed to protect guests' plates from table reach overs, sneaky side attacks and topping touchers.

Made from sleek, transparent acrylic, the Hey! That's Nacho Food Shield can be placed over any dish and offers protection on all sides from hungry friends, family and teammates. The Hey! That's Nacho Food Shield allows guests to keep their meal all to themselves while still enjoying the company of family and friends.

"Shareable should not equal terrible, which is why we're excited to introduce the Hey! That's Nacho Food Shield," said Steve Silverstone, Executive Vice President, Marketing, Boston Pizza. "We want guests to finally feel comfortable ordering whatever they want, without fear of sacrificing part of their meal to needy tablemates."

The Hey! That's Nacho Food Shield will be available soon at a Boston Pizza location near you. Ask your server for one and never worry about nibblers taking food off your plate again!
