"The Official Playoff Headquarters of the Winnipeg Jets" pledges 25,000 slices for the Cup parade
WINNIPEG, April 8, 2019 /CNW/ - With playoff excitement at a fever pitch in the city, Boston Pizza, the Official Playoff Headquarters of the Winnipeg Jets, is pledging 25,000 slices of the "Great Whiteout Pizzas" for the Cup parade if the Jets capture Lord Stanley.
"Winnipeg Jets fans have some of the most passionate supporters in the league and they're hungry for the Cup," said Andrew Shefchyk, Director of Marketing, Boston Pizza, Enright Group. "As Canada's #1 Restaurant and Sports Bar, we want to join Jets fans on their playoff journey and 'Feed the Parade' if the team brings home the Cup."
Boston Pizza is the place to cheer on the Jets this spring. In addition to enjoying big-screen TVs, ice cold beer and 100+ menu favourites, Boston Pizza guests will have the chance to win Pass-to-the-Glass playoff tickets during every Jets home game, where they will be immediately whisked away from the restaurant and into front-row playoff seats at Bell MTS Place.
Boston Pizza will also be taking Winnipeg's world-famous 'Whiteout' to a whole other level throughout the Jets playoff run. All BP restaurants, sports bars and staff will be decked out in the brightest, whitest Jets apparel. Boston Pizza's classic Great White North Pizza is now the "Great Whiteout Pizza" and there will be Jets-themed drinks, including Budweiser limited-edition Whiteout cans, on special every game.
Let's go Jets!
