J.P. Wiser's wants Canadians to use the gift of time to come together with friends
TORONTO, Feb. 18, 2020 /CNW/ - "Let's grab drinks soon?" is something often said, but life tends to get in the way. The fact is, there are only 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year, but once every four years we get the gift of time - and 2020 is that year. To encourage Canadians to spend more quality time with friends this Leap Year, J.P. Wiser's and Boston Pizza are partnering to give away 10,000 free pizzas at Boston Pizza locations across Canada on Leap Day.
J.P. Wiser's conducted a proprietary survey in 2019 with 900 respondents that showed that 93 percent of Canadians wish they could see their friends more often. In fact, 81 percent of men and 87 percent of women feel happier after seeing an old friend. With J.P. Wiser's Old Fashioned on special for $6 and 10,000 free pizzas available, all that's left to do is say, "Let's grab a drink and pizza on Leap Day at Boston Pizza".
"J.P. Wiser's has identified time as one of the key barriers to getting together with friends and making "Drinks Soon?" happen," says Rebecca Lyttle, Assistant Brand Manager, J.P. Wiser's. "We want to celebrate the gift of the 24 additional hours we have this Leap Year and encourage friends to get together through our partnership with Boston Pizza."
"As Canada's pizza leader, we know that no food brings people together quite like pizza does," Peter Blackwell, SVP Marketing & Communications, Boston Pizza International Inc.. "We are thrilled to partner with J.P. Wiser's to bring friends together on Leap Day and reward guests with some great offerings."
