Mountain Mike's Pizza, LLC, a leading California-based, family-style pizza chain, has been named the official pizza of the San Francisco 49ers as part of a multi-year agreement beginning with the 2018 season.
As a key element of the San Francisco 49ers partnership, Mountain Mike's Pizza has also been named the presenting sponsor of the 49ers PREP Flag Football Program, a regional community outreach initiative launched by 49ers PREP presented by U.S. Bank in March 2018. The 49ers PREP Flag Football Program presented by Mountain Mike's Pizza is a series of community-based leagues providing a safe and fun introduction to co-ed flag football for children ages 7-14. Offered free of charge to participating communities, the free program is underwritten by the 49ers and run by local community groups throughout the Bay Area and surrounding neighborhoods.
"From one Bay Area original to another, the 49ers are incredibly proud to add Mountain Mike's Pizza as our official pizza sponsor and a presenting partner of our 49ers PREP Flag Football Program," said Brent Schoeb, 49ers Vice President of Corporate Partnerships. "Through this partnership, Mountain Mike's is helping us deliver youth football to the greater Bay Area region."
"Since the opening of our first store in Palo Alto, we have planted deep roots in the Bay Area and are proud to align our brand with the legendary San Francisco 49ers as their official pizza partner," said Chris Britt and Ed St. Geme, Co-CEOs and principal owners of Mountain Mike's Pizza, LLC. "For 40 years, Mountain Mike's has been the pizza of choice for sports fans throughout Northern and Central California. Whether ordering our unique specialty pizzas, pizzas with our famous curly mini pepperoni's, or other tasty products for delivery, carry-out, or dine in from one of our 200 restaurants, Mountain Mike's provides the best game-day eats, big screen TVs, and family-friendly environment for football fans of all ages to cheer on their favorite teams."
"Supporting the communities, we serve has been a core value of the Mountain Mike's brand since day one. We're proud to join the 49ers in making it possible for local youth to benefit from a program that encourages them to be active outdoors and teaches the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork," continued Britt and St. Geme.
This partnership builds upon Mountain Mike's existing Northern California sports integrations. Mountain Mike's new designation, "The Official Pizza of the San Francisco 49ers," will be promoted across a variety of marketing platforms, community events, in-store and in-stadium signage, as well as digital, social, television and radio advertising.
