Fast Casual Pizza Originator to Bring Fresh, Delicious Menu Items Directly to Customers
In today’s fast-paced world, fresh and convenient are not often paired together. To fill this void, Your Pie, the originator of the down-the-line pizza concept, is excited to announce the launch of a new catering program. Beginning this spring, the brand will cater its fresh, delicious menu items directly to its customers’ doors for the first time.
“We are thrilled to announce a new level of innovative service to our loyal guests,” said Drew French, founder of Your Pie. “Through our catering program, we are able to highlight all of our flavor profiles, including our new Panini options and fan-favorite pizzas, while also increasing Your Pie’s visibility in our local communities. Whether it’s for a luncheon meeting, Super Bowl party or a birthday celebration, our customers will be able to get a taste of Your Pie’s unmatched quality and seasonal ingredients with a convenience that can’t be beat.”
The catering program was introduced across Your Pie’s locations nationwide as a way for local owners to become even more involved in the communities they serve. A strong catering program will allow each Your Pie location to increase its visibility to new customers, while offering a new type of convenience to loyal customers. Mobilizing Your Pie will allow the brand to become more accessible, positioning them as stronger leaders in the pizza segment.
“Each of our restaurants is involved in its local community, and we want to up our game as a community partner,” said French. “We are committed to constantly growing and improving our brand’s impact, and the new catering program will allow us to provide both convenience and to introduce our unique menu offerings to people who may not have had our amazing food yet.”
In addition to offering the brand’s classic favorites, the catering menu highlights a new selection of cold panini options, perfect for lunches or parties and designed to satiate a myriad of flavor cravings. Customers will be excited to find items like the Caprese Panini, featuring fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil and garlic or the Nonno’s Italian Panini, filled with sliced ham, salami and pepperoni all topped with fresh provolone, spinach, tomatoes, red onions and served with a balsamic vinaigrette. Other new menu offerings customized for catering include a selection of large salads and the customers can choose to round out the meal with a brownie platter. For those looking to personalize even further, the catering menu also features a Box Lunch option. Customers can choose from the new cold panini menu, and each meal comes packaged with kettle-cooked chips, half of a brownie and a drink. Interested customers can simply call their local Your Pie location, and an experienced team member will make sure all of their catering needs are met.
The catering launch is coming at a time when Your Pie is experiencing impressive growth system-wide. Your Pie celebrated its strongest year ever in 2016, and has its sights set on an even bigger 2017. With more than more than 40 open locations, and 50 more in the development pipeline, the catering program is another innovative addition to the down-the-line concept allowing the brand to continue as a leader in the expanding QSR pizza segment.
“From the beginning, we have been committed to providing customers with amazing taste with a focus on fresh ingredients,” said French. “Even now, as we are growing at a rapid pace, amazing taste remains a top priority. Our loyal customers will always be top of mind, and our catering program is expected to bring a new level of convenience to their lives.”
