Welcoming Groupon to the Team

Here at PMQ, we talk and think and write a lot about the U.S. Pizza Team. For us, it represents everything we love about pizzaioli and the pizza industry—the energy, the big-hearted warmth and earthy humor, the flair for innovation and, paradoxically, the passion for tradition. And the pizzas themselves—mamma mia, those pizzas!

For a decade and a half, team members have spread goodwill and scrumptiousness around the world, appearing on national TV, slinging dough for Regis and Kelly, marching in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Little kids stop in their tracks and marvel, slack-jawed, at our dough spinners’ deft moves. Members of the press can’t get enough of their exquisitely tasty artisan pizzas prepared with black truffles, sopressata, quail eggs—I could go on and on, but I’m making myself hungry, and it’s only 10 a.m.

Over the years, many wonderful sponsors have given generously to support the team in its endeavors, and we owe them a huge debt of gratitude. Now we’re thrilled to welcome our first title sponsor, Groupon, whose name will heretofore grace the team’s logo and whose support, we believe, will help raise the team’s public profile and carry it to an entirely new level.

With the backing of this highly respected global brand, the Groupon U.S. Pizza Team will soon become a name that will resonate with the public. We also intend to expand our membership and attract even more talented pizza makers and dough spinning “pizzathletes” to qualifying events and international competitions.

We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Groupon to the PMQ pizza family. You’ll be hearing a lot about the Groupon U.S. Pizza Team in the next year! Come and take part in this new era, and help us make positive headlines in your town and all over the nation!
