The 365 Pizza Box Challenge!

Pizza takeout, curbside and delivery service is booming and represents the largest market share of pizza industry revenue. This year we’re introducing the Pizza Expo 365 Pizza Box Challenge. We are in search of the world’s ultimate pizza box. If you think you’ve got the best of the best, now’s your chance to prove it. Is your box part of your success story? What sets your box apart from your competition? Is it an integral part of your marketing plan? How does it help drive sales? Innovative operators continue to push the envelope in search of a better pizza box, now’s your chance.

Here are a few trends:

  • Promoting health and other nutritional benefits of your pizza and other menu items, such as using ingredients that are locally sourced, organic or that have other healthy qualities.
  • Incorporating QR codes into artwork that will direct your customers to a landing page where they can access coupons, specials, new products, giveaways, social media and more.
  • Emphasize that your pizza box is environmentally friendly and made of recyclable materials.
  • Use your pizza box to tell your story or emphasize menu items, charitable causes and/or community involvement.
