Pizza Factory Hits Home Run Partnership with Spokane Indians

 National Pizzeria Franchise Joins Minor League Baseball Team to Combat Bullying

 OAKHURST, Calif. – Pizza Factory, known for its great-tasting hand-tossed pizzas and its commitment to community involvement, announced today its partnership with the Spokane Indians of Minor League Baseball (MiLB) to put an end to bullying.

One of Pizza Factory’s most iconic initiatives is its “No Bully Zone”—a brand wide program that emphasizes the importance of inclusion and tolerance. Through the program, the company works to combat bullying by placing anti-bullying messaging on uniforms and pizza boxes and sharing parenting tips on napkins. Plus, Pizza Factory CEO Mary Jane Riva personally travels to different Pizza Factory markets, visiting elementary schools to present them with “Buddy Benches” and to speak to the importance of friendship when the kids are at an impressionable age.

With this partnership, Pizza Factory will be joining forces with the Spokane Indians to further elevate the “No Bully Zone” program at Avista Stadium and engage communities to raise awareness about bullying and create a bully-free atmosphere.

“The Indians, who have fans across the region, have values and a strong moral compass that align perfectly with our goals,” said Mary Jane Riva, CEO of Pizza Factory, which has more than 100 locations throughout the country. “We pride ourselves on being involved in the communities we serve, and look forward to propelling our anti-bullying message forward with the help of the Indians’ local presence. Together we can reach the masses with love and stop bullying in its tracks.”

On August 14, the Spokane Indians and Pizza Factory installed the first “No Bully Zone” bench at Avista Stadium in the Kids Zone. The bench will be the first of many that will be placed throughout the ballpark in future seasons.

“Being a family gathering place in the community, and serving thousands of children during the summer, we’re proud to support this campaign,” said Spokane Indians Senior Vice President Otto Klein. “We want to create a safe environment at all times for kids and adults.”
