Nancy's Pizza Introduces "Da Ditka Pizza" to Menu in Celebration of National Pizza Month

Da Delicious Pizza Features Hearty Helpings of Cheese, Meatballs, Pepperoni, Onion and Green Peppers Named After Sports Icon and Nancy's Pizza Spokesman, Mike Ditka

CHICAGO, IL - (Marketwired - Oct 9, 2014) - In honor of National Pizza Month in October, Nancy's Pizza, in collaboration with Mike Ditka, famed coach, football player and television commentator, is introducing a pizza representing two Chicago Legends -- "Da Ditka Pizza." Da Ditka Pizza will feature hearty helpings of cheese, meatballs, pepperoni, onions and green peppers.

"I hope you're hungry because 'Da Ditka Pizza' is a fully loaded pie that won't disappoint," said Mike Ditka. "When it comes to pizza, Nancy's Pizza is the expert. When it comes to football, I'd like to think sometimes I am the expert. Put it all together and we got ourselves the best of both worlds: pizza and football."

The new Ditka Pizza will be available each year for a limited time during football season kicking off October 1 through Super Bowl Sunday. Da Ditka Pizza will be available in thin crust or the original stuffed pizza and will be offered at all Nancy's Pizza locations in Illinois, Georgia and California. Each box of Ditka Pizza will feature a unique Ditka sticker and branding right on the pizza box.

"National Pizza Month is such a perfect time to introduce our newest menu item and celebrate our ongoing relationship with Mike Ditka," said Dave Howey, president of Chicago Franchise Systems, Inc. "Da Ditka Pizza is the perfect blend of two Chicago favorites, Nancy's Pizza and Mike Ditka."

The franchise is endorsed by Mike Ditka, former pro football player, coach and TV commentator, who is supporting Nancy's Pizza as its official spokesperson. "The Coach" is taking an active role in the company's nationwide expansion helping scout new locations, create new menu items and support their marketing efforts.
