A Great Inning

Hot Stuff Foods and Lettieri’s say they aren’t wasting any time joining forces to create a winning foodservice program.

Hot Stuff Foods CEO John Fontana and Lettieri’s have announced new marketing initiatives on the companies’ newest items: Hot Stuff’s Big Stuff Pizza; Hot Stuff’s new Take & Bake Pizza; and Lettieri’s new Self-Rising Pizza.

“The record-setting size and big bold taste of the Big Stuff Pizza is making retailers across the country say ‘Wow!’” Fontana said. “Big Stuff Pizza is literally the largest pizza of any national chain in America, offering customers over 5 square feet of pizza, measuring 15 inches wide and 4 feet long and weighing close to 15 pounds.

“Big Stuff is ideal for ‘wowing’ hearty appetites at football parties, youth sports events, birthdays, family get-togethers and all other gathering of pizza lovers,” he said.

“The Take & Bake component of Hot Stuff’s extensive food solutions program is an excellent compliment to the dinner day-part offering, especially for retailers looking to take advantage of the national take & bake trend,” Fontana said. “Retailers can now provide customers with yet another fast and convenient option for dinner.

Hot Stuff’s Take & Bake Pizza is made while consumers wait, then taken home to bake fresh in the oven. Popular pre-made Take & Bake Pizza toppings can also be available for grab-n-go, while Hot Stuff also supports its foodservice programs with “superior marketing and ongoing hands-on support,” Fontana said.

“Now we can serve retailers regardless of their size,” said John Barber, Hot Stuff Foods executive vice president of development. “Lettieri’s new self-rising pizza rounds out our triple play and gives retailers everywhere the opportunity to merchandize both a quality take-and-bake and pizza-by-the-slice pizza program with minimal space requirements.

Lettieri’s 14-inch pizza is available exclusively through distributors and is available in five varieties, including Supreme, Pepperoni, Sausage & Pepperoni, 4-Cheese and Breakfast.
