MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (January 24, 2018) - The Myrtle Beach Pelicans are excited to announce a new partnership with Pranzarelli's Pizza. The 2018 season will mark the first in a multiyear partnership between the team and pizzeria.
The classic pizzeria focuses on quality and house-made recipes that include the real Italian meats, fresh vegetables, sauce made in-house, and freshly shredded mozzarella - all on the crispy, but chewy crust.
"We are thrilled to partner with Pranzarelli's Pizza and announce them as the 'Official Pizza of the Pelicans'," stated Pelicans General Manager Ryan Moore. "Starting on Opening Day, April 5th, Pelicans fans will have the opportunity to have an oversized Pranzarelli's slice while watching the future Chicago Cubs."
Pranzarelli's owner Greg Pranzo knows the importance of partnerships when building a brand as he was recently named Myrtle Beach Restaurateur of the Year by the Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association for his work with Wahlburgers.
"Having partners like Pranzarelli's Pizza and Greg allows us to continue to provide the best fan experience in Minor League Baseball," added Moore.
"We hope this pizza elicits childhood memories of sitting around the table with your family on Friday night," said Pranzo. "All of our recipes are made in-house so our pizza is as authentic as it comes. We hope you can build new memories with your family over Pranzarelli's pizza."
Pranzarelli's is located in the Galleria Shopping Center at 9660 North Kings Highway. Hours of operation are Monday to Saturday, 11AM to 10PM, and Sunday from 11AM to 9PM.
Season seat memberships to the Pelicans 20th season are on sale now. For more information about the 2018 season or membership plans, contact the Pelicans Front Office at 843-918-6000.
