Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose to team with Giordano's
Glen Ellyn, IL
Chicago Bulls MVP point guard Derrick Rose has teamed up with Giordano's Famous Stuffed Pizza as an equity owner and new national spokesperson of the pizza company.
According to a press release, beginning later in September, Rose will appear in Giordano’s advertising, consumer promotions and charitable efforts as the company broadens its national profile.
Through this new relationship, he will play a role in helping bring the Giordano’s experience to more consumers as the company plans to launch an expansive new menu later this fall featuring a wide variety of stuffed and thin crust pizzas, as well as inventive new salads, sandwiches, pastas and desserts.
“I’m proud to call Chicago my hometown and I’ve grown up with my family eating Giordano’s pizza,” Rose said in the press release. “I’ve always loved Giordano’s, so this was a uniquely personal opportunity for me.”
In addition to various promotions featuring Rose, sports fans might even get a chance to spot him around town at one of Giordano’s Chicagoland locations as Rose plans to visit the various restaurants.
“I’ve always been a big fan of their stuffed pizzas,” Rose added. “I’m working right now on my own signature pizza that we plan to introduce very soon. I’m actually pretty good in the kitchen.”
Giordano's is also located locally in Glen Ellyn, Westchester, Oak Brook and Downers Grove.
