Detroit Style Pizza Co. partners with Foody Direct for affordable nationwide overnight shipping – PMQ Pizza Magazine

(Press Release) Detroit, Michigan, October 30, 2013 — Detroit Style Pizza Co. today announced a new partnership with Foody Direct that lets millions of residents in the upper Midwest order Authentic Detroit Style Pizza delivered to their doorsteps overnight for about the price of a tip and delivery fee; and everyone in the continental U.S. will get overnight delivery at a 33 percent savings. The partnership aligns with World Champion Pizza Maker and Detroit Style Pizza Co. President Shawn Randazzo's mission to make sure everyone gets a taste of Authentic Detroit Style Pizza.

By partnering with Foody Direct, Detroit Style Pizza Co. is able to ship Authentic Detroit Style Pizza overnight to residents in Michigan, northwest Ohio, northern Illinois and northeast Illinois for a flat rate of $9.95. All other continental U.S. residents pay just $29.95 for shipping. Previous shipping rates were $45 regardless of location, so the new program reflects a 78 percent savings for regional customers and a 33 percent savings for nationwide customers. That adds up to an average savings of $36.95 per regional mail orders and $16.95 for nationwide orders.

“Detroit Style Pizza Co. is incredibly thrilled to make overnight Authentic Detroit Style Pizza delivery affordable to everyone nationwide,” said Randazzo. “Because our pizza requires special packaging and fast shipping in order to be delivered at the freshest, highest-quality, shipping rates have been a barrier to some customers who want to mail order Authentic Detroit Style Pizza. By partnering with Foody Direct, we're able to reduce shipping rates to the equivalent of tipping your driver and a delivery fee for our regional customers, and we're also able to provide significant savings for our nationwide customers.”

Available for overnight delivery are Detroit Style Pizza Co.'s Tangy BBQ Chicken Pizza, which was named World's Best Pizza at the 2012 International Pizza Expo; Margarita in the “D” Pizza, which features a blend of fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, roasted garlic and red onions, then finished with a dusting of sea salt. Other available pizzas include Meat Supreme, Pepperoni, Cheese, and Veggie. All orders are shipped in packs of three pizzas placed in special Arctic Foil and Ice Bricks packaging so the pizzas are delivered fresh.

Authentic Detroit Style Pizza features a thick crust that is light and airy on the inside, crispy on the outside. A layer of pepperoni is lined on the dough (except for cheese-only pizzas) and covered with a blend of brick and mozzarella cheeses that caramelize to the crust when baked. Finally, Detroit Style Pizza Co.'s signature red sauce is ladled on top, which gives the style the nicknames “red top pizza” and “upside down pizza.” Gluten-free versions are available for each Detroit Style Pizza Co. pizza. Three-pizza packs are priced between $39 and $49.

The location-based shipping prices are dependent on which areas can be reached via UPS Ground (regional delivery) and which areas are reached via UPS Next Day Air Saver (nationwide delivery).
