Published

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Performance Food Group Company (PFG) (NYSE: PFGC) and GPM Investments, LLC (GPM), a subsidiary of ARKO Corp. (Nasdaq: ARKO), a Fortune 500 company and one of the largest convenience store operators in the United States, have partnered to launch a premium 12” pizza offering for the low price of $4.99 for enrolled fas REWARDS® members that is now available at more than 1,000 GPM locations.

Leveraging the expertise and quality of PFG company products, the pizza is now available frozen to take-and-bake in more than 1,000 GPM stores, and hot to customers in more than 200 stores. It is garnished with a hearty sauce blended from 100 percent California vine-ripened tomatoes and Wisconsin-made, whole milk mozzarella cheese with no preservatives layered on a made-from-scratch seasoned pizza crust. The pizzas are available as a hearty cheese or topped with savory pepperoni. The fresh ingredients result in an authentic, Italian-style taste, texture, and appearance.

"We have worked to make a premium, high quality, high value pizza for our customers, and we were able to find that through our partnership with Core-Mark and the PFG product offerings,” said Mike Bloom, Executive Vice President, Chief Merchandising and Marketing Officer, GPM Investments, LLC. “We believe that this highly relevant offering will be appreciated by our customers.”

The $4.99 pizza will be available for enrolled fas REWARDS members, or $7.99 to unenrolled customers. GPM has partnered with Pepsi® to offer customers an ideal complement to their meals through a co-branded launch.

“GPM has been a highly valued customer for more than a decade at Core-Mark and we’re pleased to extend our relationship with PFG to help them meet their objectives for this exciting launch,” said Chris Boughton, Director of National Accounts, Core-Mark. “From the Alive and Kickin’ Pizza Crust base to the robust sauce and premium ingredients, we are proud to distribute this delicious pizza at a great value.”

The fas REWARDS app is available to download on Apple or Android devices and is available at fasrewards.com.
