April 1, 2014, Ottawa – Gabriel Pizza has
become the official pizza of TD Place and the Ottawa Redblacks, Ottawa Fury FC
and Ottawa 67’s.

Gabriel Pizza, which uses the tagline
“Ottawa’s Bigger, Better Pizza,” will be available at concession stands
throughout TD Place at all sporting events, concerts and events.

Founded in 1977 by Michael Hanna, Gabriel
Pizza is a true Ottawa entrepreneurial success story. From humble beginning as
a one-store operation on St. Joseph Boulevard in Orléans, the business has
grown into a regional operation with dozens of locations throughout the city
and in towns across the surrounding region in both Eastern Ontario and the
Outaouais.

“We’re very happy that Gabriel Pizza has
joined our team and that they’re adding TD Place as the latest location for
people to be able to eat their delicious pizza,” said Jeff Hunt, president of
OSEG Sports, in a news release. “Gabriel is a great local business success
story and we’re delighted that they’re becoming a partner with us to grow their
business.”

Research conducted by OSEG suggested not
only that fans expect pizza to be available during an event experience, but
also believe pizza to be an important element of a kid-friendly menu, said the
company in the release. Gabriel Pizza was specifically referenced as the
favourite pizza of the OSEG sports fan-base.
 

The first game at TD Place at Lansdowne
takes place on Friday, July 18, when the Ottawa Redblacks kick off the
inaugural campaign in the Canadian Football League against the Toronto
Argonauts.
