As an official partner, Gabriel will also lend financial and marketing support to Ottawa 2017 with the official logo of the celebration garnishing the tops of pizza boxes circulated to all locations, the locally owned and operated chain said in a news release.
Gabriel marked its own 40th birthday on March 7.
“Gabriel Pizza has been a mainstay of Ottawa’s food culture and a great community partner to many organizations for four decades, and we’re delighted that they’re joining us to deliver a year of celebrations for residents and visitors alike,” said Mayor Jim Watson.
“For 40 years, Gabriel Pizza has been committed to the Ottawa community. Celebrating our anniversaries together is a natural fit. It just isn’t a proper party without pizza and we will be announcing several exciting plans this year,” said George Hanna, Gabriel Pizza's president.
“We’re very happy to work with Gabriel Pizza to spread the word about the exciting celebrations taking place in Ottawa throughout the year. In addition to delivering visibility for the festivities right to the doors of their customers, Gabriel Pizza will support the Ottawa 2017 volunteer program, a crucial pillar in the success of the celebrations,” said Guy Laflamme, executive director of the Ottawa 2017 Bureau.
Organizers expect a record number of visitors to Ottawa in 2017 to celebrate Canada’s 150th.
