US-based restaurant chain Zeeks Pizza has established a partnership with Jones Soda to serve as its official beverage partner across 16 locations.
As part of the deal, Jones Soda will offer a range of beverages, including Jones Cane Sugar Fountain Soda, Jones Cane Sugar in 12oz cans, and Lemoncocco.
This deal will remove all Coca-Cola products from its restaurant and delivery services in every location across western Washington.
Jones Soda CEO Jennifer Cue said: “Zeeks shared an emphasis on quality, taste, and meaningful experiences provide a complementary relationship that makes perfect sense for a brand like Jones.
“As we join the ranks of other quality-minded, up-and-coming chains in the Northwest, such as Great State Burgers, Sizzle Pie Pizza, and Katsu Burger to name a few, we are thrilled to now make our craft portfolio available at such a fun, iconic, local and fast growing chain like Zeeks.”
Zeeks Pizza president Dan Black said: “Partnering with a like-mined, authentic and iconic brand like Jones Soda is an important milestone for Zeeks as we aim to provide more local products that have integrity and resonate well with our customers.”
In addition, the pizza chain has signed a new contract with Boxed Water Is Better to replace Dasani Water and its plastic bottles.
The company has now started the transition and will complete the process at all locations in May this year.
Zeeks president Dan Black said: “1,500 plastic bottles are produced every second, leading to eight million tons of plastic going into our oceans and landfills per year.
“Most of our customers and employees have an outdoor-oriented lifestyle as well and they will be stoked by this news. Boxed Water aligns perfectly with our community’s passion for the outdoors.”
