Mountain Mike’s Pizza, a leading California-based family-style pizza chain for over 45 years, known for its legendary crispy, curly pepperonis, Mountain-sized pizzas, dough made fresh daily, and toppings to the edge, is  proud to sponsor Angels Baseball for a third consecutive season. Mountain Mike’s will be bringing back its popular Shutout Challenge as an Official Pizza Partner of Angels Baseball. Throughout the 2024 regular season, every time the Angels shut out an opponent, Mountain Rewards app members can claim a free mini one-topping pizza the following day at any of Mountain Mike’s 18 locations throughout Orange County and the Inland Empire. 

“For nearly 50 years, Mountain Mike’s has delighted sports fans, Little League teams, booster clubs and more with ‘Pizza the Way It Oughta Be!’ Our Shutout Challenge partnership with Angels Baseball has allowed us to make team wins even more exciting for the club’s pizza-loving fans,” says Jim Metevier, CEO of Mountain Mike’s Pizza. “As Southern California residents and Official Pizza Partners, we are rooting for the Angels to have a fantastic season – with many shutouts – so our local Angels fans can experience ‘Pizza the Way It Oughta Be!’” 

Mountain Mike’s Pizza became An Official Pizza Partner of Angels Baseball in 2022 and has successfully deepened its relationship with the team and its devoted fans throughout the last two seasons. In 2023, Mountain Mike’s gave away nearly 3,000 free mini pizzas to Angels fans via the Shutout Challenge and increased transacting loyalty members by 13%. Mountain Mike’s Pizza was also a proud sponsor of the 2023 Homerun Heroes program, where 20 sixth-grade students from Anaheim City School District were recognized for excellence in the classroom and their commitment to community service. The family-style pizza chain contributed to several other impactful community events, including the Angels Baseball Foundation Kids Holiday Party, where Mountain Mike’s served over 400 slices of pizza. 

“Sports fandom is integral to our brand DNA, and our ongoing partnership with Angels Baseball allows us to connect with our Southern California fans in new and exciting ways, including our Shutout Challenge and community activations,” says Carol DeNembo, CMO of Mountain Mike’s Pizza. “We encourage all pizza- and baseball-loving fans to download the Mountain Mike’s Pizza Mountain Rewards app to ensure they have a free mini pizza on deck for the Angels’ first shutout of the regular season!” 

In addition to Angels Baseball, Mountain Mike’s Pizza maintains successful partnerships with the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers and the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, underscoring the brand’s longstanding commitment to families, sports fans and communities throughout California and the Western U.S. With nearly 300 restaurants in operation, 30 franchised restaurants set to open over the next 12 months and active development in 10 states, the brand is poised for phenomenal growth in 2024 and beyond. Among Mountain Mike’s fastest-growing markets is Southern California, where the brand has been headquartered since 2017, making the partnership with Orange County’s iconic MLB club a natural fit.
