Papa Murphy's Holdings Inc., the take-and-bake pizza franchise, and Boulder Brands, the makers of Udi's Gluten Free products, announced a partnership to bring Udi's Gluten Free pizza crust to Papa Murphy's locations. In September, customers at more than 1,000 Papa Murphy's stores will be able to get any of their favorite toppings or combinations on a 12-inch par-baked Udi's Gluten Free pizza crust.
"There is a clear and growing demand for gluten-free offerings in the marketplace and we are pleased to partner with Udi's Gluten Free Foods giving customers a high quality, gluten-free option that fits their lifestyle," says Ken Calwell, president and chief executive officer of Papa Murphy's Holdings Inc. "Fresh ingredients and a variety of premium toppings are hallmarks of our brand, which we believe pairs perfectly with Udi's commitment to tasty, high quality products. As we continue to offer our customers a variety of choices all at a value price, the partnership with Udi's is a natural fit with our mission to bring people together through food people love."
"As a leader in gluten-free food, we are proud to offer our products at Papa Murphy's across the country," says Denise Sirovatka, vice president of marketing for Udi's. "We've always been dedicated to delicious gluten-free food, and now customers can enjoy our crust with Papa Murphy's fresh ingredients."
Papa Murphy's advises customers that the certified gluten-free crust is topped in a shared kitchen that also handles gluten-containing ingredients.
