NHL season coincides with the exciting new partnership between Boston Pizza & Zoom Media

Zoom Media_logoZoom Media® Inc. is proud to officially announce its partnership with the Boston Pizza® chain across the province of Quebec. Zoom Media’s sales and venue development teams have been working closely with Boston Pizza for over 6 months to finalize the terms of this agreement.

Boston Pizza has been a well-known establishment in the Canadian restaurant industry who is celebrating their 50 year anniversary next year. It entered the province of Quebec in 2004 with the opening of their regional office in Laval. This Canadian owned and operated chain quickly expanded, becoming Canada’s No. 1 casual dining brand.

With the addition of over 25 Boston Pizza restaurants in markets throughout Quebec, Zoom Media expands its already extensive Resto-bar network delivering over 14 million weekly impressions. This recognized chain offers advertisers reach amongst its core audience of 25-54 year olds in a casual yet dynamic social environment (sports bar and restaurant) where consumers are in a positive mindset and receptive to advertising messages.

“We are very excited to begin this new partnership with Boston Pizza.,” says Éric Fortin, Vice-President, Operations and Development, Zoom Media. “Timing could not be better; with the return of NHL hockey, advertisers can benefit from the increased traffic coming from excited sports enthusiasts ready for game night at Boston Pizza”.

“With our two concepts, one being our sit down restaurant area and the other being our sports bar section, we are providing Zoom Media a winning recipe to expand their reach in Quebec.”, mentions Carl Pichette, Principal director of Marketing for Quebec.
