Made with premium toppings on a self-rising crust, Fly Guys Pizza arrives frozen and fully packaged for retailers to serve hot by the slice or by the 12” pizza, or the 12” pizzas can be merchandised for retail sale in the frozen section for consumers to bake at home. Fly Guys combines great taste with incredible value and is offered in three delicious flavors: pepperoni, five-meat and breakfast — because it’s never too early for pizza! The brand was conceived with a unique story of two Italian skydivers. Legend has it that Luciano Rosso and Frederico Moretti had a shared passion for pizza AND skydiving, and they decided mid-air to join forces to share their love of Italian pies with the world. Thus, Fly Guys Pizza was born.

McLane Kitchen and CVP offer customers Fly Guys-branded packaging including pizza boxes and slice trays, equipment ranging from pizza ovens to serving utensils, as well as signage such as posters, menu boards and banners.

“We are thrilled to enter the most talked about category in convenience with Fly Guys Pizza program,” said Teresa Voelter, general manager of Consumer Value Products at McLane. “With retail and foodservice options, our customers will be enthusiastic about the program and its benefits to help drive their sales.”

In addition to Fly Guys Pizza, CVP is also proud to launch new products for Beau Dacious, its line of pet products, that include leashes and food/water bowls, as well as assorted fruit snacks and dinosaur fruit snacks for the YumBees brand at McLane’s National Trade Show. CVP products are available to both McLane customers and non-McLane customers and are currently offered at retail locations nationwide.
