Express stores from around the world took home a slice a victory as two key suppliers honored teams for being the best in two recent selling challenges. Hunt Brothers Pizza and Deli Express recognized the winners June 24, the opening day of the annual Express seminar in Orlando.
This year’s Hunt Brothers Pizza “How ’Bout a Pizza” contest awarded the top-sellers in CONUS and OCONUS during an eight-week promotion period. Fort Benning’s main post mini mall and the Vicenza Express were a cut above the resting, earning a trophy and plaque.
