The Pizza Cupcake, known for securing a deal with Lori Greiner on ABC's Shark Tank, has signed a nationwide distribution deal with Walmart. This is the company’s first nationwide expansion in brick-and-mortar retail, with The Pizza Cupcake’s two flavors, Margherita and Pepperoni, now on the shelves of over 1,600 Walmart locations in 47 states.
“We are so thrilled to be working with Walmart. We’re appreciative of their innovation in the space, and support for small businesses that focus on ingredients, quality and authenticity,” says The Pizza Cupcake founders Michelle Jimenez-Meggiato and Andrea Meggiato. “While we’ve come a long way from our first pizza date, and where we were at the time of Shark Tank, we want to continue to share our love for pizza as the go-to-snack for kids’ parties, family holidays and celebrations. Thanks to Walmart, The Pizza Cupcake has now become more accessible than ever!”
The national Walmart launch follows The Pizza Cupcake hitting the freezers of hundreds of other retail stores less than a year ago, including Fairway, Fresh Direct, Stew Leonard's, Whole Foods in New York and Wegmans throughout the east coast.
