16-store, Growing Pizza Chain Replacing Coca Cola Products with Jones Soda, Expanding the Soda Company’s Footprint in Western Washington

SEATTLE, April 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jones Soda Co. (OTCQB: JSDA), a leader in the craft soda category and known for its unique branding and authentic connection to its consumers, has entered into a supply agreement with Zeeks Pizza that will bring Jones Cane Sugar Fountain Soda, Jones Cane Sugar in 12 oz. cans, and its newest brand, Lemoncocco, to all 16 Zeeks locations across Western Washington. Jones products will be replacing all Coke beverages in every location.

Zeeks Pizza, the growing pizza chain known for its commitment to high-quality, local ingredients that celebrate Northwest culture, has become a Seattle-area fixture since founders Tom Vial and Doug McClure started the company in 1993. Rooted in friendship and the outdoor adventure lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest, Zeeks is obsessed with craftsmanship and bold flavors. Zeeks’ addition of a lifestyle brand like Jones Soda to its menu will only add to its growing reputation as a destination for craft pizza, craft beer, and now, craft soda.

“Zeeks’ shared emphasis on quality, taste, and meaningful experiences provides a complementary relationship that makes perfect sense for a brand like Jones,” said Jennifer Cue, CEO of Jones Soda. “As we join the ranks of other quality-minded, up-and-coming chains in the Northwest, such as Great State Burgers, Sizzle Pie Pizza, and Katsu Burger to name a few, we are thrilled to now make our craft portfolio available at such a fun, iconic, local and fast growing chain like Zeeks.”

“Partnering with a like-mined, authentic and iconic brand like Jones Soda is an important milestone for Zeeks as we aim to provide more local products that have integrity and resonate well with our customers,” said Dan Black, president of Zeeks Pizza. “About 7 years ago, our team began the replacement of mainstream beers with craft beers, ultimately transforming our entire beer offering to one of only high-quality local beers which has been extremely successful and well received by our guests. Replacing our current portfolio of Coke beverages with Jones’ craft products that contain high-quality ingredients is a significant upgrade for our dedicated consumers and a continuation of this path to better quality, authentic, independent and local brands.”
