DiGiorno pizza, anyone?

Posted by Aaron Popkey on May 14, 2013 – 11:46 am

After the surprise stop at Denmark High School, the Tailgate Tour made a stop in Little Chute at the plant that produces DiGiorno pizza, the official pizza of Lambeau Field.

After the surprise stop at Denmark High School, the Tailgate Tour made a stop in Little Chute at the plant that produces DiGiorno pizza, the official pizza of Lambeau Field.

What seemed like a normal evacuation drill for employees was actually a diversion to get everyone outside when the Tailgate Tour bus pulled up to the building.

The crew spent time mingling with the 350 employees and signed autographs and posed for pictures. Conversation about football was abound, including the current team and the Super Bowl teams from 1996 and ’97.

For Gale Cruse, a supervisor at the plant, it was a welcome surprise.

“We all just figured it was a drill, certainly,” she said. “But it was a big surprise. We were excited and everyone was clapping. Lots of smiles on people’s faces. Everyone was asking each other, ‘Did you know about this?’”

It’s off to lunch and then an afternoon full of activities.

    As an employee for nestle pizza, it was a great surprise to see the packers tailgate bus show up in our parking lot. I want to thank the packer players (former and current) and Mr. Murphy for stopping by and reaching out to talk, sign autographs, take pictures with employees. It was truly an experience I will never forget. GO PACK GO.
