NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Bill Holland, a customer at the Little Point Auto Truck Stop in Stilesville, Ind., was named the grand-prize winner of the inaugural Hunt Brothers Pizza Free Fill-up Sweepstakes. Randomly selected from 41,168 entries, Holland will receive free Hunt Brothers pizza and gasoline for one year courtesy of Hunt Brothers.
"The contest was an amazing success—not just for our winner, but for all of our participating convenience store locations," Scott Hunt, senior executive of Hunt Brothers Pizza, said in a released statement. "With our company’s first nationwide sweepstakes, we were able to boost interest in our products and awareness of where our pizza can be found in communities all across the country. In the long run, that can translate into increased sales for all our convenience store partners."
As the location of the winning sweepstakes contestant, the Little Point Auto Truck Stop will be the site for the prize presentation Dec. 12, at 1 p.m.
Having never tried a Hunt Brothers Pizza, Holland said he noticed a tabletop display for the sweepstakes at the Little Point Auto Truck Stop near his home and signed up for the contest online that night. A former employee with a major manufacturing company in technological infrastructure, Holland left his office job of 30 years to work with homeless teenagers at a nonprofit organization called Stepping Stones. The staff and volunteers at Stepping Stones help young men and women find a new home, earn a high school diploma, find employment or attend college.
Hunt Brothers Pizza is the largest distributor of fresh dough pizza to the convenience store market, with more than 6,000 locations in 27 states.
