Let’s Celebrate Pizza (Box) Month!

October 06, 2015

October is Pizza Month. Mmm…pizza! For some of us, we devour and enjoy these delicious, savory pies every month. But when the Internet calls for an official month of celebration, we’re in—especially when we get to revel in innovative pizza box designs.

Have you heard us say, “No more brown box,” before? Surely, you have! And the pizza box is no exception to Ernest Packaging Solutions’ commitment to elevating food packaging to meet the quality product within.

Food delivery services are on the rise, which puts some tasty competition in the eat-at-home market for pizza delivery companies. Creating the box to serve up a warm slice of pie—from pizza shop to the front door—has been the name of the game for years. And for some pizza delivery services, the box marks an opportunity to act as a brand story board. Useful and entertaining packaging to stay ahead of the game?! That’s a winner!

One pizza connoisseur, Scott Weiner, took the study of pizza boxes so seriously, he catalogued over one hundred boxes in his book Viva la Pizza!: The Art of the Pizza Box. His five years of pizza box collecting gleaned insights in the creative brand designs and innovative box engineering that have trended over the years.
