Premium coffee and ice cream now available at venue as part of Blue Jays sponsorship
OAKVILLE, ON, Aug. 23, 2011 /CNW/ - Blue Jays fans and concert goers can now enjoy their favourite Tim Hortons coffee and treats and personalized premium ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery when visiting the Rogers Centre in Toronto. Two co-branded Express kiosks at the venue are part of both brands' sponsorship agreement with the Blue Jays, which also includes stadium signage and sampling opportunities during select Jr. Jays Saturdays.
"The Rogers Centre is such a fun place to be, especially during baseball season," said Andrea Hughes, Cold Stone Creamery Canada's resident ice cream expert. "We felt this location was a home run for both Tim Hortons and Cold Stone and are excited to be part of this Blue Jays season."
Tim Hortons will serve up premium coffee, baked goods, Iced Cappuccinos and Real Fruit Smoothies, while eight of Cold Stone Creamery's best-selling Signature Creations will bring the delicious, fresh and premium ice cream to the Rogers Centre.
A unique relationship between Tim Hortons and Cold Stone Creamery brings the premium ice cream made fresh in every restaurant to more than 100 co-branded restaurants across Canada. To experience Cold Stone, guests simply choose their cone or cup size - Like ItTM, Love ItTM, Gotta Have ItTM - ice cream or sorbet and any number of countless mix-ins such as fruit, nuts, candies and other toppings. A team member mixes the selections with spades on a chilled granite stone, and the Creation is presented to the guest as The Ultimate Ice Cream Experience®. Guests can also enjoy Cold Stone Creamery's take-home treats such as ice cream cookie sandwiches, cupcakes, pies and cakes.
