MYRTLE BEACH, SC — The Myrtle Beach Pelicans welcome a variety of new food options at Coastal Federal Field for the 2001 season. Papa John’s Pizza, Heavenly Ham, Wendy’s, Dole and Minute Maid are a handful of the new vendors serving their food and beverage during the Pelicans third season.
Papa John’s Pizza will be serving slices and whole pizzas. The pizzas can be purchased at the main concession stands, will be hawked in the seating areas and will be available for the luxury suite guests. In addition to serving their product, Papa John’s Pizza corporate sponsorship with the Pelicans includes sponsorship of the Opening Night festivities that include the entertainment act “Reggy” and the magnet schedule giveaway to all fans. Papa John’s Pizza will sponsor the daily Pelicans pre-game radio show interview on 99.5 FM WRNN.

Heavenly Ham’s box meal can be purchased at a kiosk in the main concourse. Heavenly Ham’s corporate sponsorship with the Pelicans includes a game program ad and a co-sponsorship with Independent Seniors Magazine for Senior Sundays (a discount ticket day for people ages 60 and over).
Wendy’s will serve their 12-ounce Frosty desserts at the sweet shop located at the main concession stand. The Pelicans corporate sponsorship with Wendy’s includes an outfield billboard, radio ads and sponsorship of in-between-inning promotions.
