SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT: McDonald's
Thanks to Franchisee John Kiely (@jkiely_john), Cross Cheaping, West Orchards, Alvis Retail Park and the Binley McDonald's are all strong partners of the Coventry Blaze.
McDonald's need absolutely no introduction, but this week we caught up with John to find out why the famous restaurant brand has chosen to sponsor and partner with the Blaze.
1/ What is your business called?
Jake Restaurants Ltd T/As McDonald’s.
2/ How long have you been sponsoring the Blaze?
Four years now.
3/ Why do you sponsor the Blaze?
Our company sponsor the Blaze to help support our identity as a community organisation that share a lot of the same customer base as the Blaze and because my staff like to go to the games and feel part of the 'M' on the shirt! I believe that it is important to support our local teams and to enhance the Coventry brand. It also gives us the chance to discount to the great Blaze fans.
4/ What have you sponsored this season?
The iconic M on the Jersey and McScorchio! We also sponsored a game vs. Nottingham Panthers this season.
5/ What are your highlights or best memories of being a sponsor for our club?
Working closely with the club in the Community and seeing the happiness that Scorch and the players bring when they visit our restaurants. Also watching some of the great games at the SkyDome and in Nottingham at play-offs! Seeing the M’s on the shirts when the players come out is always satisfying!
