Ding Dong Duck: EatStreet, Mallards partner to make special deliveries to fans

Team mascot, Maynard G. Mallard, to surprise hungry baseball fans

Madison – Two of Madison’s homegrown favorites, EatStreet and the Madison Mallards, are bringing baseball and eats to fans May 18-19.

Teaming up, they’ll treat fans to pizza deliveries from Mallards team mascot, Maynard G. Mallard, this preseason as part of a social media contest and season-long partnership.

Starting May 10, fans can enter to win on EatStreet’s contest site, through midnight May 16. From 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 18-19, Maynard and EatStreet will deliver pizza, two Mallards tickets and fan gear to 25 randomly selected winners.

"The Mallards are thrilled to partner with EatStreet, a fellow local, Madison-based company," said Mallards general manager Tyler Isham. "The EatStreet brand fits with everything the Mallards are: fun, innovative, and family friendly."

In addition, throughout the summer, EatStreet is a primary sponsor of the Mallards 2017 Season. EatStreet will host six “EatStreet Catch & Reel” nights at Breese Stevens Field, where attendees can enjoy a movie and fish fry.

“Madison is home base for EatStreet, and we’re always looking for fun ways to do more in the community,” said Suzanne Harms, EatStreet’s chief marketing officer. “There are few things more fun in the summer than baseball and good food, which makes this the perfect pairing for saying thanks to our fans.”
