Oxford, MI -- FRUITION, LLC. has been issued an USPTO utility patent for the multi-functional pizza box lid support called FUNstax® -- Pizza Happy Meals. This innovative and pizza consumer fun product is also a high impact marketing/promotional tool with endless creative possibilities. FUNstax® replaces the standard white throw away pizza box lid support (aka: Barbie Tables) with a consumer usable pizza happy meal support that ensures a pizza arrives in tact. It was first created to help pizzerias start the happy meal "Nag-Factor" with kids just like the hamburger places have done for over 20 years. Yet, it goes much further because, depending on the design it can appeal to all age groups from children through adults. Another benefit is FUNstax® costs as little as a penny each, giving pizzerias the opportunity to save money by using less expensive pizza boxes.
This patent protection allows for many designs, such as a football game or hockey, basketball, baseball, soccer, cricket and many more collectable games and toys. The FUNstax® support (with or without promotional advertising) breaks apart into a football and goal post for example, and the pizza box or pizza flyer has a football field printed on it, so the consumer can start playing. Other designs include break-off collectable jewelry, pendants, golf tees, race cars, DVD holders, toys, spice shaker, sauce cup and much more. We are very pleased with the early sales results and our customers have supplied some very positive feedback.
Our goal is to partner with creative pizza chains, pizzeria suppliers, entertainment, pro-sports and any retail product industries wanting to be the leaders in a marketing/promotional campaign using the FUNstax® concept. Many promotional avenues exist in where the consumer can win contest prizes or get free music downloads, movie passes and the like. The advertising/promotional opportunities will produce profitable results for a company that is a supplier to both the pizza industry and the consumer. A soft drink supplier is a good example. On the FUNstax® support they could have 3 break-off usable golf tees for legs and the top could be a bottle cap, with the bottom of the cap having a prize number, etc.
