We talked to Yousef Katan CEO and President of TruMedia about his objectives for Pizza Patrón: "They want to be the preferred pizza choice for Hispanics.   Sales obviously are a priority like most brands in the category, but they truly have a passion for the consumer.   They’ve shown their commitment with historical stances, like Pizza for pesos, where they would accept pesos as payment." In terms of the media that TruMedia is going to use to promote Pizza Patrón Kattan notes that "radio will be a purely U.S. Hispanic push while Out of Home and Digital will be used both in the general and U.S. Hispanic markets."
