Joe Corbi's Wholesale Pizza announced Thursday it has outsourced its fundraising operations to national management firm Fundraising Manager.
The Baltimore-based pizza company said the move will allow Corbi's to renew its focus on manufacturing by allowing Fundraising Manager to handle logistics.
"Partnering with Fundraising Manager takes us another step closer to that goal because they have the infrastructure, systems, and connections to most efficiently work with the thousands of schools, sports teams, and other groups that love to sell our products to raise money for their programs," said Drew McManigle, Corbi's president.
Fundraising Management's clients also include Auntie Ann's Pretzels and Mrs. Fields' Original Cookies.
Corbi's, which produces pizzas, deserts, pretzels and other foods, is in the proccess of phasing out products "inconsistent with its standards" by June 30.
Founded by Baltimore native Joe Corbi in 1983, the company has helped such organizations as schools and hospitals raise more than $150 million.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
