DiGiorno's a No-Go, White Sox to Bring Beggars to the Cell

The Chicago White Sox are ditching DiGiorno's and going with Chicago-based Beggars as the official pizza of U.S. Cellular Field.

It's not DiGiorno—it's Beggars.

The Chicago White Sox have signed a multi-year contract with locally owned Beggars Pizza, making it the official pizza provider at U.S. Cellular Field, Crain's Chicago Business reports. The team's deal with DiGiornio expired at the end of last season.

Beggars has been moving up the ranks of the country's top 100 largest pizza companies, recently landing in the the group's "Six Up and Comers List" at number 54 overall, according to PizzaToday.com.

Last year, the Chicago-based pizza company jumped 16 spots from 2012, adding two stores and increasing its gross annual sales to just more than $40 million. 

Founded by Angelo Garetto in 1976, his son Larry currently runs the company, which now has 22 locations.

The new DiGiorno's recipe is horrible anyway. It used to be my favorite frozen pizza; now it's inedible.
