Schwan Food Company & The Red Baron Arena & Expo
Red Baron® pizza is a nationally recognized brand that’s made and marketed by subsidiaries of The Schwan Food Company, longtime supporters of sports events and facilities — particularity hockey venues — in Minnesota. Additionally, The Schwan Food Company, which was founded in Marshall in 1952, has been a strong supporter of the local community through charitable giving and youth athletics funding and promotion.
“Our heritage is rooted in Marshall, Minnesota, so it’s an honor for us to have our iconic Red Baron® pizza brand associated with this outstanding arena. It has been inspiring to see the community rally together and show its commitment to youth athletics by bringing this facility to life,” said Dimitrios Smyrnios, CEO of The Schwan Food Company. “We are extremely excited about this partnership and look forward to working with the City of Marshall and the Southwest Minnesota Amateur Sports Commission to help make Marshall a destination for youth sports enthusiasts throughout the Upper Midwest.”
The Schwan Food Company donated more than 29 acres of property to the City of Marshall to support the MARSH facilities and infrastructure. The company also sold approximately 14 acres of land to the City of Marshall at a discounted market rate for the development of four softball and youth baseball fields within the Hub.
