Thanks to the renowned local bakery, Kolache Factory, Houston Dynamo and Dash players’ birthdays just got a little more flavorful. Kolache Factory and the Dynamo and Dash are teaming up to send Happy Birthday messages to the players throughout the year and to offer fans a unique experience on game days as part of a partnership that makes Kolache Factory an official sponsor of the Houston Dynamo and Dash.
“It is always wonderful to partner with a local business, and Kolache Factory has a strong presence not only in Houston, but in the state of Texas as well,” said Club President John Walker. “Their commitment to excellence aligns well with our mission to provide our fans and guests with a top-notch experience, so this joining of Houston organizations was a great opportunity for all parties involved.”
Founded in Houston in 1982 by John and Jerri Banks, Kolache Factory specializes in providing a fresh, high quality breakfast that can be eaten on the go. Recognized as one of the Top 5 drive-thru’s in America by the Food Network, one of the fastest-growing companies in Houston, one of the top 50 food service bakeries in the United States by Modern Baking Magazine and one of Franchise Times magazine’s top 20 bakeries to watch, Kolache Factory is a staple of the Houston food community.
"We are so excited to team up with the Dynamo and Dash!” said Kolache Factory COO Dawn Nielsen. “While these teams bring Houston fans the beautiful game, we are honored to bring a variety of savory and sweet fresh, hand-made kolaches to the game day experience. And what fun it will be to recognize all the players on their special day!”
Fans are encouraged to stop by the Kolache Factory activation site at Texas Street Fest during Dynamo and Dash games throughout the season to receive fun giveaways while supplies last.
