Netflix Partners With Jon & Vinny’s for The Queens Gambit Pizza Boxes

Jon & Vinny’s is offering pizza with extra chess this weekend. As part of Netflix’s For Your Consideration campaign for its limited series “The Queen’s Gambit,” the streamer has partnered with the popular local pizza chain to hand out custom pizza boxes this weekend promoting the show.

This weekend, the Jon & Vinny’s green and white cardboard pizza boxes have been redesigned into chess boards. And each pizza order will include a 32-piece black and white plastic chess set in a branded “The Queen’s Gambit” bag. Those bags also include a hang tag featuring star Anya Taylor-Joy on the front with a QR code on the back linking to “The Queen’s Gambit” FYC site.

Every Jon & Vinny’s pizza order across its Fairfax and Brentwood locations in Los Angeles from Thursday, June 10 to Sunday, June 13, will receive the boxes and chess set.

The idea for the promo came out of the notion that interest in chess has seen a resurgence since the premiere of “The Queen’s Gambit” in October. The streamer reports that Google search queries for “chess” doubled while searches for “how to play chess” hit a nine-year peak. Inquiries for “chess sets” on eBay went up 250% and chess set sales increased by nearly double.

Along with the pizza campaign, Netflix also launched a digital spot of a Chess Monthly magazine that morphs into Russian.

“The Queen’s Gambit” is a front-runner in the limited race, having already won top prizes at other awards shows including Golden Globes for limited series, anthology or TV movie and limited series/TV movie actress for star Anya Taylor-Joy. She also won the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a television movie or limited series.
