GetGo Slushie Cups

PITTSBURGH—GetGo Café + Market is getting ready for summer with a fun, new Spiked Slushies cup design. Partnering with four Pittsburgh-area artists on original design options, GetGo is asking guests to vote on their favorite to determine which piece of artwork will be featured on the cups through the summer.

“Our team has always been inspired by the talent of our local arts community, and we’re excited to now bring that experience to our guests in a unique way,” said Jon Cox, GetGo vice president and chief merchant, in a press release. “The addition of an original art piece on GetGo’s Spiked Slushies cups this summer is only the beginning of what we hope will be a long-lasting partnership with the arts community. As part of that commitment, GetGo is also making a $5,000 donation to support the programming of The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council.”

Pittsburgh-area artists commissioned for this campaign include Cameron Schmidt, Jeanine Murch, Ashante Josey and Cody Sabol. Cup designs plus more info about each artist are available on the GetGo website.

Since launching in late 2019, 46 GetGo locations across Pennsylvania and Ohio now sell the refreshing, quick-frozen malt beverages that are made with premium alcohol brands like Seagram’s Escapes, Smirnoff Ice, Mike’s Harder Lemonade and more. Each Spiked Slushies location carries two to six flavor options that include both every day and limited-time only flavors in 20-ounce and 32-ounce cups, with a new 64-ounce Party Bag coming soon.

This isn’t the first time a c-store has collaborated with artists on designs. 7-Eleven recently made a colorful splash in neighborhoods with murals on the sides of its stores, all done by local artists.
