Heinz brand, family ties, ubiquitous in Pittsburgh

Passers-by move along Penn Avenue past Heinz Hall in downtown Pittsburgh on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013. In a deal announced on Thursday, billionaire Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway and another investment group, is acquiring the ketchup-fueled food conglomerate, H.J. Heinz Co. The Heinz name is all over Pittsburgh from where the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra performs here at Heinz Hall: the city's regional history museum is named for the ketchup patriarch's grandson, the late U.S. Sen. John Heinz. Heinz Memorial Chapel, the family's Gothic limestone gift to the University of Pittsburgh, and Heinz Field, where the Pittsburgh Steelers play their home games as well as many more.
