World Pizza Champions & Lindsay Olives National Kids Pizza Making Contest
Last Call for Independent Pizzerias to Sign Up
LAFAYETTE, CA August 10th,2006
There is still time to take part in the Lindsay Olives Kid’s Pizza Making Contest to take place on Saturday, October 7, 2006. If your pizzeria is interested please contact us as soon as possible as the cut-off date is September 1st.
We are aiming to have at least one pizzeria from each state participate, and currently Ohio and California dominate the list.
This will be a great marketing strategy for your pizzeria and can result in thousands of free advertising dollars by way of word of mouth, local newspaper write ups, and local television coverage. Don't miss this opportunity to market your pizzeria!
The nationwide contest challenges children, ages 12 and younger, to make a kid-sized pie with their favorite ingredients, including olives, at the pizzeria, where it will be baked and judged. The winning Pizza will be named by its creator and added to the pizzeria’s menu. One Grand Prize winner randomly selected from winners at the independent pizzerias will be awarded a visit by one of The World Pizza Champion Team members to learn some pizza acrobatic tricks. Most recently The World Pizza Champions performed their breath-taking Pizza acrobatics on “Master of Champions,” ABC-TV’s prime time reality show. All winners will receive a case of their favorite Lindsay Olives.
Lindsay Olives will provide marketing, media outreach, sign-up materials and olives to each pizzeria. The World Pizza Champions will select the pizzerias and serve as a liaison with them. The pizzerias will be responsible for distributing marketing and media materials, selecting the judges, providing all ingredients except for the olives, which Lindsay Olives will supply, and implementing the contest and its prize. Contest rules can be reviewed at www.worldpizzachampions.com/lindsayolives.php.
Pizzerias can sign-up to host the contest for their neighborhood kids by contacting Tony Gemignani at 510-427-6979 / firstname.lastname@example.org or Michael Shepherd at 567-674-4464 / email@example.com, now through September 1, 2006. Please hurry as spots are limited!
Should your pizzeria be chosen to participate, please feel free to stop by our booth (#529) at Pizza Today's Northeast Pizza Show, September 13-14th 2006. We will be on hand to answer any of your questions. Pizza operators from around the country will be at hand at one of the biggest pizza shows in the U.S.
