Pizza Inn Launches Treats for Troops With a TwistPopular international chain partners with Operation Shoebox, treats guests to free Pepperoni Twist for each holiday care package donation

Pizza Inn Launches Treats for Troops With a TwistRenowned for its wide variety of delicious traditional and specialty pizzas, Pizza Inn has been serving up smiles one slice at a time for nearly 60 years. This year, the restaurant chain is extending its reach worldwide with Treats for Troops With a Twist, a project aimed at making our service men and women’s holidays a whole lot sweeter.

Starting today, participating restaurants will urge guests to visit their neighborhood Pizza Inn by Sunday, Nov. 2, with a bag of unwrapped, individual-size candy to be included in care packages addressed to military personnel stationed across the globe. For each bag donated, the guest will be treated to a free Pepperoni Twist.

A delicious take on a classic favorite, these Stromboli-like sensations are made by wrapping fresh, hand-tossed Italian dough around a generous blend of zesty pepperoni and mouthwatering, melted mozzarella. Topped off with a generous sprinkling of signature Romano and Parmesan magic dust, these delectable creations are the perfect addition to any meal at Pizza Inn.

“We’re proud to reach outside the four walls of our restaurants to share a little hometown love with the brave men and women standing on the wall to defend our freedoms,” said Randy Gier, Chief Executive Officer of Pizza Inn. “But we can’t do it alone, so we’re calling on communities nationwide to join with us and Operation Shoebox to offer this special salute to our troops and to let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers.”

Operation Shoebox embraces a practical mission of providing hands-on support for troops deployed overseas and returning home. The organization specializes in sending care packages and boosting morale with practical tokens of thoughtfulness in the form of snacks, personal care items, entertainment and thank-you notes to men and women stationed around the world.

Pizza Inn guests can personalize their donations by including a thank-you card that may also be shared in real-time by uploading a picture of the card to Facebook and Instagram while using the hashtag #pizzainn.

In another tasty twist, Pizza Inn guests can also get five delicious Pepperoni Twists for just $5 when they purchase any medium or large pizza through Nov. 26. Make it a family night and get 10 twists, a medium Cheesebread and medium chocolate chip Pizzert for only $19.99 (Offer available for dine-in, carryout or delivery).
