Pizza Schmizza announced today that its participating Pizza Schmizza and Schmizza Pub & Grub restaurants will honor the nationâ€™s veterans as well as currently serving members of the nationâ€™s armed forces on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11th, between 1 and 4 p.m. During those hours, any current or former member of the U.S. armed forces will be provided a complimentary slice of pizza, upon request.
Schmizzaâ€™s CEO Ron Berger said that the Pizza Schmizza franchise owners and staff wanted to recognize the tremendous commitment and bravery of our servicemen and women in some way, which led to the decision to conduct this program.
Schmizza is a member of the International Franchise Associationâ€™s Vet-Fran program, which provides assistance and incentives to help returning veterans to open their own Schmizza restaurant. Schmizza also provides scholarships to returning veterans to further their education, and the Company is a strong supporter of the Help Veteranâ€™s Own Franchises Act.
