Pizza Pizza heads back to school to celebrate Frosh Week and its 50th birthday on Canadian campuses Friday, September 8th, 2017

TORONTO, ON, August 31, 2017 – Pizza Pizza, Canada’s leading pizza chain, kicks off its fifth annual Frosh Week campus tour, starting at U of T Scarborough on August 31, and ending at The University of Western Ontario on September 13. As part of its 50th year anniversary program, students won’t want to miss this special delivery!

Decked out in festive attire to celebrate its 50th birthday, Pizza Pizza’s team of ambassadors will be giving away free slices of pizza and coupons on campuses across Canada  – perfect for those study sessions and quick snack breaks. Pizza Pizza will also have a photo booth for students to create memories with their friends and, of course, their favourite slices. Students who take a photo in the photo booth will have the chance to win a $50 gift card.

Last year, more than 30,000 slices of pizza were given away during the school visits.

“Pizza is a welcomed part of the lives of many students,” said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza Pizza. “From study breaks to common room gatherings, our pizza is sure to bring people together to celebrate their love for food, friendship and learning.”
