The Rock, Wood Fired Pizza & Spirits turns up the volume with new delivery service

SEATTLE (October 11, 2013) The Rock, Wood Fired Pizza & Spirits, a locally-based award-winning gourmet pizza and full service restaurant with a gritty rock ‘n’ roll vibe, is excited to celebrate “Rocktober” with the launch of a new delivery service available to Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood. To kick it off, rock legends will be delivering piping hot pizzas on October 10, 17, 24 and 31.

“We’re making it easier than ever for our customers to enjoy our gourmet pies in the comfort of their own homes,” said Don Bellis, co-founder and president of The Rock.

“Rock legends inspired our pizzas, the atmosphere in our restaurants and our Rocktails,” added Jay Gigandet, co-founder and CFO of The Rock. “It’ll be pretty awesome for our customers when they order a pizza and Jimi Hendrix shows up to deliver it!”

Delivery will be available weeknights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and weekends from noon to 9 p.m. starting September 26 and will be made in the Queen Anne neighborhood between Nickerson and Roy Streets and Elliott Street and Dexter Avenue. Delivery will be available for all items from The Rock’s award-winning menu of rock ‘n’ roll-inspired pizzas as well as burgers, pastas, sandwiches, salads, appetizers and more.

In celebration of “Rocktober” and the launch of the new service, rockin’ music legends will be delivering gourmet pizzas on October 10, 17, 24 and 31 with a line-up including Gene Simmons from KISS, ZZ Top and Jimi Hendrix. Customers are invited to snap a photo with their rock star delivery driver and share it to The Rock’s Facebook page by the end of October for a chance to win a $150 or $50 gift certificate. Two winners will be randomly selected from the uploaded photos at the end of the month.

The Rock’s menu has earned top honors, including best pizza in KING 5 Evening Magazine’s “Best of Western Washington” for four consecutive years, a spot on Pizza Today’s list of Top 100 pizza companies and Restaurant Business FUTURE 50.
