National Pizza Day is this Friday (Feb. 9)! Pizzeria operators have found creative ways to mark the occasion. We’ve scoured the web and social media to share how pizzerias are celebrating. Here are ten fun marketing and outreach ideas we came across:

  • Debut limited-time-only pizzas and new pizzas to secret menus
  • Pizza giveaways for the first “X” number of customers
  • Discounts, promo codes, BOGO deals, meal packages galore
  • Giveback events for local charities
  • Nationwide Pizza Across America participating pizzerias will deliver 10 pies to a local hunger action center
  • Making pizzas on local news programs and other media spots
  • Games and more games, including pizza naming and trivia for swag, prizes and gift cards
  • Pizza and craft beer pairing events
  • Tie in a Customer Appreciation Day with parties

Don’t forget to tag #PizzaToday in your National Pizza Day posts so we can see how you celebrate.
