A Temple Hills, Maryland couple has founded Pizza Addicts Anonymous, a group of 150 members who share their love for pizza. The club, which formed in April, travels to various pizzerias each month, as well as gathering to celebrate pizza-related holidays. Check out more about this club at Gazette.net.
Pizza Addicts isn’t the first club of its kind. We found pizza clubs in Chicago, New York and Pittsburgh, etc. On the popular group site, Meetup.com, we discovered dozens of pizza groups across the country, visiting pizzerias once a month or even once a week.
So you’ve found a pizza club in your region. What’s next? Contact the group’s leader or administrator and invite them to try your pizza. These groups often blog about their pizzeria visits. Not only are you getting a new, paying customer, you are also getting a word-of-mouth ambassador and broadening your online identity and reputation.
Be warned: Pizza fans will also be your harshest critics. Be consistent and on top of your game every time. You never know when a pizza club will drop in on your pizzeria.
