Barro’s Pizza and Dr Pepper Award Local Student $10,000 in Tuition

By Pizza Today


PHOENIX – January 2015 – For the third year in a row, family owned and operated, Barro’s Pizza partnered with Dr Pepper to host the higher education tuition giveaway. This is the second year that one local student received a $10,000 tuition check to put towards their college education. The contest was available to Arizona residents, 18 years and older. This year’s winner was Adam Mendoza from Queen Creek, Arizona.

Mendoza will be using the tuition check to help pay for his Master’s degree that he received in 2003. He currently has a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and a Master of Telecommunications Management degree.

For the past two years the tuition giveaway has been widely received, more than 5,000 entries submitted last year alone. Helping residents reach their higher education and career goals without high loan debt is just one of the many ways local and family owned, Barro’s Pizza, gives back to the valley community.

 

About Barro’s Pizza

Barro’s Pizza is a locally and family owned pizza operation with 35 locations around the Valley. The Barro’s Pizza recipe comes from Grandma Angelina Barro who came from Italy in the 1930’s, providing a pizza unlike any other. People may disagree on whether it’s the thick crust with its light, flakey texture, which almost melts in your mouth, or the wonderful spiced sauce that is both tangy and sweet, that is the secret of this great tasting pizza. Barro’s Pizza also provides wings, salads, sandwiches, pastas, gluten-free pizza options, dessert, beer and wine.  For more information, visit www.barrospizza.com.
