Congratulations to Pinthouse Pizza, Winner of Escalon and Polly-O’s “Capture a Better Slice” Giveaway.


ESCALON, CA, June 20, 2018 – Escalon Premier Brands and Polly-O Cheese would like to thank everyone who visited their booth at the International Pizza Expo this year. Show attendees were invited to scan their badge to enter to win the “Capture a Better Slice” giveaway. Pinthouse Pizza from Austin was the lucky winner of a professional photoshoot for their menu.

Pinthouse has two locations in Austin, Texas—featuring specialty pizzas with high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients and more than 40 craft beers. Their menu is designed to offer unique takes on classics while exploring interesting combinations and using other Austin businesses as vendors when possible. In addition to local ingredients, Co-Owner Ned Lavelle talked about serving Escalon tomatoes: “Christina’s Organic Tomatoes are terrific. Pinthouse Pizza loves offering a healthy sauce to our guests.”

Co-Owner Nic Van Biene expressed his excitement about winning the photoshoot: “In this day and age where great imagery of your product can be more valuable than actual content, we can never have too much eye-catching imagery. Just as it’s important to provide new and exciting handcrafted food menu items and beers, it’s important to continually provide new and exciting imagery for our audience.” Van Biene says they plan to use the photos on social media and their website.

Along with high-quality ingredients, great-looking food photography can help elevate an operation’s menu as well as their online and social presence. When food is featured at its best, it can help attract customers, set operations apart in a crowded marketplace, create online buzz and help sell higher profit items. Escalon and Polly-O are happy to have given Pinthouse Pizza the opportunity to grow their business using new photography.
