Massachusetts-based Papa Gino’s and its sister brand, D’Angelo Grilled Sandwiches, gave away more than 2 million small cheese pizzas and small sandwiches to their rewards program members to help boost spirits after the Boston Celtics lost in the NBA finals, according to a press release.
On the morning of June 20th, all active, registered rewards members of Papa Gino’s and D’Angelo were treated to a free small cheese pizza or free small sandwich – totaling more than 2 million free pizza and sandwiches for their guests. The offer was valid on that day only.
“There has always been a close connection between New Englanders, sports, Papa Gino’s pizza and D’Angelo sandwiches, whether it’s a pizza party after a kids’ basketball game or watching a national championship in the living room with friends,” Deena McKinley, chief experience officer at Papa Gino’s Pizzeria and D’Angelo Grilled Sandwiches, said in the press release. “We hope this surprise giveaway helps to lessen the sting for local basketball fans and we look forward to celebrating future wins together.”
Papa Gino’s Pizzeria operates nearly 100 restaurants in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Connecticut.
