Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen Honors Fans with Free Pizza

On Tuesday, October 16, Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen locations will celebrate National Pizza Month by offering new and existing fans a free slice of pizza during its third annual “Have a Slice Day.”  

Now through October 16, pizza-loving Facebook fans who “Like” Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen on Facebook will have access to a time-sensitive downloadable coupon for one free slice of pizza. These coupons will be redeemable during the one-day Have a Slice Day promotion at participating locations across the U.S. 
 
“What better way to celebrate National Pizza Month than inviting our fans to enjoy a free slice of our Neapolitan-style pizza?” says CEO Anthony Scotto. “This is just our small way of thanking our valued customers for their continued patronage throughout the year.”
 
Last year, Have a Slice Day served up more than 5,500 free slices of pizza nationwide - that’s more than 1,300 pounds of dough, 650 pounds of cheese, and more than 60 gallons of sauce in one day. Created in 2010 during National Pizza Month to celebrate Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen’s loyal fans, the promotion has helped grow and engage the brand's Facebook fans, and in 2011, within two weeks the promotion attracted nearly 3,000 Facebook fans.
 
“Last year, our fans came in droves to Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen locations nationwide to enjoy our pizza,” explains Scotto. “We hope our fans join us again this year and spread the word to friends and family so everyone can enjoy a free slice.”
