June 29, 2017 // Franchising.com // MORRISTOWN, NJ - Swimsuit season is finally here, meaning it’s time to hit the beaches, pools and lakes to have some serious fun in the sun. For many, it is also a time to get your style on and stand out with a look that is uniquely your own. To celebrate two of humanity’s greatest creations, Villa Italian Kitchen, one of America’s favorite quick-service pizza brands, today announced the launch of the Pizza-Kini, the world’s most mouthwatering bikini, made entirely of pizza! For one day only, on July 5’s National Bikini Day, pizza fanatics nationwide can order the limited-edition Pizza-Kini for their very own, retailing for an oven-hot price of $10,000.
To make the Pizza-Kini a reality, Villa Italian Kitchen enlisted New York City food stylist, Jessie Bearden, to hand craft each meat-iculously made suit, masterfully capturing the essence of both pizza and the bikini. Like all of Villa Italian Kitchen’s Neapolitan and Pan pizzas, the Pizza-Kini is made from the freshest ingredients, including homemade dough, hand-braided throughout the top and waistband, 100 percent whole milk mozzarella cheese, sauce made from fresh California tomatoes and topped with delicious pepperoni. Each of Villa Italian Kitchen’s Pizza-Kini’s are fully customizable, from choice of toppings like pepperoni, sausage, peppers and onions and more, to its personalized fitting to the body type of each customer. The cost of the Pizza-Kini includes an initial consultation and measurement session, creation of the customized suit - including topping preferences - and final fitting. Those interested in placing an order for the most delicious swimwear on earth can do so by sending a direct message through Villa Italian Kitchen’s Facebook page, www.Facebook.com/VillaItalianKitchen.
“We are excited to announce the launch of the Pizza-Kini, a truly one-of-a-kind bikini, available on National Bikini Day,” said Mimi Wunderlich, Director of Communications and Digital Marketing Strategy for Villa Italian Kitchen. “This summer, we wanted to celebrate items that Americans truly love. After a few brainstorming sessions, and with assistance from our talented food stylist, Jessie Bearden, the Pizza-Kini was born. We look forward to providing this unique style to the pizza and bikini loving public this summer - we are confident it will be a hit.”
Villa Italian Kitchen features a variety of mouthwatering menu items, from Neapolitan and Pan pizzas, with homemade dough prepared fresh daily, 100% whole milk mozzarella and sauce made from fresh California tomatoes, to pasta imported from Italy, delicious salads, Stromboli, entrees and much more.
