July 10, 2017 // Franchising.com // ANN ARBOR, Mich. – There’s no pizza like Cottage Inn Pizza - and this time, on July 13, they are celebrating their gluten-free menu by hosting a “Dine and Donate” event!
Cottage Inn has long been known for its high-quality pizza. A Michigan favorite for more than 65 years, the brand has gained a loyal fan following that has inspired the brand to give back to the community in a way that recognizes and supports its customers with food allergies and sensitivities.
On July 13, four Ann Arbor Cottage Inn Pizza locations are inviting their customers to donate $1 to Celiac Disease Foundation in order to receive a free one-topping gluten-free pizza (up to 300 pizzas, one per customer) from 3 - 5 p.m. Locations will accept donations made both in-store during the time of the event and online with proof of receipt. This offer is only available for dine-in and carryout orders, excluding orders made online or for delivery.
“We wanted to find a way to not only give back directly to our cherished customers, but also to show that we’re committed to providing a wide array of delicious products that appeal to all our guests, regardless of food allergies or sensitivities such as celiac disease,” said Deborah Masse, senior vice president at Cottage Inn Pizza. “We understand that while being gluten-free is not always a choice, our customers do have a choice in what gluten-free options to eat and we’re excited to give back free pizza in exchange for raising money for a worthy cause.”
Cottage Inn’s “Dine and Donate” doesn’t stop at a free gluten-free pie for every $1 donation. For every social media post that uses #GlutINNfree and features the gluten-free pizza, Cottage Inn Pizza will donate $1 to Celiac Disease Foundation. In addition, the customer to have received the most interaction (likes, shares, reposts, etc.) on their #GlutINNfree post will receive free pizza for a year.
The brand features a full gluten-free menu of pizzas with a choice of classic and premium toppings, sauces and crust flavors, dipping sauces, cheese bread and sandwiches proving that just because someone’s diet is gluten-free doesn’t mean he or she has to settle for pizza that is less than absolutely delicious.
