For the Pizza Lovers

Pizza Lovers Compete for Free Tee

PizzaFor the past 20 years, Pete and Elda’s Bar & Carmen’s Pizzeria has been giving away free T-shirts to any guest who can eat their extra-extra-large pie!

This gimmick originally was started to bring in more business and has now turned into a tradition that brings in a number of pizza lovers who are eager to add a Pete and Elda T-shirt to their collection.  With T-shirt designs changing every six weeks, this gives the customers an incentive to come back for another pizza challenge and win a newly designed shirt.

Michael Jefferis, one of the five general managers at the restaurant, said “Every week we get at least one call from someone asking when the new design will be in.”   He also commented, “People keep coming back to check on what addition we have.   It’s like a collector’s item to our customers.”

The design team of a company in Manasquan, NJ works along with the manager of the restaurant to create new designs for the T-shirts.  This contest generates a lot of popularity with college kids.  It’s estimated that the restaurant gives away a couple hundred shirts a month!

The Pie Eater’s Club challenge is very important to the restaurant.  “We are famous for our pizza and by having this challenge, it makes it fun for our customers.  It brings excitement to their table, and gives them some memories that will last a lifetime,” says Jefferis.

In addition to the T-shirt giveaways, the eatery also sells branded merchandise, including T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and stickers.

MADE IN THE USA

USA MADEOur client, BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling, contacted us regarding purchasing USA- Made cloth wipes for their marketing campaign.  This information may be helpful in making sure you purchase genuine made USA products.

The Federal Tread Commission’s website, www.ftc.gov, assists in helping distinguish products that are truly U.S.- Made and products that claim to be U.S.-Made.  Their policy is for a product to qualify as “Made in the USA,” the product has to be “all or virtually all” made domestically.

What does the FTC mean by “all or virtually all?”  This means that all parts, processing, and labor must be of U.S. origin.  Products should not contain any foreign content.  The FTC defines “domestic” as products made in the United States including all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories and possessions.

WHY BUY U.S.-MADE PRODUCTS?

  • No long production and shipping times and tighter deadlines.
  • Clients must have goods that are 100% made in the USA for political or brand-association reasons to avoid offending their audience or being hypocritical.
  • Proof that strict safety and regulatory guidelines are met.
  • Quickly replenish stock with a more reliable inventory.
  • Support of workers and keeping jobs in the USA
