Pita Pit Empowers Local Restaurants to Give Back with the Launch of ‘Cater for a Cause’ Campaign
Brand to Award Free Catered Parties to Five Deserving Organizations Nominated by Pita Pit Team Members and Guests
Coeur d’Alene, ID (RestaurantNews.com) For Pita Pit, the “Fresh Thinking, Healthy Eating” restaurant franchise, giving back to the local communities it serves has always been a top priority. Across the brand’s United States locations, owners, employees and guests frequently find new ways to help those in need. Now, during the holiday season of giving, the brand is launching a new campaign centered on its commitment to charity called “Cater for a Cause.”
Through December 5, Pita Pit fans across the country can visit the “Cater for a Cause” tab on the brand’s Facebook page to nominate any business, non-profit, school or other community organization that they believe is deserving of a free, catered Pita Pit party. Nominations should explain, in 250 words or less, how the organization positively impacts the community. A panel of judges will then review those submissions and select 15 for the public to vote on through a Facebook photo album. The polls will be open from December 12 to December 19. The top five nominees—one from each region of the U.S.—will ultimately be declared the lucky winners.
“Our franchisees, employees and customers are extremely involved in their local communities, so we wanted to support them by giving an opportunity to recognize the organizations they really care about this holiday season,” said Patrick O’Dell, Director of Marketing for Pita Pit USA. “Everyone eating at a Pita Pit restaurant can nominate an organization they’re passionate about, and we’re proud to help celebrate all of those who are making a positive impact throughout the year.”
Because of the brand’s extensive menu and ability for customization, it’s an ideal choice for companies and organizations looking to cater an event. Pita Pit’s catering service brings a fresh and flavorful dining experience right to its guests, including grilled meats, vegetables and zesty sauces all stuffed into one of the brand’s signature pitas. Beyond pita platters, Pita Pit’s catering menu also offers salads, sides and express lunch boxes.
“We’re proud to provide a healthy and fresh catering option to the communities we call home this holiday season,” O’Dell said. “We look forward to learning more about which organizations our fans care most about and how we can continue to serve them.”
