A Pizza Discount for Serving Your Country

According to abs-cbnnews.com, “A pizzeria in Angeles City has come up with a tasty way of honoring the country’s ‘modern heroes.'”

“The Pampanga-based restaurant Armando’s Pizza & Pasta, which takes pride in the moniker ‘Ang Pambansang Pizza’ (the national pizza), recently announced that it will be offering discounts for the country’s “patriots” – including government employees, teachers, overseas Filipino workers, soldiers, firefighters, and police.”

“‘Call it a gift, our small token of appreciation to all the modern-day heroes out there. These hard-working individuals are the new Rizals, new Bonifacios, and new Mabinis of our generation,’ said Marc Nepomuceno, the pizzeria’s owner, in a statement. The “Bagong Bayani” promo was launched last June 12 in time for Philippine Independence Day, and will run for one whole year. Eligible customers only need to present a valid I.D. to claim a 10-percent discount on their total pizza tab. Although the campaign is small and limited to its one restaurant, Nepomuceno said the customer benefits will be worth it, especially during economic slowdown.”
