Round Table Pizza, the 410-location pizza franchise owned by Los Angeles-based FAT Brands, announced a donation of $100,000 to Maui United Way to aid its ongoing recovery efforts in the wake of the catastrophic fires that swept through the island last summer. The donation is the collective effort of Round Table Pizza and its franchisees, in addition to FAT Brands’ own charitable organization, the FAT Brands Foundation.

“Round Table Pizza is a longtime member of the Maui community, with locations serving our classic pizza since 2007,” said David Pear, president of Round Table Pizza. “Our donation to Maui United Way underscores our dedication to our founder’s motto, ‘Share a little pizza with someone you love,’ and ensures that our locations in Maui and the wider community have access to critical resources as they continue to recover from the devastation. We are immensely grateful to our Round Table Pizza franchisees, our passionate customers and the FAT Brands Foundation, who were the ultimate champions of this effort.”

“Round Table Pizza has continually shown immense support for our community, especially in the wake of the recent fires,” added Nicholas Winfrey, president and chief professional officer at Maui United Way. “Their commitment extends beyond this generous donation. Since the fires devastated Lahaina, their local location has provided free pizza and drinks to our keiki [children], bringing smiles and comfort during these difficult times.”
