Marions to Offer 80-Cent Pizzas

According to a report in the Dayton Business Journal, “A chain of local pizza restaurants is rolling back its prices to 1965, in honor of its 44th anniversary.”

“All seven Marion’s Piazza locations will be serving the original 1965 menu Aug. 10. Prices that day will range from 80 cents for a small cheese pizza to $2.50 for a large deluxe pizza. Marion’s also will be serving salads for 25 cents, sandwiches for $1 and spaghetti with meatballs for $1. Marion’s usually does the 1965 promotion every five years, the last time being in 2005, but decided to bring the special back a year early because of the down economy. The restaurant chain expects to sell more than 20,000 pizzas during the promotion,” the story said.
