SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza Partners with Nonprofit Connect

Kansas City, MO (Dec. 1, 2010) – SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza is launching an exclusive program with Nonprofit Connect to offer its members a 30 percent discount on catering and a reduced delivery fee within set geographic boundaries. The discounts are available to Nonprofit Connect members, which currently represent more than 500 nonprofit organizations.

Nonprofit Connect links the local nonprofit community to education, resources and networking opportunities so organizations can more effectively achieve their missions.

The partnership with Nonprofit Connect is the latest community outreach program from SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza, which supports a long list of local charities.

“We try to provide as much support as we can to local nonprofit organizations,” says SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza co-owner Gail Lozoff. “Being active myself in a variety of charitable organizations, I see how appreciative staff and board members are when the meals are special. Through our partnership with Nonprofit Connect, their members receive a substantial discount on SPIN! catering services for any of their events or meetings.”

In addition to the discounts, each person served will receive a SPIN! Free Pizza gift voucher good for either a free pizza or salad with the purchase of a pizza. If the person placing the order is a member of the SPIN! Club frequent diner program, they will personally be awarded the points and any rewards generated by the order.

Nonprofit organizations will have a variety of catering choices including SPIN!’s award-winning individual or full-size pizzas, deli sandwiches served as box lunches or on platters, salads, flatbreads with spreads, and Italian wedding cookies.

Nonprofit Connect’s Executive Director Michelle Davis said she is thrilled to be able to bring this innovative cost-saving program to her organization’s members. “Our partnership with SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza has the potential to save our members a substantial amount of money. SPIN!’s commitment to our community and the potential savings our members could realize are greatly appreciated at any time. In today’s economy, they mean even more,” Davis says.

Chipman Rd. in Lee’s Summit, Mo, 6541 W. 119th St. in Overland Park, Ks, and 14230 W. 119th St. in Olathe, Ks.  Voted best pizza in Greater Kansas City by numerous publications, SPIN! is known for its exceptional, artisan food made from fresh ingredients without the gourmet price and its eclectic, affordable premium wines.
