Tutta Bella Serves More Than $100,000 in Free Pizza

According to the Issaquah Press,  “Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizza doled out more than 8,000 free pies during a customer appreciation campaign last week.”

“The mini-chain offered free pizzas after garnering recent awards from the National Restaurant Association and the Washington Restaurant Association. Tutta Bella served 8,451 pizzas — worth more than $100,000 — to about 20,000 diners during the weeklong campaign at pizzerias in Issaquah, Columbia City, South Lake Union and Wallingford. The day after the free-pizza promotion started, Tutta Bella founder Joe Fugere met President Obama at a Seattle roundtable for small business owners. Later, in remarks in Pioneer Square, Obama talked about the challenges Fugere faced to open the Issaquah restaurant.”
