After the first two surprise orders, The Pizza Bandit decided to run a campaign to match every donated pizza with another free pizza to go to a local business.
“All of these anonymous pizza antics got me to thinkin’ and now I wanna have a city-wide pizza party,” The Pizza Bandit’s founders wrote on Facebook on Friday. With more than 100 shares on social media, the campaign took off, and the pizza party began.
Every business that has benefitted from an unexpected delivery of a free pizza “has been ecstatic,” Johnson said.
For now, Pizza Bandit’s matching deal is finished. However, Pizza Bandit will still take orders for both local businesses and individuals if customers want to continue the anonymous donations.
“In order to be sustainable, we can’t keep matching right now, but may introduce a pop-up day or special occasion where we’ll match again in the future,” Johnson said.
