Dec. 14, 2009 – As Pizza Pizza's
millionth online customer, Lisa King of London, Ont., has been awarded
a prize of a free large, three-topping pizza every month for the rest
of her life.
King placed her order on Monday, Nov. 30, at 5:36 p.m., ordering two large pizzas with bacon, mushrooms and sausage on the first, and pepperoni and bacon on the second.
The celebration comes just after the company recently made online ordering available throughout the entire Pizza Pizza chain, which now includes British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec.
“This was the first time I have ever used online ordering,” King said. “I actually prefer ordering this way, especially now since I have won pizza for life.”
Fans and followers of Pizza Pizza’s presence on Facebook and Twitter were able to track the progress of the online orders through regular updates posted as the company neared the one million order mark. King already has a lot of "new friends" hoping she will invite them over for pizza.
“This is the first time we’ve ever given away pizza for life in a contest, so we are as excited as Lisa is,” said Pizza Pizza chief marketing officer Pat Finelli. “It’s so nice to have someone as nice as Lisa to celebrate the growth of our team’s online ordering system.”
