CONCORD, Calif., Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- News from earlier this week that Queen Elizabeth II may have never eaten a slice of pizza has left many stunned and confused. How could it be that the monarch who has experienced so much has not enjoyed the pleasure that is baked cheese, sauce and dough? Round Table Pizza® is on a mission to right this royal wrong.
To encourage the queen to eat pizza in 2019, Round Table Pizza, which is recognized as Pizza Royalty in the United States, announced today that it has sent a formal invitation to Buckingham Palace, inviting her to enjoy a complimentary pizza of her choice – any size, with any toppings.
If this effort succeeds in convincing the queen to publicly announce that she has in fact eaten pizza between today and Dec. 31, 2019, participating Round Table Pizza locations will invite customers to enjoy one FREE* Original Personal Pizza (cheese or pepperoni, dine-in only) at a to-be-determined later date and time.
*Offer valid at participating locations, dine-in only.
Round Table Pizza has also launched WillTheQueenEatPizza.com, a website that will allow loyal followers of Round Table Pizza and the queen to sign up to receive a special "royal" offer from Round Table Pizza, follow news about the queen and see a countdown clock to the end of 2019.
Additionally, Round Table Pizza will encourage customers to share the formal invitation on social media to attract the broadest possible attention to one of America's favorite meals – pizza.
"As the creators of Pizza Royalty, Round Table Pizza is the perfect ambassador to bring Queen Elizabeth II and pizza together," said Geoff Goodman, Executive Vice President of Round Table Pizza. "By teaming up with our loyal customers, we're hopeful that the queen will try pizza in 2019, resulting in a celebratory feast of Original Personal Pizzas fit for all. In other words, if the queen eats pizza, you eat pizza."
