Are you ready to rumble?
Your Pie, the originator of the down-the-line pizza category, is proud to launch the “Pie of the Year” contest on Facebook to determine the best original fan creation of 2013. Your Pie Facebook fans will vote to determine who reigns supreme as 2013’s king or queen of customizable culinary creativity.
Each month, Your Pie has honored its motto to “express your inner pizza” by inviting fans of the brand to submit their Your Pie customized pizza masterpiece on Facebook. A winner was selected each month based on fan voting and received free Your Pie for a month.
The “Pie of the Year” contest on Facebook pits all 12 winners against one another in a final showdown ¬– with the grand prize of a trip to the Island of Ischia in Italy, where Drew French, Founder of Your Pie, first conceived of the idea for a down-the-line, customizable pizza franchise.
“The spirit of Your Pie is based on creativity, originality, and fun,” French said. “Our fans have used our pizzas as the canvas for their culinary artistry and created some really incredible pies. I’m excited to send the winner to Ischia for an eye-opening and incredible experience – just like the one I had.”
The creator of the “Pie of the Year” will receive a grand-prize package that includes a flight to Italy with four nights lodging, transportation to Ischia from Rome, and a $700 spending card.
The 12 finalists represent a cross-section of Your Pie’s 18 locations, and their creations include colorful names such as the “Bulldawg Bite,” “Hearts On Fire” and “Mama Walker’s Mediterranean Madness.”
The winner of 2012’s “Pie of the Year” was Kelly Brooks from Watkinsville, Ga., whose “The Aloha” pizza creation earned the top honor.
Voting for the “Pie of the Year” begins at 12 p.m. ET on Thursday, January 2, and will end at 12 p.m. ET on Monday, January 20, on Your Pie’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/YourPie.
Only Your Pie Facebook fans will be able to vote for the winner, and each fan has the opportunity to vote once per day during the voting period. The winner will be announced on Monday, Jan. 27, 2014.
As its impressive digital fan base is translating to a growing customer clientele, Your Pie aims to reach 100 locations in the U.S. by the end of 2015, with plans to add locations in Atlanta, Charlotte, Tampa, Nashville, Charleston, Birmingham and Augusta, Ga. Although Your Pie is primarily looking for partners to join the Your Pie family in the Southeast, the brand is capable of supporting locations across the country.
