Pizza Pizza unveils tamper-proof box
April 9, 2020, Toronto, Ont. – Pizza Pizza has unveiled a tamper-proof pizza box that features a safety locking mechanism. The mechanism must be broken by the customer to access the pizza inside.
The proprietary Tamper Proof Pizza Box provides customers with an extra level of assurance that their pizza is untouched, from the moment it leaves the oven, to the time it arrives at their door.
“The health and safety of our customers, staff and franchise operators has always been our top priority,” said Paul Goddard, CEO at Pizza Pizza. “Our team has been working tirelessly to adapt to the recent health crisis, so that we can continue to provide safe and secure service to Canadians. We are pleased to be able to offer a packaging solution that will give our customers added confidence in knowing their food is protected and safe.”
Pizza Pizza aims to have the boxes available in all sizes at all 420 restaurants across the country, by the end of April.
Pizza Pizza restaurants adhere to strict preparation guidelines, ensuring that each pizza is:
- Baked at 500 degrees Fahrenheit;
- Transferred from the oven using a paddle;
- Placed directly into the pizza box;
- Secured in place with the new, integrated safety lock; and
- Delivered promptly within the guaranteed delivery time.
On March 18, Pizza Pizza was among the first national pizza chains to offer contactless delivery, allowing customers to pre-pay and tip their drivers for online orders to maintain proper social distancing and eliminate contact at the door.
The company has also been feeding frontline health care workers and community shelters since March 20, donating over 20,000 free slices and counting.
Pizza Pizza has more than 750 locations across Canada.
