KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — In honor of National Pizza Month this October, Pilot Flying J is giving customers a “slice of the pie”–pizzeria-quality gourmet pizza–for free. From now until October 31, the travel center operator will give away a free slice of PJ Fresh Pizza when customers show an online coupon available from the company’s Facebook page.
Each PJ Fresh Pizza is made with 100% real mozzarella cheese, and its dough is braided on-site by hand. PJ Fresh Pizzas are also prepared with a variety of toppings–from pepperoni and sausage to an array of vegetables–ensuring customers will find a recipe that meets their preference. Additionally, it will make special, limited-time recipes available such as the Cordon Bleu Chicken pizza made with Alfredo sauce, Swiss cheese, chicken and ham.
“There’s a common misconception that pizza options available at convenience stores involve frozen, bland pies, but not all pizzas are created equal, and even fewer are ‘Unexpectedly Awesome’,” said Ken Parent, COO of Pilot Flying J. “Throughout this month, we invite drivers to stop by a Pilot or Flying J location and experience the pizzeria-quality of PJ Fresh Pizza for themselves free of charge with the online coupon.”
To help introduce Pilot Flying J’s quality pizza offerings, NASCAR stock car racer Michael Annett and his Pilot Flying J race team will turn the Pilot Travel Center in Lincoln, Ala., into a pit stop for customers on October 22. The race team will pump gas for cars, diesel for trucks and pass out free samples of PJ Fresh Pizza to customers.
Annett’s 46 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet will also be onsite, and will feature a special pizza car wrap in advance of the Fred’s 250 at the Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Ala. NASCAR fans coming out to Talladega Superspeedway can also stop by the PJ Fresh Pizzeria outside of the track on October 23 and October 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. to enjoy free pizza and other giveaways, including road trip gift baskets.
PJ Fresh Pizza is available at more than 250 Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers across North America. To join the conversation about PJ Fresh Pizza and share personal experiences, follow #UnexpectedlyAwesome.
