Buddy’s Pizza Celebrates 71 Years with Giveaways

Home of the original Detroit-style pizza rewards dedicated customers

DETROIT (June 20, 2017) – Buddy’s Pizza Day returns Friday, June 23 with contests, giveaways and more. In celebration of the original Detroit-style pizza’s 71st anniversary, the first 71 customers at each location to ask for a commemorative poster of the original 6 Mile location created by local artist Paul Adams will receive one complimentary and have a chance to win free pizza for a year via the I Want Buddy’s contest.

“We’re 71 years strong, and we’re grateful to the community for supporting us all these years,” said Wes Pikula, Buddy’s Pizza vice president of operations. “Our legacy began in 1946 with the first square pizza and now our restaurant is being nationally recognized as the originator of ‘Detroit-style pizza.’ We know that wouldn’t be possible without the countless fans – locals and Motor City transplants – that’ve helped spread the word about our pizza. These giveaways are our way of saying thank you.”

Poster Giveaway
Created by local artist Paul Adams, the poster showcases a unique piece of Buddy’s Pizza history. The design depicts the original 6 Mile location in its heyday, buzzing with people playing bocce and enjoying square pizza.  Adams, a Detroit native and longtime Buddy’s fan, has worked as a commercial illustrator for more than 30 years and won numerous awards for his work from groups like the Creative Advertising Club of Detroit and other notable organizations. He will be at the original 6 Mile location signing posters from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Buddy’s Pizza Day.

“I Want Buddy’s” Contest
From June 23-25, patrons that post a picture of themselves enjoying the original Detroit-style pizza and tag Buddy’s Pizza on Facebook (@buddyspizza) or Instagram (@buddyspizzadet), will be entered in a drawing to receive free pizza for a year. Posts must include the caption “I Want Buddy’s.” One lucky fan will be randomly selected and announced on Monday, June 26.

Customer Appreciation Cards
As an added thank you to patrons, Buddy’s Pizza will once again offer customer appreciation cards for a limited time. Beginning on June 23, diners can drop in to any of the family-owned restaurant’s 11 locations to claim their card. Once a month cardholders will be eligible to receive a one-topping, 8-square Detroit-style pizza priced at a discounted rate of $7.10. Additional toppings may be added for 71 cents each. Appreciation cards will be available until June 30, or until supplies run out. No purchase is necessary.
