Pizza jerks

Calzone with up to 2 toppings for only $5 today until 4pm! X-mas is next week, be a pal and give a Pizza Jerks Gift Certificate!

Why it works: This Tweet was posted right before Christmas when money is tight for a lot of customers. Five bucks is a great motivator, but chips and a drink will bring the check total up. We love the idea of gift certificates, and this Tweet puts the idea of lunch and a quick gift into customers’ heads.

Stone Hearth Pizza

Office holiday party? Pizza, pasta, organic salads? Yep, we got that. Give @Stone_Hearth a call for your catering needs-- big and small.

Why it works: There’s always an office manager who doesn’t quite get things done on time or a boss who decides to be generous at the last minute. This Tweet is for them –– the Scrooges and procrastinators who need a fast idea for a company luncheon. And Stone Hearth fits the bill perfectly. This Tweet only needed a phone number for maximum impact.
