In 1966, two cab drivers grew tired of sitting in traffic and decided to open a pizzeria. This year, The Original Gino’s East of Chicago celebrates the 50th anniversary as a family brand serving their famous deep dish pizza across 10 Chicagoland locations, in Wisconsin, Texas and Mexico City, and with shipping nationwide!
To give back to the community and to loyal customers, Gino’s East will kick off a yearlong celebration, including the following:
Customer Celebration Days: Every Tuesday
To thank their loyal customers, Gino’s East will host weekly Celebration Days at participating locations.

• 50 cent wings all day (restrictions may apply per location)
• 50 cent minis (mini deep dish cheese pizzas) during lunch (11 a.m. – 2 p.m.)

Fifty Years, Fifty Reasons Campaign
Family-owned Gino’s East is partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for the Fifty Years, Fifty Reasons campaign which provides guests the opportunity to donate to support seven different Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals including Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
Beginning May 10 through December 2016, each Gino’s East location will be assigned a hospital that will benefit from 100 percent of the donations. For every $5,000 raised per hospital, Gino’s East will provide a pizza party for families at that hospital. Guests have the option to make a donation right on their bill, or through a separate transaction, and each guest will receive a thank-you receipt, which can be used for tax-deductible purposes.
Gino’s East will also host a fundraising event in October, National Pizza Month, as a part of the 50 Years, 50 Reasons campaign.Read More
