Deep Reminiscing On National Deep Dish Day

Do you remember the first time you discovered #DeepDish? Do you remember that cheese oozing off the crust? Do you remember that bite you took that made your taste buds sing?

Well our Cheesy Chicks sure remember. As we are continuing our celebrations, for National Deep Dish Day, we asked them these 3 questions:

1. What's your favorite deep dish memory?

2. What’s your favorite deep dish pizza?

3. How are you celebrating National Deep Dish Pizza Day?

Cheesy Chick Sara:

Omggg my mom still has a baby picture of me after trying deep dish for my VERY FIRST TIME! I was probably about one year old. As you can see, all smiles.

My favorite type of deep dish? Just plain old cheese!

I’m celebrating #NDDPD at Gino’s eating...

OUR PASSION FOR OUR PLANET DIGS DEEP

At Gino’s, our passion for deep dish is as wide as Lake Michigan is deep (922 feet to be exact)! And, we know that our passion can only be sustained by a healthy planet.

­

We’re doing our part to be more environmentally sustainable by partnering with Alliance For The Great Lakes, a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect the largest freshwater resource in the world.

Our pizza might make your mouth water, but these stats will make your jaw drop:

Get this: According to the EPA’s blog at EPA.gov, “Much of the plastic ever made still exists. Worldwide, as many as one trillion plastic bags are used each year and less than 5 percent of plastic is recycled.” And, as if that weren’t enough, “In the United States, [...] we use over 380 billion plastic bags and wraps yearly, requiring 12 million barrels of oil to create.”

And, have you thought about plastic straws? Straws may not seem like such a big deal, but check out this number: According to TheLastPlasticStraw.Org, our consumption of straws in the U.S. is “enough straws to wrap around the Earth’s circumference 2.5 times a day!” At Gino’s, we are also lessening our footprint by holding back on plastic straws. From now on, plastic straws will only be available by request. In the meantime, we are also looking into compostable straws as an option for our guests.

Following our new #DeepAF ad campaign, we want everyone to know that we also #DigDeep and we’re putting our money where our mouth is. We have committed to donating $25,000 to Alliance For The Great Lakes this year and plan to raise these funds primarily through reusable bag sales in our restaurants and fundraiser events. We’re also on our way to calling it quits on plastic bags at our stores altogether. Additionally, we have added to our pledge by switching many of our disposable containers to recycled products.

Their Board of Directors represent a wide range of interests and expertise from around the Great Lakes region. Their organization’s mission is “to protect and restore the Great Lakes for people and wildlife, forever,” and we couldn’t be more excited to have a hand in their mission!

Today we are celebrating International Women’s Day, and what better way than to give you the deep dish on Gino’s Cheesy Chicks?

Pizza is life. We’re basically a cheesy sisterhood.”

We asked our cheesy chicks the following three questions:

1. How long have you been working at Gino’s East and why do you love working there?

2. Can you share with us some of your cheesiest moments?

3. What does it take to be a cheesy chick?

Here’s what they had to say:

Darien, a new Gino’s Chick, has been with us since July and is deep into the Gino’s culture saying, “I love working at Gino’s because pizza is life and I love my team, we’re like cheesy sisters.” At net...
