Great news! Pizza lovers will become overjoyed to hear that Pure Pizza in Morningside is giving away sourdough pizzas for free until the end of January as a generous act of kindness. The incentive has been created to help Edinburghers combat the cost of living crisis, as well as provide more hours to the takeaway staff and increase wages.
Owner Marc Wilkinson has been thinking about how he can give back to the community, and this is a truly heart-warming way to do so. He hopes to not only put smiles on people’s faces but also to keep one of the quietest months of the year steady for his employees and supplies. Basically, everyone wins in this situation.
The owner has also mentioned that people from all over the world have already been offering to support his business with donations, and the overall response from the locals is conceivably positive.
By giving away pizzas, the estimated cost for the business could be as high as £12,000, and Marc is happy to lend people a hand as well as not having to re-hire staff in February. He also explained that the oven will be on regardless, so might as well fill up with some pizzalicious goodness instead of having it half empty.
How to claim the free pizza offer?
To claim a free pizza, Pure Pizza will be putting their trust in the goodness of people and not ask for proof of address, even though the offer is only for people who actually live in Edinburgh. All visitors have to do is provide a valid phone number, and turn up to Morningside Drive outside of peak hours between 5:30pm and 8:30pm. There will be a queueing system with tokens as its already been a hit, so just relax and wait for your pizza to get baked.
Marc Wilkinson is already a local legend, and all he hopes is for Edinburghers to pass on acts of kindness in their own ways. After all, kindness always has a ripple effect, and it just keeps growing.
