February 10, 2010, Toronto – This past Monday night at the Canadian Association of Foodservice Professionals' 36th Annual Top Management Gala, Pizza Nova was given the prestigious Hans Bueschkens Award of Merit.
The award is presented annually to a company that has contributed in a significant way to the well being of the community it serves. It honours outstanding service, dedication and social advancement of the Canadian hospitality industry.
Since presenting its first Bueschkens Award two decades ago, Foodservice and Hospitality has honoured a wide spectrum of leading companies including McDonald's Restaurants, Fairmont Hotels and Tim Hortons. Hans Bueschkens was one of Canada's greatest chefs. Throughout his extensive culinary career he was instrumental in giving his time, love, passion and soul to promote the foodservice industry around the globe.
The award was accepted by Domenic Primucci, vice president of Pizza Nova, who acknowledged the drive behind Pizza Nova's continued and unwavering commitment to giving back. "Our business began in 1963, and from one location we've since grown and evolved over 46 years to represent more than 120 locations in Southern Ontario. Really and truly we all know that we'd be nothing without each and every one of our customers; individuals, living within the communities in which we serve."
In the past ten years Pizza Nova has raised over $700,000 for Variety-The Children's Charity through their annual "That's Amore Pizza for Kids" event that takes places each year on the second Tuesday in May. They have also raised funds for organizations such as UNICEF, the Hospital for Sick Children and the United Way.
