Topper’s Pizza was featured on Food Network Canada’s “Giving You The Business,” a brand new Canadian original series where an unsuspecting employee is given the chance to become an owner of a Topper’s Pizza franchise.

The episode took place June 24 and aired again on June 25. During the episode, four previously selected Topper’s Pizza managers who believe they are contributing to a corporate video will participate in a variety of fun, but unorthodox customer requests that are ultimately pizza-related challenges.

At the show’s finale, Keith and Kelly Toppazzini, brothers and owners of the Topper’s Franchise Company who have been secretly watching the performance of the managers all along, will select one of the four managers to be given a chance to become an owner of a Topper’s Pizza franchise. “This was such a fun experience,” says Keith Toppazzini, president of Topper’s Franchise Company in a news release. “Kelly and I were so impressed by the way the store managers handled the challenges. It was funny to watch at times, but we were even more fascinated by how committed our managers are to the Topper’s Pizza brand and to giving their customers the best possible service, no matter how outrageous the demand.”

“We’re very excited that one of Topper’s hardest working managers is given the chance to become an owner of his or her own franchise,” continued Kelly Toppazzini, chairman and CEO. “This person truly deserves this opportunity and as a company we are extremely optimistic that we chose the most qualified person to represent Topper’s Pizza and our brand.”

To celebrate its network debut, Topper’s Pizza is offered a viewing party special called ‘Giving You the Deal’ while the premiere of “Giving You the Business” was playing on Food Network Canada. During both airings of the show on June 24, customers could order a large specialty pizza for $10, a savings of $9.40 (pick-up only), with no code needed. An additional promotion for existing and new Topper’s Rewards members ran all of June offering prizes from free pizza for a year to Topper’s Pizza gift cards.

“Family friendly business and values are at the core of Topper’s Pizza, so it is especially gratifying for us to reward a current manager, someone already a member of our business family, with the chance to become an owner of his or her own franchise,” says Keith Toppazzini.
