Burlington, Kentucky, April 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Snappy Tomato Pizza Company launched their partnership with the Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road and Western Ohio, offering a FREE box of Girl Scout Cookies with a Snappy Tomato Pizza purchase of $25 or more. The partnership answers the call to assist the Girl Scouts in reducing their surplus cookie inventory due to their halt of all direct cookie sales, after the outbreak of COVID-19. With the purchase of 2,400 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies (200 cases), Snappy Tomato Pizza is joyously taking this opportunity to not only help the Girl Scouts, but to show their appreciation for all of their customers who continue to support their local Snappy Tomato during the pandemic.

Snappy Tomato Pizza serves fresh, homemade, award-winning pizza and Italian specialties across Southern Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. Known for their complete line of The Beast Pizzas, signature Snapperoni and Baked Potato Pizzas and the All You Can Eat Pizza Buffet, Snappy Tomato Pizza restaurants are family and community favorites. Because of the restrictions during the fight against the Coronavirus, all Snappy Tomato Pizza locations remain focused on feeding families through delivery and carryout only.

“The moment we heard about the Girl Scouts’ dilemma with their inability to sell cookies door-to-door we knew we needed to help,” said Andy Ritter, Director of Marketing for Snappy Tomato Pizza, “…the leadership attributes fostered through the Girl Scouts program are the same qualities that make for a good community citizen - perhaps one of these young ladies will be our next Snappy Tomato employee or franchisee?”

Many of the regions served by Snappy Tomato Pizza also host Western Ohio and Northern Kentucky Girl Scout troops, and this cookie giveaway capitalizes on this duality. Over half of our 47 Snappy Tomato locations will take part in gifting a FREE box of Girl Scout cookies with every Snappy Tomato purchase of $25 or more*. These 24 select Snappy Tomato locations include Southwest Ohio, Southeast Indiana and Northern Kentucky.

Each participating Snappy Tomato pizzeria will have a variety of Girl Scout cookies including Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties and Lemonades. One box of Girl Scout cookies (flavors to be selected at random) will be included with every qualifying order starting on Thursday, April 16, 2020 and the promotion will run while supplies last.

“It is with great appreciation that we thank the teams at Snappy Tomato Pizza for purchasing cases of our Girl Scout cookies, and it is outstanding to see Snappy Tomato pay it forward by sharing our boxes of cookies as gifts to their patrons. Thinking “out-of-the-cookie-box” with actions of caring such as these are the essence of what we strive to instill in our young ladies. Our Girl Scout sisterhood thanks Snappy Tomato for setting such a wonderful example,” said Haleigh McGraw, Communications Director, Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road.

Through Girl Scout cookie sales, these young ladies learn goal setting, financial literacy, communication and entrepreneurial skills. Programs throughout the year are funded by annual Girl Scout cookie sales, including outdoor adventures, educational exploration and meaningful activities to improve and support their communities. Ohio and Kentucky cookie sale revenues support multiple camp properties, provide financial assistance to an estimated 4,000 girls, training for over 6,000 volunteers and numerous Girl Scout activities of learning, giving and caring throughout the year.

If you would like to join Snappy Tomato in their support of the Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road, there are still opportunities to purchase Girl Scout cookies, with a minimum of five cases per order.

Norton Outdoor Advertising has provided promotional billboard space to support the cause as well. Please share photos of your pizza and cookies on social media with the hashtag #SnappyGirlScouts.
