If you’re working Super Bowl LII shuttling football fans around town, take note: Toppers Pizza’s got your back. The restaurant is offering gift certificates for medium pizzas to any Uber, Lyft or taxi driver in the area. Drivers can visit either the Bloomington (7821 Portland Avenue South) or St. Paul (1154 Grand Avenue) Toppers Pizza location and pick up the certificates during business hours Thursday, January 25 through Thursday, February 1*. 

 “Our pizza restaurants are locally owned and run by people who love the Twin Cities area and take great pride in the quality of the pizza they deliver throughout the area. So, we wanted to support other residents who will be taking to the roads and creating a safe and fun environment for everyone ahead of the big game,” says Scott Gittrich, founder and president of Toppers Pizza.  

According to the Minnesota Super Bowl Committee, 1 million people will flock to the Minneapolis area for professional football’s “Big Game” on February 4. Toppers Pizza franchisees Brad Vinton and Dan Ogiba’s staff of more than 100 team members across their six Toppers Pizza locations are gearing up for the influx in traffic and orders. 

*Before receiving a certificate for a free medium pizza, individuals must show proof that they drive for Uber, Lyft, or any taxi or ride-sharing service in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area. The deal is available while supplies last on a first come, first serve basis.
