Utopia Communications Inc. Named AOR for Operation Pizza Surge

June 8, 2009

EATONTOWN, N.J., June 8 /PRNewswire/ — Utopia Communications is proud to announce that it has been named AOR for Operation Pizza Surge, a unique effort from the non-profit Pizza4Patriots organization to deliver 28,000 deep-dish pizzas to our troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq in time for July 4.

This record breaking event was conceived by Ret. Master Sergeant Mark Evans of Elk Grove Village, IL. In 2008, Evans’ 15-year-old son Kent asked if there was a way to deliver freshly-frozen, Chicago-style pizzas to service men and women stationed throughout Iraq in time for July Fourth Independence Day Celebrations. The original idea was to send 300 pizzas, but as word spread throughout the country that number grew to more than 2,000. The response was bigger than anyone had imagined. So much so that Evans managed to ship another 2,000 pizzas out for this year’s Super Bowl.

Now, Evans has a unique new challenge. Operation Pizza Surge will be the World’s Largest Pizza Party (according to the Guinness Book of World Records). To pull it off, Evans has teamed up with DHL, the world’s leading global express delivery and logistics company, to fill up an entire donated cargo jet with as many as 28,000 ready-to-bake, freshly frozen pizzas from Uno Chicago Grill(R), the inventor of Chicago’s original deep-dish pizza.
