Greenville Avenue Pizza Co. intros special pie to benefit Cafe Momentum


Greenville Avenue Pizza Company and Café Momentum are partnering on a new pizza promo that will benefit the downtown Dallas-based non-profit that provides year-long, paid internships to at-risk youths who have tangled with the juvenile justice system.
           

Café Momentum’s interns rotate through all aspects of the restaurant, learning culinary skills in addition to life and social skills to help them transition into the next phase of their lives. Greenville Avenue Pizza Company teamed with Café Momentum to teach pizza skills and designed a contest to award the best pizza creation.

That pie, a garlic butter-brushed crust topped with sausage, bacon, Canadian bacon and jalapeño, is now on GAPCO’s menu, where it will be offered through November for $24 (large) and $19 (small.) GAPCO says it will donate 15% of the sales from that pizza to Cafe Momentum, with an extra 5% boost on launch date, October 26.

“We’ve long admired the work that Chad and his team are doing at Café Momentum, so we were excited and honored to have the opportunity to get involved,”GAPCo owner Sammy Mandell said in a release announcing the benefit. “We met so many talented young men and women and tasted a lot of great pizzas. I have no doubt that many of the interns will go on to do great things, both in restaurant kitchens and in life.”

“Sammy and his team support the Dallas community in so many ways,” said Chad Houser, the founder and executive chef of Cafe Momentum. “It was a natural fit for Café Momentum to partner with GAPCo on this initiative. I’m proud of our interns, and I hope that our featured pizza will help spread the message about our program. For those who haven’t yet experienced Café Momentum, we invite you all in to eat a great meal and see what we’re doing to help these remarkable kids reach their full potential.”
           

The Café Momentum Pizza is available now through November 30 at GAPCo’s Greenville Avenue and Peavy Road locations.
