FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Felice’s 1 Year, 1 Dollar Celebration
Felice’s Roman Style Pizza Commemorates a Year of Operations by Providing a Dynamite Deal
CHICAGO, February 21, 2013 —The Loyola community will wish the bright red storefront seen at 6439 N. Sheridan Road, better known as Felice’s Roman Style Pizza, a happy first birthday at the end of this month.
For an evening of celebration, from 4–9 p.m. on February 25, Felice’s will drop normal prices on a customer favorite pizza option, all drinks, and the beloved sweet treat, bombas, to $1 each. Apart from the afternoon $1 deal, Felice’s staff will hand out free samples of a brand new pizza all day. Modeled after a traditional, old-world Italian recipe, the pizza samples will showcase Felice’s dedication to its Italian roots and convention.
Patrick Hendrickson, president of Felice’s, supports the new recipe and the initiatives that Felice’s is taking towards maintaining their commitment to Roman-style pizza. “Felice’s has made us proud. We’ve brought Roman-style pizza to Loyola, but this year we’re really going to focus on engaging the community, as well as the students, in this unique pizza experience,” said Hendrickson.
Currently, Hendrickson works closely with the 40-person team that keeps Felice’s running smoothly. Each week, the administrative team meets to inspire one another with new ideas to keep Felice’s fresh and up to date. The biggest draw at Felice’s is novelty. Pizza artisans are encouraged to continue recipe development, suggest new marketing tactics, and participate in all aspects of growing the business. “Originality is a part of Felice’s. We add our creative college twists to classics and that sets us apart,” said sophomore Kevin Koprowski, a Felice’s pizza artisan. “Making a pizza is like writing a paper; everyone will do it differently since we all have our own style and know what we like. That’s what we share with our community.”
For the past year, Felice’s has been committed to providing the student body with a new and fresh dining option. Looking ahead, the staff will continue its dedicated service to the student body to keep Felice’s the best late-night dining choice near campus.
