A California pizza place is offering free pizza, but there’s a catch — customers have to be willing to lock their phones away during their meal.
A Curry Pizza Company location in Fresno is running the promotion, which they call the “Talk to Each Other Discount.” When a group of at least four people comes into the restaurant, they have the option to lock their smartphones in one of the establishment’s lockers. If they can make it through the entire meal without checking their phone, they either get a free pizza to take home or one for their next visit.
Patrons also have the option of donating the pizza to the homeless.
The restaurant posted about the promotion on Facebook, saying, “Our goal is to get families/friends to stop using their phones while eating and talk to each other and communicate more. If you like you may receive a free large (per group) on your next visit (must be at least 24 hours) or you can donate your free large pizza to the needy. We donate pizzas to the homeless in downtown Fresno every month, so we would add your donated pizza along with the many others or you could do it yourself.”
