To celebrate a big 2012 in which it doubled the number of stores it has, Jet's Pizza is giving away free slices later this month.
On Saturday, Jan. 26, Jet's will give away one free slice of its signature deep dish pizza to each customer between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. That deal is good at Jet's 12 Chicago area stores, including the one in Wheeling.
The local store is at 1065 E. Lake-Cook Road.
The first 50 people at each Jet's store will also receive a free Jet's T-shirt.
Jet’s doubled its Illinois presence in 2012 with seven new store openings (Arlington Heights, Champaign, Chicago, Joliet, Libertyville, Lombard and Wheaton), bringing the total number of Jet’s Pizzas in the state to 13.
Other Illinois locations are Darien, Naperville (north and south), Schaumburg, Skokie and Lake View. A Tinley Park location will open in early 2013.
“Chicago is an extremely competitive pizza market, but once people get a taste of Jet’s, they’re hooked,” said John Jetts, vice president of marketing. “Our Free Slice Day is a chance to celebrate the openings of our newest stores and introduce our product to people who haven’t tried it yet.”
Jet’s Detroit-style, square deep dish pizza with a crunchy crust is the pizza the Michigan-based chain is best known for. Jet’s prepares its dough frsh daily at each store.
Customers can “flavorize” their crust for free with a choice of eight flavors: butter, poppy seed, Parmesan, garlic, Cajun, Romano, sesame seed and Jet’s Turbo Crust.
