Garlic Jim’s to celebrate favorite teachers

Few things are more important to local families than great schoolteachers and great-tasting pizza. Garlic Jim’s stores in Kirkland and Juanita are honoring both during the month of May with a pizza party giveaway for a deserving teacher and his or her classroom. The winning teacher will be awarded the prize on National Pizza Party Day, May 18.

“We can’t think of a better way to say thank you to our local school teachers and families,” said Dwayne Northrop, president and CEO of Garlic Jim’s. “Garlic Jim’s sponsors National Pizza Party Day every year and we are always blown away by how passionate our customers are about their school teachers. We’re proud to honor teachers for their accomplishments and hard work.”

Customers can vote at the Garlic Jim’s locations in Kirkland (8431 122nd Ave. N.E.) and Juanita (9758 N.E. 119th Way) for the finalist they want to win the National Pizza Party Day Contest through May 16. The winning teachers do not need to have their parties on National Pizza Party Day; rather they can host their parties at times most convenient to the schedules of their classrooms. Garlic Jim’s is also rewarding the nominator of the winning entry with a medium specialty pizza gift certificate.

The Garlic Jim’s sponsored National Pizza Party Day is held annually the third Friday of May as an opportunity to celebrate pizza and its importance to America. For more information about Garlic Jim’s, visit
