  • The first 50 walk-in customers who make a $10 minimum purchase on opening day will win free food for a year.*
  • The first 500 customers get a scratch-off for a chance at free food for a year. Every other scratch-off ticket earns a free medium or Triple Topperstix.
  • From Feb. 3 to Feb. 10, the grand opening celebrations continue with a “Buy One Pizza, Get One Free” Offer.

“In a city known for its love of pizza, Toppers is growing our Chicagoland fanbase quickly with our fresh, innovative and crave-worthy pizzas,” said Mac Malchow, VP of Development for Toppers. “With committed owners like Numan on our team, Toppers will keep growing and bringing big, bold flavors across the country!”
