Celebrate with Kids’ Pizza-Making Parties at Nick’s Pizza & Pub




Fun and education converge with kids’ parties at Nick’s Pizza & Pub

(CRYSTAL LAKE, IL; ELGIN, IL; February 22, 2011) – Bored with run-of-the-mill birthday parties and scout troop outings? Parents and troop leaders can take note that there is another “tasty” option: Kids’ Pizza Tours at Nick’s Pizza & Pub! Let Nick’s Pizza & Pub take care of the details for an event during which young pizza lovers can learn the inner workings of one of the busiest pizza companies in the United States.

The restaurants, conveniently located in Crystal Lake and Elgin, IL, offer tours of the kitchen, or what the team members refer to as the “Heart of the House.” After the tour, a Nick’s Pizza & Pub certified pizza maker will demonstrate how to make the signature thin-crust pizza, from the dough to the homemade tomato sauce to topping it with quality ingredients. Budding pizza makers then have the opportunity to create their own pizza, while parents can take a seat and relax. Also as part of the package, kids participate in a scavenger hunt and receive a bag of Nick’s Pizza & Pub’s famous peanuts to take home.

Tour packages include:

Kids’ Party Tours-Perfect for a birthday celebration! Rate is $9.95 per child, ages 6 to 11. (Parents and kids age 12 and up may order off the regular dine-in menu through their server.) Kids’ Scout Tours-Rate is $7.00 per child, ages 6 to 11. (Troop leaders and kids age 12 and up may order off the regular dine-in menu through their server.) Scout groups receive tax off their bill if they are able to present a tax ID letter.

No minimum required; maximum of 20 children. For more information or to schedule a kids’ tour, contact Special Events Department Leader Natasha Russo at 815.356.5559 or [email protected].
