WATERTOWN, NY- For the second year in a row, two local restaurants are teaming up with businesses from around the community to salute our soldiers. CiCis Pizza and Cold Stone Creamery, located at 1222 Arsenal Street in Stateway Plaza, are opening their doors on Tuesday March 10 and offering free pizza buffets and ice cream creations to all active duty and retired military personnel and their families.
“We are so proud of our military and thankful for the role they play in our community. This event is our small way of doing something nice for them. No strings attached,” said CiCi’s Pizza owner Kirk Gilchrist. No purchase is necessary to participate in this event. Soldiers and their families simply need to bring in their military ID card, get in line and enjoy bottomless pizza and an ice cream of their choice.
“This event is made possible because of the help of several local businesses who love our soldiers just as much we do,” said CiCi’s Pizza and Cold Stone Creamery co-owner Christopher Hopper. The list of businesses who contributed to this event includes: Newzjunky, The Treehouse Hourly Daycare, The Preserve at Autumn Ridge, The Watertown Daily Times, Sprig Music, Stuart McCreary, Attorney at Law, and New Life Christian Church. “We are asking everyone to support these businesses and pass it on,” says Hopper.
This is the second year in a row that CiCi’s Pizza and Cold Stone Creamery in Watertown have hosted this event. “We had a pretty packed house last year and are expecting the same thing this year,” said Joel Berthet, CiCi’s Pizza General Manager. “Its going to be a busy day but we are excited to be serving our soldiers. They make so many sacrifices for us and this is our small way of giving back,” added Casey Seawright, Cold Stone Creamery General Manager.
