AKADO names pizza contest winners

AKADO-Stolitsa ZAO has announced the winners of AKADO.Pizza, a contest among pizza restaurants in Moscow and the region, in which the best pizza chefs showcased their expertise in preparing pizza, by far the most popular urban food in the world.

“The AKADO.Pizza project was fun and a success,” said Mospizza CEO Andrei Stelmashenko. “It’s not so important who wins. It’s more important to network with true pizza lovers and find out what they think of our pizza. It is a known fact that real pizza only happens in Italy, where government inspectors audit all pizza restaurants to make sure the chefs stay true to the original Neapolitan recipe. But my colleagues and I, we’re out to prove that good, even excellent pizza also exists in Russia, and that our service level is very high.” “Pizza was not a random choice for this competition,” explained AKADO press spokesman Dmitry Zakharov. “Like AKADO services, pizza contains numerous ingredients. Also like our services, pizza is an egalitarian product anyone can afford. And everyone is free to customize their pizza to their individual taste preferences. AKADO boasts a long thread of meaningful social networking projects, including such high-profile events as the Can’t Say No to Those Eyes photo competition and AKADO.Graffiti festival. But AKADO management claims the company has more projects in the pipeline. In both Moscow and the region, people stand to enjoy many more interesting AKADO PR events. For three months, 50,000 pizza eaters were asked to grade the culinary prowess of the chefs, asked to cook AKADO brand pizza according to original recipes. Some 100,000 AKADO pizzas were baked, in the estimate of the contest owners. More than 300 experts were able to judge the contest and vote for the best pizza restaurants after they had registered on http://pizza.akado.ru. Over 20 pizza restaurants took part, but only 6 made it to the shortlist: Mospizza, Pizza Stolitsa, Pizzabar, People’s Food, Tempura and Citypizza. The three winners – restaurants that have baked the best AKADO pizzas – will be named in an award ceremony later this afternoon. More winners will be selected in individual categories such as The Most Creative Pizza Restaurant, Best Service, and The Friendliest Pizza Restaurant. The judges – most active contributors to http://pizza.akado.ru — will also be rewarded. Ten contest participants having sampled and expressed their opinion on the most pizzas, service and delivery at the website will receive well deserved prizes. AKADO has prepared a great variety of gifts and a very special prize: free annual subscription to the AKADO Internet+TV service package. “The AKADO.Pizza project was fun and a success,” said Mospizza CEO Andrei Stelmashenko. “It’s not so important who wins.
