That’s Amore! Why Pizza Food Truck Catering is the Perfect Match For Your Wedding Reception

There are plenty of pizza food trucks offering classic and creative New York-style pizzas that’ll give you a delicious reason to say “I do!”

Weddings are centered around exchanging vows with the love of your life but, what’s supposed to be your big day is, perhaps, more so about the guest experience. After all, every bride and groom aims for their wedding to be remembered. 

But fear not, because the food you serve is the best way to ensure a memorable event. Sure, you could go the traditional route of an elaborate buffet (complete with those stuffy carving stations), but why not try something new? Something homemade, handmade, and not sitting under one of those blinding heating lamps? 

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t love a slice of pizza. And with New York serving as the pizza capital this side of Italy, there are plenty of pizza food trucks offering classic and creative New York-style pizzas that’ll give you a delicious reason to say “I do!”

ABEETZ: WESTCHESTER CO.’S BEST PIZZA ON WHEELS

Are you a pizza connoisseur who craves an authentic Margherita? Or, feeling adventurous for a bacon, egg, and cheese pizza with an everything bagel crust, a spin on the famous New York breakfast staple? 

Abeetz, named the “Best Food Truck in Westchester” by Westchester Magazine, brings authentic wood-fired, thin-crust pizza to the streets of New York using a gold-tiled brick oven imported straight from Italy. 

Founder and Westchester native David D’Amico’s passion for pizza led him to spend years traveling the world to find out what it takes to create the perfect pie. And thus Abeetz’s pizza truck was born, named after the way his native Italian grandparents pronounced the word ‘pizza.’ Specializing in weddings and other catered private events, Abeetz brings the party straight to you!

That’s why they’re able to cook personal pies in their pizza food truck in just 90 seconds! 

Plus, they’re serving more than pizzas with Italian fare like, delicious plates of pasta, fresh salads, and even homemade gelato. So, upgrade your wedding reception with true Neapolitan pizza that’s hot and fresh right out of the oven from Pizza Vita. Because “not all pizza is created equal.”

Three Times Food Trucks Created Immersive Brand Promotions

Brand promotions with food trucks are perfectly engineered to have customers actively engage with a brand’s identity and its core values.

Experiential marketing can bolster lasting connections between a brand and its target audience. According to a recent Forbes study, 65% of consumers say live events and product demonstrations helped them fully understand a product better. 

While there are a variety of ways to engage and make an impact, food trucks drive real buzz. 

Brand promotions with food trucks are perfectly engineered to have customers actively engage with a brand’s identity and its core values.

 

1. MASTERCARD’S ‘BETTER WAY TO PAY’ 

Companies use immersive brand promotions for many reasons, one of which is to educate and inform. Because there’s no better way for consumers to interact directly with a product than by testing it hands-on. 

As consumers seek new ways to enjoy more convenient ways to checkout for their everyday purchases, contactless payments have become the new way to pay, thanks to its increased speed, safety, and cleanliness. When Mastercard set out to promote its Tap and Go™ contactless technology, its goal was to teach and show busy New Yorkers how much easier commuting can be with a simple tap of their contactless Mastercard.

With the help of a branded food truck and knowledgeable brand ambassadors, Mastercard set-up interactive stations at three busy subway stations in Manhattan and invited consumers to test the speed of Tap & Go™, while also treating them to cuisine provided by James Beard award-winning chef JJ Johnson.

Along with chef Johnson’s delicious and complimentary fare, participants also received free Metrocards just for stopping by and checking out the benefits of learning about Mastercard’s Tap and Go™.

 

2. CAPTURING AUDIENCE ATTENTION AT ADVERTISING WEEK NYC

The world’s premier event for marketing, brand, advertising, and technology professionals: Advertising Week NYC is a networking experience featuring a week of seminars, pop-ups, and workshops attended by hundreds of thousands each year. 

With the industry’s biggest brands and brightest minds in attendance, it’s a tall order to stand out and capture audience attention. For a handful of savvy companies, immersive brand promotions were the key to piquing interest and yielding high demand.

Parked right in front of New York’s Lincoln Square Theater, FOX’s branded Simpson’s truck served hot cups of coffee and the show’s iconic pink-glazed donuts on branded cups and napkins. Nearby, Valassis’ “Make a Scene Caffeine” mobile bar offered hot and cold Nitro brewed coffee, while Ampersand and PubMatic treated attendees to mouth-watering BBQ, tacos, and burritos. And, Quad had dessert covered with a branded ice cream truck featuring flavors like “KPI Pistachio” and “Insight and Analytics Strawberry Jam,” creatively showcasing some of the services they provide.

 

3. THE NIGHT IS YOUNG WITH ADIDAS’ NITE JOGGER LAUNCH

Immersive brand promotions are designed to turn passive consumers into active participants. Upon launching its Nite Jogger footwear line, Adidas wanted to pay homage to its retro roots and bring to life the spirit of those ‘who don’t stop when the sun goes down.’

By hitting the streets of Brooklyn and New York’s Lower East Side, Adidas’ branded truck celebrated Nite Jogger’s launch with a one-of-a-kind experience after dark with brand ambassadors serving complimentary coffee, donuts, and hosting giveaways for excited night owls. 

Adidas’ immersive brand promotion not only engaged with its target audience but also captured the product’s essence; that it’s ‘never too late’ to hit the ground running and pursue your passion.

DRIVING IMMERSIVE BRAND PROMOTIONS WITH NEW YORK FOOD TRUCKS

Immersive brand promotions are experiences that don’t just communicate – they connect. Consumers want brands that speak to them and engage in a personal way. With food trucks targeting the senses, immersive brand promotions are the catalyst for striking B2C interactions that resonate even after an event’s over, helping to drive loyalty and increase sales.

From simple set-up to a simple transaction process, PayPal QR Codes will help you effortlessly and safely manage your business’ transactions.

While they’ve been around for decades, QR codes have been reinvented with a new purpose – to help small businesses across a variety of industries accept touch-free payments while helping to keep you, your employees, and your customers safe.

From simple set-up to a simple transaction process, PayPal QR Codes will help you effortlessly and safely manage your business’ transactions. 

But, how does it work? Well, it’s a lot easier than you might think. And, no special equipment is needed. Just a smartphone or tablet!

So, let’s take a look at how your business can get started today with PayPal QR Codes.

THE BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO QR CODES

“Quick Response” codes are a popular type of two-dimension barcode that encodes information and can be decoded by using a smartphone or tablet to reveal data that points to a particular website or application. 

QR codes have come a long way since they were first designed in the early 90s for the Japanese auto industry. Nearly 30 years later, QR codes are used for inventory management, marketing and advertising, education, and (of course) mobile payments. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, health and safety has become a priority for businesses across the globe, and QR codes have become increasingly popular. Today, QR codes are commonly added to:

  • Payment options for businesses looking to offer a touch-free experience to customers
  • Table cards to direct customers to digital menus
  • Product packaging, allowing consumers to get detailed product information
  • Business cards, allowing people to save contact information
  • Brand advertisements, allowing consumers to visit a website and/or register for an event
  • Invitations, allowing guests to open a venue’s location on their smartphone’s “maps” application

QR codes are so easy to use, virtually anyone can create and use them for their personal or professional benefit. When it comes to your business, PayPal QR Codes is a touch-free payment solution that lets your customers scan your QR code with ease sending you quick payment safely, securely and at a distance. 

 

GETTING STARTED WITH QR CODES

Propelling your business with QR codes is easier than you might think. Once you’ve set up your business account and downloaded the PayPal app, you can create your own QR code through the PayPal Business app (available in the Apple Store and Google Play) or PayPal’s website.  

And… that’s it! Now you can share your unique QR code that’s free and never expires with your customers!

To receive payments, all your customers have to do is open the PayPal app and select the “Scan to Pay” option, scan your unique QR code, enter the amount due, and click “Send Now;” just like a traditional bank account, credit or debit card transaction. Once your customer is redirected to their confirmation screen, you’ll see the completed transaction in your PayPal app. 

HOW TO GET YOUR QR CODE NOTICED

There are a variety of creative ways customers can interact with your PayPal QR Codes as you sell your products and services. 

  1. If you have a physical location, showcasing a printable QR code and posting it in your store window will let customers know transactions are safe and easy. 
  2. Make social distancing a priority with your QR code posted at your store’s checkout counter, allowing customers to pay without close contact to you and/or your employees. 
  3. If your business offers curbside, drive-thru, and/or delivery service, attaching your QR code to packages/products for pickup makes transactions fast and efficient. 
  4. Let your customers show their appreciation for you and your team by using your QR code in lieu of accepting cash for tips. 

GET PAID AND STAY SAFE WITH PAYPAL QR CODES FOR YOUR BUSINESS

As businesses around the world look to new and innovative ways to keep their doors open, while keeping the health and safety of their employees and customers top-of-mind, PayPal QR Codes are the fast and easy way to handle transactions and accept touch-free payments in-person. 

Whether your business is brick-and-mortar, online or both, you can get paid and have peace of mind. So, start scanning today!
