Academy Awards attendees rewarded with more than golden statues

What do Edgar Martirosyan, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt and Ellen DeGeneres all have in common with the FRN? They are all fans of FRN participating dining location Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria. A very surprised Edgar, co-owner of the Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria franchise, was led onstage by Ellen at the Academy Awards to deliver pizza to a room full of hungry stars. Ellen had ordered pizza from Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria for her famous friends simply because she is a fan; she and her staff frequently order from the Big Mama’s & Papa’s Burbank franchise.

But, of course, we couldn’t help but wonder what the total of Ellen’s Fuel Rewards® savings would have been that night. If Ellen is an FRN Member and enrolled in the FRN Dining program (and  we don’t know if she is), she would have earned 40¢/gal in Fuel Rewards savings for just the tip she gave Edgar when he appeared on her show the day after the Oscars. She ordered 20 pizzas for the impromptu pizza soiree. If we estimate $25 per pizza, the pizza bill would total $500 which would earn 50¢/gal in Fuel Rewards savings. That’s a pretty fast way to earn 90¢/gal!

So next time you’re planning an impromptu pizza party for your friends, make sure you plan to order from an FRN dining participant. And just FYI, there are 20 Big Mama’s and Papa’s Pizzeria stores in the Los Angeles area, and most are FRN Dining program participants.
