Gifting this festive season will be all about what comes to your door. The Dough Bros in Galway have decided to bring a slice of their award-winning pizza through every letterbox in the country, having created their very own DIY pizza kits during lockdown. With nationwide delivery, every person in Ireland can enjoy one of the best pizzas in Europe in the comfort of their own home.
Last month, The Dough Bros made history by being named in the prestigious 50 Top Pizzas in Europe for 2020, coming in at number 21. Only two pizzerias in Ireland featured on the list, and it was the first time the west of Ireland has featured.
While the DIY pizza kits have already proven popular with homes across Galway, they’re now being ordered as corporate Christmas gifts — a way for businesses to replace the traditional Christmas party in thanking their staff.
“There will be no Christmas parties or work get togethers this year, so it’s great to see that there can still be a way in which people can say thanks for what has been a very, very tough year for everyone,” said Ronan Greaney of The Dough Bros.
Galway’s Tribe Hospitality — which operates five coffee shops in the city — kicked off the gifting trend by treating their hard-working staff to The Dough Bros DIY Kits. “Their order of boxes was the start that has led to so many other businesses in Galway and around Ireland doing the very same for their people. We have had orders of up to 200 from larger organisations to five or 10 for the SMEs and independent retailers. It is so encouraging to businesses supporting local in a very real way. This cross-spend is what will keep our business here and open into 2021. It is vital that we all support each other by spending with each other, championing each other and doing everything we can to keep it local,” explained Eugene Greaney of The Dough Bros.
Kevin Nugent of Tribe Hospitality said, “We have been in a state of flux since March and our team of over 100 at Tribe Hospitality have been adapting, compromising and doing everything they have been asked to do and more in their jobs this year. We wanted to say thanks and to let every single one of them know how valued they are. This DIY Pizza Kit from The Dough Bros was perfect and we know the lads, we love their business and wanted to support them in a way that is going to keep them in business.”
The Dough Bros DIY Staff Appreciation Kits include two award-winning, restaurant-quality wood-fired pizzas, the best artisanal local Irish produce and dips, with step by step instructions to make the perfect pizza. Delivery is nationwide to individual locations or they can delivery one batch to a location of your choosing for you to distribute. Customisations available depending on quantity and requirements. These could include gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options, client’s own branded packaging, or inserting client marketing materials or merchandise in the boxes prior to shipping.
