In celebration of its three-year anniversary, Aurelio’s Pizza Marietta is offering anniversary specials for $20.11, as well as free ice cream or cookies for dessert. Additionally, Aurelio’s is hosting a Facebook contest and one lucky winner will win free Aurelio’s pizza for a year. Entry forms are available on the Aurelio’s Pizza Marietta Facebook page.  In addition to other celebratory fun, a balloon artist will be working balloon magic for the kids.

About Aurelio’s
With a history as rich and entrenched in the community as the pizza it’s famous for, the very first Aurelio’s restaurant opened on Ridge Road in Homewood, IL as the pride and joy of Joseph A. Aurelio, Jr. who decided to give it a go as a restaurateur at the age of 26. With its legendary “old oven” dating back to 1959 in its Homewood location, Aurelio’s was the first suburban pizzeria in the United States and helped to launch pizza into the American lexicon. Since that time, Aurelio’s has become one of Chicagoland’s claims to fame. And, transplanted Chicagoans all over the map have helped to bring their favorite pizzeria franchise to 41 cities across six states, growing a strong fan base for the taste of Aurelio’s.
Franchise owner Paul Vitt has been eating Aurelio’s Pizza since it opened in 1959. Paul’s lifelong love affair with the iconic pizza began when Aurelio’s founder Joe Aurelio Jr. offered Homewood, IL little leaguers sausage pizza coupons for home runs. Paul got lucky enough to hit quite a few. Growing up Aurelio’s was his hangout place, his brothers even worked there. As an adult with a family, Paul and his wife lived in Tinley Park, IL where Aurelio’s was his family’s go-to place for all get togethers, birthdays and graduations. Paul’s parents had an Aurelio’s pizza night, Monday. His was Tuesday after his men’s basketball league. And, he and wife’s, Thursday. When the Vitts decided to relocate to the Atlanta area, eventually, they decided to become restaurateurs—the Aurelio’s seed planted by Paul’s mother and brother. When they opened June 2011 in East Cobb as the first and only Aurelio’s Pizza in Georgia, Aurelio’s fans from the greater Atlanta area flocked the restaurant and they’ve just kept coming.
