Pepe’s is as Passionate about our visitors as we are about making great pizza.
Perfect Pepe’s Pizza is what you count on when you bring your family in for lunch or dinner. One visit last week was a surprise to Russ Champlin, General Manager at Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana in Chestnut Hill, MA. In walked a gentleman carrying an authentic New England Patriots jersey. His name? Daniel Kraft.
Daniel Kraft is President of The Kraft Group, A business headquartered in Boston. The Kraft Group has a long history not only in its business success, but is also strongly committed to working in the community… through Kraft’s family foundation and yes, as owners of The New England Patriots, through the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation.
The Kraft family, through grass roots efforts, has helped local organizations benefit “from over $100 Million in philanthropy.” Their efforts are diverse as well. The organizations cover issues ranging from “education, healthcare, and women’s issues to youth sports.”
So, the jersey, What is that about? Daniel delivered the New England Patriots Jersey #1, signed by his father, Robert Kraft. Mr Kraft had the Jersey delivered to welcome Pepe’s Pizza to the Boston neighborhood. A very nice gesture. (And who can deny that pizza, and maybe a Peroni) make the game more fun.) A gesture we appreciate at Pepe’s.
