Incredible Pizza Raises Money for Children’s HospitalFriday, 19 January 2018
Incredible Pizza Raises Money for The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical CenterThe Event: This winter, our Warr Acres, OK Incredible Pizza location partnered with The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center. We held a Round-Up campaign from November 20, 2017 through December 31, 2017. Guests were asked to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar, and all proceeds went back to the children’s hospital. We hosted a kickoff party on November 18th, 2017, before the campaign, and several Make-A-Wish families were invited to come to Incredible Pizza to celebrate. At the kickoff party, our incredible employees learned about all the things that the Children’s Hospital does for children in the area, and were able to meet and hear the stories of some of the strong and brave children who are receiving treatment.
“The employees were very supportive, very helpful and seemed to enjoy themselves as much as the families. This event holds a personal place in my heart. I’m also a Make-A- Wish mom. The families couldn’t stop saying how much fun they had and how grateful they were for our partnership. Lots of emotions were shared by all. There were some tears and lots of laughter. It was an incredibly successful kickoff. It’s an honor to be a part of such a special occasion.” -Regina Best, Fairgrounds General ManagerThe Results: After the kickoff party began the campaign. We raised $333 in one month for the children’s hospital, and 63% of that was raised by just one person! Our incredible cashier Nydirhya Pittman was very diligent in raising donations, and made sure that every guest she encountered was educated on the cause. Great job, Nydirhya! We are so proud of her diligence that we are awarding her with some Incredible Pizza swag. You go, girl! We are SO thankful to our guests for being willing to donate! The store has a goal to double their numbers later this year when we hold the campaign again.
National Adoption MonthWednesday, 29 November 2017
“Adoption is a wonderful opportunity for families looking for children as well as those children who are in need of families and loving families. It’s not just an opportunity for them for a better life but it’s also an opportunity for families to just build a bond and a connection.” – Natalie Potvin
IPC FoundationFriday, 29 January 2016
The Incredible Pizza Company Foundation (IPC Foundation) was founded in the Fall of 2007 by Incredible Pizza Company (IPC) owners, Rick and Cheryl Barsness. They founded the IPC Foundation with the sole purpose to donate money to missionaries and orphanages across the nation. Two specific examples of very large donations through the IPC Foundation include; $24,000 to the Convoy of Hope, a non profit organization and $6500 to Care to Learn, a fund managed by the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools.

Start Off Right: Give BackWednesday, 6 January 2016
We can’t say how thankful we are to be a company that is able to give so much back to our community. Each year we give thousands of dollars in prize donations, game cards, and sponsorships back to various non profits organizations within our community.
Our vision statement states, “Families and friends come together at America’s Incredible Pizza Company for incredible activities and fun memories, bringing them back again and again. We are actively involved with children providing a positive influence in their lives. Who we hire is the most important decision we make.We promote a strong, fun work ethic, encouraging the development of good moral character and values. We provide a fun environment for training, developing, recognizing and rewarding our employees with the goal of promoting from within. We maintain our reputation as the industry leader with unique and innovative ideas for bringing families together through great food, fun, family and friends.” In order to abide by this we strive to be as philanthropic as possible and because we are a company that brings families together, we want to show these families we “pay it forward” and others can too!
We want to start 2016 off right. Each week, in the month of January, we will highlight a different non-profit organization we support. We will discuss what we’ve done and what these non-profits are all about.
Stay tuned on our website and Facebook pages for more information and ways that you can get involved!
