Does Pink's Pizza insurance cover pizza-nappings?
As the spawn of two lawyers, I've been bred to obsess over written documentation. Contracts, leases, purchasing agreements, etc. all bring out my OCD tendencies like little else.

Case in point: When I discovered Pink's Pizza offered "insurance" on their pizza for 50 cents, I needed to know more specifics (in writing). Did it cover loss and/or theft of my pizza? Death and dismemberment (of myself or the deliveryman)? Cancellation or postponement of the order once placed?

The Web site provided some clarification:

Due to the enormous popularity of Pink's Pizza products, we are now insuring your delivery against robbery, highjacking and/or possible ransom situations. Furthermore, all insurance donations will benefit the Japan Relief Efforts.

But I needed more details, so I called Pink's. I was interested in approximately how many insurance policies they sold per week. More important, I also wondered if the policy covered pizza theft by one's domestic partner.

From manager Matt at the West University location, I learned that Pink's Pizza Insurance is purchased at least a few times a week. Matt considers the policy to be blanket liability insurance against theft INCLUDING BY ONE'S HUSBAND.

Oh boy, that is definitely worth a two-quarter investment. Husband: You've been warned.

Delivery quality from the Heights location is sub-par.  Papa John's gets my pizza to me hotter.  To bad it tastes aweful (my last Papa John's pie tasted of salt, sugar, and burning).  I do pick up from the Heights location, but only because my wife loves Pinks.  I think they make a good "wild topping" pie, but it isn't worth the money in my book.  I'd rather eat at Brothers.

Brothers for life!

I wonder if a place could start offering an option to chip in for healthcare for employees, since many restaurants don't seem to offer any policy for their employees.


Surely the need for Japan Relief Efforts is met by now, no?

Would be nice if it covered getting your pizza after taking 90 minutes and having it delivered ice cold, with a luke warm salad when they're literally 4 blocks away. The West Gray location has gotten steadily worse over the years, and I hear the same of the Heights location too.

@gossamersixteen Can't say for the two you mention, but I've always done pickup at the Bissonnet location and we've been happy.

@erichenao @gossamersixteen Consider yourself lucky, and the manager is a total thug at the West Gray location, won't apologize ever just makes excuses and is downright rude about it too..
