Move over President of the United States, Chip Randa wants voters to crown his eatery, Tonelli's Pizza Pub, finest in the universe.
In a youtube video posted a few weeks ago, Randa, clad in a suit with Tonelli's offerings situated in front of his podium, shares why Horsham-area customers have stopped patronizing his Easton Road business - and offers reasons why they should give him another chance.
Randa posted a link to the video on his business' Facebook page, which he told Patch generally reaches "800 people tops."
"That post reached almost 16,000 people," Randa said, adding that the viral video has translated to tons of sales. "Tonelli's is on fire right now."
Along with his "grassroots campaign" promises, Randa, in the video offers specials through Nov. 15, including large plain pizzas for $7.99; $5.99 cheeesesteaks and hoagies; and discounted jumbo wings. The deals, Randa said, are the "craziest thing we have ever done."
As of last week, Randa said the total customer savings amounted to $6,200.
"We almost can't keep up," Randa said. "Only about three weeks left."
