Jon & Vinny strike back
The Jon & Vinny’s catering team truck fleet was hit with graffiti over the holiday break, but the duo isn’t taking the insult lying down. Instead they’re reaching out to their vast network of supporters to try and identify those behind the incident, while offering a 100 pizza reward. Sounds enticing.
This isn’t the first time the pair has put up a reward for something gone awry, either. Earlier this summer the team’s Son of a Gun restaurant caught a man on camera stealing a family heirloom toothpick holder, and put out a reward that included lots of fried chicken sandwiches. No word on whether that burglar was ever caught.
