Garlic Jim’s and Bothell families give local school teachers a taste of their appreciation

Garlic Jim’s in Bothell is honoring school teachers during the month of May with a pizza party giveaway for a deserving teacher and his or her classroom. The winning teacher will be awarded the prize on National Pizza Party Day on May 18.

“We can’t think of a better way to say thank you to our local school teachers and families,” said Dwayne Northrop, president and CEO of Garlic Jim’s. “Garlic Jim’s sponsors National Pizza Party Day every year and we are always blown away by how passionate our customers are about their schoolteachers. We’re proud to honor teachers for their accomplishments and hard work.”

Through May 3, Garlic Jim’s customers can nominate their favorite teachers online at or by mailing the entry. The form includes a 25- to 250-word short essay in which those who are nominating teachers can describe why their chosen teacher deserves to win the Pizza Party. Representatives from Garlic Jim’s corporate marketing department will select the top three essays in the Bothell area and the nominees from each will be named finalists on May 4.

From May 4-16, customers can vote at the Garlic Jim’s location in Bothell (18404 120th Ave. N.E.) for the finalist they want to win the National Pizza Party Day Contest. The winning teachers do not need to have their parties on National Pizza Party Day; rather they can host their parties at times most convenient to the schedules of their classrooms. Garlic Jim’s is also rewarding the nominator of the winning entry with a Medium Specialty Pizza Gift Certificate.
