After 7 long, grueling weeks of competition, one pizzeria has emerged as NEPA Nation Champion! Congratulations to Maroni's Pizza of Scranton who called upon their strong following and broad customer base to take down the "little pizza shop that could" Joe's Pizza of Nanticoke. Maroni's narrowly escaped a few difficult early round matchups to advance and later found their groove by effectively using social media to generate excitement. However, if there were style points for how to run a fun and creative campaign, Joe's Pizza could write a book on the topic! We will never forget Joe's creative photo posts, the innovative Pizza Crush game, and motivational videos that called upon customers to churn out the vote. These fun antics united a town and really captured the essence of what this contest was all about. Both of these pizzerias are rich in history and were very deserving of the title, but there can only be one NEPA Nation Champion and Maroni's nearly 4,850 facebook followers were just too much for Joe's 1,750.
