Corporate social responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

Being open for business means more than a hot oven and fresh ingredients. It’s about being a part of the community, giving something back – and caring for the world around us.

Our food

We’re all about great-quality, delicious food and plenty of choice.

 So everyone, including those on special diets and kids, can dine with us. Food is at the very heart of PizzaExpress – from the triple-certified coffee we serve in our restaurants, to our free School Visits where kids roll up their sleeves and get cooking. Whether you’re dining with friends in our restaurants or relaxing on the sofa with PizzaExpress At Home, great-tasting food matters. Just as much as making sure everyone can enjoy it. 


Supporting Macmillan Cancer Support

PizzaExpress is proud to be in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, which has one simple goal: to bring people together so that no-one faces cancer alone.

Over the term of the partnership we aim to hold a series of events in PizzaExpress restaurants, helping to provide a comfortable and familiar place for people affected by cancer to share their experiences. Staff members of all levels will be taking on their own personal challenge, ranging from a 10 km run or a five peaks trail. In addition, a discretionary 25p donation from every Padana pizza sold will help Macmillan to provide essential financial, emotional, medical and practical support for people affected by cancer.

Your community

From humble beginnings in Wardour Street to over 500 restaurants worldwide –things didn’t happen overnight.

We grew slowly, one restaurant at a time, with local people joining our team and making each restaurant part of their community. We know we have a role to play in each community and – through corporate social responsibility – we’re privileged to be able to make a difference. Whether we’re raising money and giving time to worthy causes, or throwing open our kitchen doors to get primary school kids cooking.


Our people

10,000 people work at PizzaExpress and we want every single one of them to be happy, challenged and fulfilled in their role. That’s why we offer ongoing training, incentive schemes and plentiful opportunities for development.

It’s how we attract – and keep – the brightest minds.


Our environment

We’ve got the soil, sun and elements to thank for all the tasty ingredients we use on our pizzas. So we want to take good care of our planet.
We’re always striving to do the right thing for the environment.

It starts with our Lean & Green programme, which encourages everyone at PizzaExpress to do their bit.
