Fresh, local Italian food restaurants
Zizzi opened its first restaurant in 1999 in Chiswick, London and currently has over 140 restaurants throughout the UK, simply putting together well-chosen ingredients to make exceptional italian food. As the first restaurant to go live with Pennies, Zizzi launched the digital charity box in November 2010, originally supporting The Prince’s Trust as an extension of its Fresh Young Talent initiative. Not only was Zizzi helping to raise money for The Prince’s Trust, it also offered disadvantaged young people opportunities for work placements in its restaurants.
Since May 2014 Zizzi has supported Cancer Research UK and the charity’s ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ campaign, raising funds to help beat cancer sooner. By simply offering customers the opportunity to donate 25p through Pennies at the end of a meal, Zizzi has raised over £500,000 in five years, proof that a few pennies really does add up, making a huge contribution to Cancer Research UK’s life-changing work.
