In light of recent developments, Mario’s Pizza has been forced to increase the prices of our menu items. Below, we have attempted to answer any questions you may have about this price increase. If your question or concern is not reflected in our FAQ section, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and our customer response team will reply shortly.
Why are you increasing prices?
Mario’s is committed to producing nutritious, high-quality meals, and to maintaining our high level of standards. To ensure that we continue to provide you with the most delicious menu items we can, we import most of our raw material. The majority of our ingredients are from the United States. Our cheese, which gives Mario’s Pizza that signature taste, is imported from New Zealand. While we partner with local suppliers to provide us with various items such as soft drinks, salami, beef, pepperoni, packaging, wrappers and boxes, these items are similarly imported on their end.
With that said, food prices are rising internationally, and the rising price of oil has affected the cost of shipping and transportation. Due to these factors, Mario’s is forced to increase the prices of our offerings to offset these rising costs. However, despite this, we remain the most competitively priced in the market, and offer lower prices than many of our competitors.

When will it go into effect?
1st April, 2011
Do you plan to raise prices again in the future?
This is not a decision that we take lightly, nor is it something that we hope to do again. However, our costs must reflect changes in the market, and we will continue to base our pricing strategy on the way the markets fluctuate.
