Student Pizza Box Design Competition

Students Pizza Box Design Comp

In celebration of Children’s Day, anticipation of our new Kids Menu, and most importantly, a rapidly diminishing stack of pizza boxes, Gung Ho! Pizza is throwing a STUDENTS PIZZA BOX DESIGN COMPETITION! If you’re a student and love to draw, enter our competition for the chance to get your design on the cover of our pizza boxes, a shout out for your school, and a pizza party for all of your friends!

The competition is broken up into elementary and high school brackets and will feature a winner from each. The deadline is June 14, 2015 so get moving!

School’s In!

Of course we’d love to have the support of the fantastic international education network in Beijing. If a talented student from your institution wins, we’d be happy to feature your logo on our box next to the winning design. Also, we can provide a design brief for the project that would make a great lesson plan for art/design classes – and our Marketing/Design guy Rich Akers would be happy to come to your school and give a brief presentation on what it’s like to be a Professional Pencil Jockey! If you’re interested, please drop him a line at

The Deets

THEME: Summer in Beijing
AGE GROUP 1: 12 & Under (Elementary)
AGE GROUP 2: 18 & Under (High School)
COLORS: Black & Pink (On White Background)
MINIMUM SIZE: 20cm X 20cm

The theme is “Summer in Beijing”. Our boxes go everywhere so keep it family friendly, but don’t be afraid to be a little different :)

The design needs to fit in a square space. The small box dimension is 28.5cm. We will resize the design for the large box. We need a 300dpi scan, at least 20cm x 20cm but ideally 30cm x 30cm.

The design needs to able to be printed in flat colors, so no gradients (though half-tone is okay). The colors are pink (90% Magenta) and black (100%) on a white background. NOTE: The design will eventually be printed on brown cardboard, so be aware of that.

In the event that you win (good luck!) we’ll also need a hand-drawn or designed self-portrait.
Deadline is June 24, 2015. Send submissions to

TBJ Award Haul!

TBJ Awards 2015

Fantastic Four (Awards)

This year we were stoked to receive not 1 but 4 nominations in The Beijinger’s annual Reader Restaurant Awards – our most nominations ever! And if we were stoked at the nominations, words simply cannot express how happy we are to have taken home four of them! It was an incredible haul across the board – especially in addition to the Pizza Cup trophy we managed to pick up last year.

It was especially gratifying to receive these awards in the areas we’ve been particularly focused on: delivery operations, food hygiene and safety, customer service and sustainability. It’s a great recognition of these efforts, and an amazing sign that we’re moving in the right direction. The team at Gung Ho! would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote in TBJ’s extremely comprehensive restaurant awards.

In the photo above we have from left to right: Lido Assistant Store Manager & Interim Green team Leader Lena (Outstanding Green Store), Training Supervisor and Restaurant Service Manager Clara (Outstanding Service), Finance and Ops Director Lucy (Outstanding Delivery) and Marketing Manager Rich (Outstanding Salads). What a good lookin’ bunch!


Lido Renovations

Lido Renovation

We launched our Lido store and Company HQ in 2011 – that’s nearly 4 years ago! And after the massive success of our new Sanlitun restaurant, we thought it was time to do a little work on Lido too. We’ve got big plans, we can’t wait to show you! But if you’ve been to our new Sanlitun dine-in restaurant, you’ll have a pretty good idea what we’re talking about, gourmet shares, piping hot pizza and ice-cold craft beer. Just in time for Beijing Summer.


We’re still open for delivery though, so if you feel hungry just give us a call at 5135 8557 or online at
