Gung Ho! Pizza and SURGE Art bring you 4 amazing box designs by talent up and coming local artists this Spring
Gung Ho’s original Feeding Starving Artist project started in March 2011 and invites local Beijing artists to create pizza box covers depicting “Seasons in Beijing”. Not only do these pizza boxes provide a platform for burgeoning artists, they’re also beautiful to look at, presenting the viewer with unique local perspectives on Beijing life.
Over the last 2 years we’ve collaborated with premier contemporary art mag LEAP, as well as iconic T-Shirt hawker Plastered 8 T-Shirts, and lucky enough to feature work by creative luminaries such as illustrators Ray Lei and Yan Cong, environmental artist MEMUCO, hot-shot tattooist Wang Ke and pioneering graffiti team ABS Crew [not pictured].
Under the mandate of supporting young artists in Beijing, we’re stoked to announce our upcoming collaboration with SURGE Art, who have been dedicated to supporting China’s most promising up and coming artists since 2006. SURGE Art not only by raises awareness here and abroad but also helps promote and facilitate the sale of their artwork both online as well as at regular Art Fairs held annually in major cities all over China, the next of which will be held in Beijing’s Sanlitun Village at the end of April.
This Spring Gung Ho! Pizza & SURGE Art are releasing not one but FOUR different amazing impressions of Spring in Beijing by young talents Kang Haoxian, Zhang Zhanzhan, Wu Lidan and Meng Jin & Fang Er. The boxes will be released simultaneously along with an online event giving away original work by the artists created onsite at Gung Ho! Pizza.
The new Gung Ho! +SURGE Art pizza box covers will officially launch on April 3, 2014. Stay tuned for more info, artists’ interviews and more!

Gung Ho! Girls
We don’t think we can say we’re proud that Gung Ho! Pizza is an equal opportunity employer. We just can’t see ourselves doing it any other way. Of our local team, 40% are women. In addition, a third of our management team is female, and women make up half of our department managers. We can’t say we’re especially proud of these numbers, but we can say – absolutely – that in every position, we’ve hired the best person for the job.
GO! GO! GO!
…and Bingo wasn’t his name, oh!
Gung Ho! Bingo is now over! Thanks to everyone who played. It was a project a long time in the making, but we’re ecstatic at the result and love to do it again soon.
What did you think? Did you play? Did you come close? We’d love to hear your thoughts on how to make Gung Ho! Bingo even better the next time. Hit us with your Bingo Stick here at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bin… GO! GO! GO!
Hard at work in the Gung Ho! Laboratory
After an intense 6 months in the pipeline, we’re proud to finally unveil our new and improved Gung Ho Pizza Crust!
As you know, we’re always looking for ways to improve our products – especially our pizza. From sourcing better ingredients, to playing with percentages and cooking times, we practically live on the drawing board. Our goal? The perfect pizza of course! Sure it’s a lofty goal, but as we like to say: the journey is the destination.
Enough talking, tell us what you think! Drop us a line anytime at email@example.com and give us the verdict!
It’s the Circle… of Pizza
You saw pics of the gorgeous pink Dancing Lion we sent on deliveries – here’s a little video!
Lion Dancing is a traditional form of Chinese dancing that is usually performed during Chinese New Year and other traditional festivals. There are two types of lion dancing (and lions!) the northern style and the southern style.
The lion we chose is a southern style “He Shan” lion, known for it’s richness of expression, magnificent appearance and it’s iconic Chinese drum accompaniment. Also, it’s pink! (Though most He Shan lions are not). It’s also the type of lion most familiar to foreigners, from being used as weapons in kung fu movies, and wandering down your local Chinatown.
Also, the two talented performers we found turned out to be quite famous, and perform live on this year’s ubiquitous CCTV Spring Festival gala!
Happy New Year!
Attention Gung Ho Massive!
Just letting you know we’ll be closing from:
9pm Wednesday night (Jan 29) to 11am Thursday week (Feb 6)

It’s really been an amazing year and we thank you for all of your support. Stay tuned! We’ve got plenty of big things planned for the Year of the Horse.
GO! GO! GO!

Happy Year of the Horse. Yeehaw!
Gung Ho! has been trying to build a successful and sustainable business model from 3 aspects: Profit, People and Planet. So what has been done last quarter to be Green?
Reusable Pizza Box Prototype
Last year we hosting a competition to create a reusable pizza box. We got lots of great ideas! This is our first prototype, made from wood. It’s not perfect, we’re on the way!
Recycled Paper Pizza Box
Our reusable pizza box is a work in progress, but there are still many things we can do. Our pizza boxes are now made from recycled paper, reducing our carbon footprint by 1280g per box!
In January 2013 Gung Ho! started its waste management journey; Runtian farm takes our food waste and uses it as chicken feed, reducing our total waste by more than 50%!
Every month, Gungho members go out to join interesting green activity.
In July 2013, we went to Xiaohongmen wastewater treatment plant and visit Liangshui river with Natural University!
Every quarter, we have environment training for all staff in each store, what did we talk about last quarter? Water! We can’t live without water, so how can we save the limited, precious water?
In September 2013, our first green store opened in Wangjing! So what makes it a Green Store?
- 33% percent of the brick we use is made from rock leftover from coal mining.
- These LED lights use 85% less electricity than a normal light bulb.
- These water-saving taps can save up to 50% water!
- This cabinet is made of particle board made from wheat chaff.
