Gung Ho! Pizza turns 4!

Gung Ho! Sanlitun Ribbon Cutting

Gung Ho Shengri Kuaile!

It seems like only yesterday that we opened our very first store in Sanlitun. Wait, no it doesn’t! It’s been a very busy 4 years indeed, full of everything from pizza, salads, thick crust, thin crust, wholewheat, white, box cover art, pizza points, recycled paper, Gung Ho! Bingo, new stores, GRI Sustainability Reports, international trade delegations, cleaning up the Great Wall, awards, charity and more!

But in true Gung Ho fashion, we don’t look to the past too long before getting started on the next big thing. And boy is it big!

We’re not going to talk too much about it right now but what we can tell you is that it’s probably Gung Ho’s biggest project to date. So keep your eyes peeled and your ear to ground! We’ll be showing you soon and we can’t wait to see what you think.

Happy birthday Gung Ho!

It’s Gung Ho! Pizza’s 4th birthday this Monday and we’re going through the vault to check out all the random things we’ve done in the past. It’s taking a while.


GHP IV Retrospective: Early Designs

Old School Gung Ho Logo

We’ve been around since 2010, but we didn’t just start then. It took us a year of planning and design before we even opened.

Without further ado, here’s a little collection of rarely – or never before – seen Gung Ho! design work, including early branding and pizza box designs, and well as some cheeky marketing.

GHP IV Retrospective: The Launch Party

Next Monday is Gung Ho’s 4th birthday! What can we say? It’s been one crazy ride.

Over the next few days we’re going to look back at some of those crazy we did in the past four years, starting with our launch party!

At Gung Ho! we like to keep things under wraps until the big reveal, so even up to the night of the event most people had no idea what Gung Ho! Pizza was going to be. We thought we’d take advantage of this and set up a little fake-out surprise for the launch.

We sent out invites in a completely different set of branding – “Gung Ho Pizzeria” in classic Italian red, white and green – and decked out the venue in a similar fashion. We threw on a playlist heavy on the Dean Martin and opened the doors.

We had everyone believing that we’d just announced the launch of a traditional Italian bistro. And then, at the end of John and Jade’s speech, we flipped the switch.

Check the video to see how it went!

Jade Gray and the meaning of life on

This video’s all in Chinese unfortunately but it’s still definitely worth a looksee for the Chinese/English fake out at the start! is a Chinese video forum for learning. It’s quite similar to the TED Talks. In this presentation, Jade talks about the nature of business and the meaning of life to a packed crowd.

Gung Ho! Sustainability Report Launch

Gung Ho! Sustainability Report Launch

The World Environment Day, we officially launched our 2013 Sustainability Report – a full green audit of Gung Ho! Pizza and a fitting capstone to a year of sustainable action and cooperation with green consultants We Impact.

Lots of people came out to the beautiful SURGE Art space for the event, (itself fittingly located in the Leeds Certifed Modern MOMA building), including representatives of Beijing’s fast-growing Green community, as well as many of our green partners. The Yealands wine and Jing A beer was flowing and everyone had a fantastic time – possibly not mutual exclusive factors.

Our Environment Manager Laura Xiao and We Impact CEO Joe Oliver introduced the New Zealand Embassy’s Deputy Head of Mission David Evans who shared a few kind words, followed by the Gung Ho! Bro’s themselves, who kicked off the party soon after.

Thank you to everyone for being a part of such a fantastic night, and an integral part of our Green Story.
