Xihongmen Store Now Open!

IKEA - Launch - Website - Pic 04

As with every new Gung Ho! Pizza store it’s both a celebration of all the things that brought us to this far as well as a celebration of the new!

Once again we’ve used reclaimed wood as a feature material, and we’ve added even more plants to the space. We’ve added a pizza box art gallery with 20 different designs.

We’ve got a brand new sauce bar with fresh herbs and all of our signature sauces and dips, plus a whole new range of merchandise – including a selection of New Zealand produce featuring Anchor products, lamb chops, fresh kiwi fruit and… Whittaker’s Chocolate!

The one thing we’re perhaps most proud of is a return to our roots. More than any other store, this new branch is a celebration of our inspiration from the Land of the Long White Cloud. You’ll be hearing a lot more about this soon, but for now, here are some pics.

See you soon!

BUY ONE GET ONE FREE PIZZA

To celebrate we’re offering buy one get one free pizzas until the end of July 3. This is only available in the Xihongmen Store so come out and make a day of it – LIVAT store is probably the most complete shopping center in Beijing with plenty of clothing stores, a Decathlon and an IKEA!

The IKEA Livat Shopping Center is located in Daxing District in the south of Beijing, directly connected to the Xihongmen Subway station.

2016 Student Design Competition Winners

GHP - SDC 2016 - Website - Header 01

The Gung Ho Student Pizza Box Design Competition was once again a massive success! This year we had entires from most of the international schools in Beijing, including the British School of Beijing, Beijing City International School, Beijing World Youth Academy, Dulwich and Harrow.

This year we had a total of 157 submissions, slightly less than last year, but of an even higher standard.

So much so that once again we had to enlist the aid of professional artists: Kang Hao Xian, Zhang Mo Liu, Tian Qi and Yan Shuo to judge. They definitely had their work cut out for them, taking nearly 4 hours to choose our finalists and winners!

Before we get to the winners we’d like to give a final thank you to all the supporters of this project, to all the teachers and parents, and of course to all the incredibly talented Beijing students that showed such amazing creative talent and artistic ability.

Beijing Hikers: Great Wall Clean Up

Jiankou has superb views of the Great Wall. Unfortunately, both hikers and casual visitors are not always conscientious about cleaning up after themselves. In the spirit of Earth Day we’re going to head out and clean up as much as we can, followed by a pizza lunch at the Gung Ho Bros Jiankou traditional Chinese courtyard residence!

The event will be 150-200rmb depending on attendance, but the pizza & beer will be free! To book head over to the Beijing Hiker’s website!
