Toppings Pizza Co – WWYD?

Last updated on October 12, 2010 by Liza Hawkins

On Twitter last night I stumbled upon a tweet by Beth Schillaci that talked about a local, family owned pizza place in Frederick struggling with a lawsuit regarding faxes they’ve sent to other local business to market their pizza. Two hundred thousand dollars – that’s right $200K – is on the line, as well as this well-being of this proud family of six, who’s livelihood is being threatened.

I get it – you’re not supposed to send unsolicited advertising faxes per the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991. But this seems different than those scammer-esque faxes we receive at MY office every other day, boasting of eight day cruises for only $50 a person. This is a family – a local business man with four kids (including a set of triplets) and his wife – trying to maintain a successful small business, in a town that loves their pizza!
Me? I’d love to see Toppings’ faxed price list at my office everyday. But if I didn’t, then you know what I’d do? I’d call them, and say, “Would you please remove my fax number from your list?” And you know what? I bet they would, without hesitation. 

What would you do?

Toppings Pizza Company is located at 5330 New Design Road in Frederick, Maryland.

  1. This is absolutely ridiculous and just plain sad. I have a fax # and get junk faxes all the time. If I got one from a local place with a real offer I would probably be happy. Either way, a spam fax is certainly not worth $200k
