The Lackawanna County Pizza Trail serves up help for locally owned pizzerias during pandemic

160 plus mom and pop pizzerias in Lackawanna County could get a much needed boost down the road thanks to a new, tasty campaign.

When the going got tough during the pandemic, a lot of us turned to, well, pizza to get through quarantine.

And to continue to help local mom and pop pizzerias thrive during and after COVID-19, the Lackawanna County Visitors Bureau has launched a new campaign.

It's called the "Lackawanna County Pizza Trail."

The visitors bureau broke down the county into 13 regions. See more below.

Locals get to pick their favorite pizza joints to be featured on the trail. 

The top choices will be listed on the pizza trail map when voting is finished. 

HOW TO VOTE

You can nominate/vote for your favorite pizza place in Lackawanna County,  based on the region that is featured every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 

Voting happens here on the visitors bureau's Facebook page.

Voting/nominations end August 14 & 15. 

The Lackawanna County Pizza Trail is expected to launch this fall.

Unlike wine trails and ice cream trails, there won't be a punch card. The locations will be listed on the Lackawanna County Visitors Bureau's website as a way to encourage people to try more restaurants.
