Savouring one's dinner while enjoying company seems of utmost importance to the owners at the Curry Pizza Company in Fresno, California.
This pizza eatery is currently offering a free large pizza for their next visit, or to take home to a group of atleast four people if they promise to lock up their phones in the restaurants' lockers, according to a US news agency.
The scheme dubbed the 'Talk to Each Other Discount' was the brain-child of one of the co-owners Varinder Malhi, who thought of this after unplugging from his phone at home.
Speaking to US reporters, Malhi shared his phone mantra saying, "Unless it rings, or it's important for work -- I'm just not on my phone. Going through Instagram, Facebook, none of that. Just trying to avoid it."
The eatery which is famous for sharing their pizza with customers has few rules for earning the free pizza.
"You have to eat at the restaurant, everyone in the group has to have a smartphone, and you can't check your phone as long as you're eating," shared Malhi.
Curry Pizza Company which already donates dozens of pizzas to the homeless in Downtown Fresno through the organization Khalsa Aid, also offers to give away the free pizza to this noble cause.
"We make 40-to-50 pizzas every other week from each of our locations," Malhi said. "Khalsa Aid volunteers to serve it, we volunteer to make it."
