Forestville LEDO Pizza grand reopening celebration

Forestville, MD – LEDO Pizza, a regional pizza franchise, held its grand reopening of their Forestville location at 3020 Donnell Drive on October 9, 2010.

Tragedy stuck the Penn Marr Shopping Center in May of 2009, when a gas leak caused 5 stores to explode; LEDO was among them. Fortunately, due to the hard work of the Prince George’s County Fire Department, the area was evacuated prior to the explosion.

Owner Mohammed Siddique wished to express his immense appreciation to all who came to his aid by dedicating a wall in his store to the Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department. This mural is adorned with items commemorating the men and women that responded to the incident.

The unveiling was held from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm. LEDO Pizza Forestville invited special guest Fire Chief Eugene Jones to partake in the festivities, as well as a slew of local firefighters and medics. As a very special thank you, the store awarded a free small cheese pizza to all firefighters and paramedics who attended the event.

Everyone who came the joyous occasion received something special. Patrons received a free small cheese pizza with the purchase of any large pie.

LEDO Pizza turns 55 and thanks its loyal patrons with deals

Annnapolis, MD- Who would have thought 55 years ago, a little pizza shop near the University Maryland would grow 97 locations strong? To celebrate its 55th anniversary, and to show its immense appreciation to its loyal customers, LEDO Pizza is offering deals the week of October 3rd through the 9th at participating locations.

On its actual anniversary, October 5th, LEDO is offering customers a $0.55 small cheese pizza special, available for dine-in or carryout. The rest of the week, stores are discounting all fountain sodas to $0.55. Please note the drink special is not valid on October 5th.

In 1955, the concept was simple: to provide high quality food at a great value in a comfortable, family atmosphere.

The legacy lives on today. The families that created LEDO Pizza now pass the tradition to other families in new areas. These franchises uphold the high standards that made LEDO Pizza famous. Very little has changed since 1955. The pizza is still made the same way.

There are some unique qualities of LEDO Pizza that come from its long history. People often ask why LEDO Pizza is rectangular. The round pizza pans commonly seen today were very new in the fifties. Rectangular baking pans were readily available, hence the square pizza. Since that time, round pans have become the rage as pizza operators are able to cut costs by giving the appearance of more, while actually offering less. Thick pepperoni is also a LEDO trademark.

Its unique size resulted from the cooks cutting the pepperoni by hand. The thicker the slice, the faster the work was finished. While entrees and subs have a somewhat shorter history, they have become famous as well. The subs are made with freshly baked bread and stuffed generously. The Italian salad is large enough for a meal and comes with LEDO salad dressing. Other delicious entrees include lasagna, spaghetti, soup, salad and breadsticks.
