Aussie pizzeria Barro’s, whose motto is “Make it as good as you like, anywhere”, has found itself in hot water with a recent blog post about its food.
The post was published by the restaurant chain’s CEO, Brian Barro, on the Australian website Barros Pizzeria.
In the post, Barro wrote: “I can’t stress how important it is to have pizza in your home, and that’s why I’m making Barrozas pizzas, and Barroys pizza as good, and as affordable as we can possibly make them.”
“We want to make sure you can get your money’s worth.
That’s why we are putting Barrozos best pies in your hand-helds, at your fingertips.”
The post included Barrozo’s signature pizza, which is made with a special blend of tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil and served with garlic sauce and onions.
Barro told the ABC the restaurant had received a barrage of negative comments about the post.
“People have been saying, ‘Are you sure you’re making Barros pizza?’
And I’m like, ‘Oh no, no I’m not, I’m trying to give Barroza pizza as a reward,'” Barro said.”
The whole idea is to give it to your kids as a gift, to give them a bit of a pizza experience.”
Barrozos pizzas are made with fresh tomato sauce and mozzas garlic sauce, along with onion and basil, along the lines of the restaurant’s signature pies.
“Our pizzas have a real bite to them, and if you’re not a fan of that, you should probably just go somewhere else,” Barro added.
Barro’s has faced criticism from the restaurant industry in recent years, with complaints about the quality of its pizzas.
In 2014, the company was fined $2.4 million for not providing proper training for its franchisees, with the franchisee blamed for misleading customers about the health benefits of their favourite restaurant’s pizza.
Barros Pizza is not the first restaurant chain to face criticism over its pizza.
In 2012, McDonald’s Australia was fined by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) for failing to ensure that customers could easily tell the difference between its chicken nuggets and burgers.
The ACCC later ruled that McDonald’s was in breach of consumer laws by failing to disclose the health risks of its chicken and burgers to consumers.
