Homeless customers are welcome at Rosa’s Fresh Pizza

Mason Wartman did well on Wall Street. By the time he stopped doing equity research to start a pizza joint, he had saved a quarter of a million dollars. He used that money to launch Rosa’s Fresh Pizza, in honour of his mother, Rose.

One day a customer asked to buy a slice of the restaurant’s $1-a-slice pizza for a homeless person. Wartman got some Post-It Notes to keep track of the kind gesture. Now Rosa’s walls are covered with notes from all the customers wanting to do the same.

Over 14,000 free pizza slices have brightened lives since 2013. One small request has sent ripples of kindness around Philadelphia. People receive more than pizza. They are given the loving letters and notes written by people happy to have a chance to share.
