Mr. Prashant Gaur, Chief Brand and Customer Officer, Pizza Hut India Subcontinent said,“This Valentine’s Day, we endeavoured to celebrate inclusiveness by getting couples from different walks of life to come together and share their unique love stories while enjoying the tastiest Pan Pizzas in town. It was a heart-warming and delightful experience to host these couples who transcended outmoded societal barriers to spend a day of love and togetherness with us. We look forward to many more such occasions.”The event was appreciated by guests who got a unique opportunity to freely share thoughts and opinions with a diverse gathering.
“I was so pleasantly surprised that a big brand like Pizza Hut invited people across spectrum, irrespective of background or sexual orientation, which is why I chose to come. This was our first dance out in public as a couple and I will never forget this experience.” – Pooja (28) and partner Ayesha (25) (both names changed as per request)
“Our first date was at Pizza Hut and now we are celebrating our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple also with Pizza Hut, so our love story has come a full circle today” –Tanya Kapila (26) and husband Tanmay Mathur (30)
“After 34 years and three kids we are still discovering each other. We did salsa for the first time today which I never thought we will ever do as a couple.” – Nirmal Katyal (55) and husband Vinod Katyal (55)
“Ashish proposed to me at the Pride Parade in front of thousands of people, and that was a huge moment for us. However, acceptance from the society at large still has a long way to go and we need more such events for one to go out as their true self and not be scared of what people might think.” – Vishwas Khare (29) and fiancée Ashish Deb (34)
