Pepperoni’s wins Menulog Restaurant Awards 2016 VIC prize
4th January 2017

Pepperoni’s has been revealed as the Best Restaurant in VIC, after winning the state trophy in the Menulog Restaurant Awards 2016. The pizza restaurant, located in the heart of Melbourne opposite Flinders Street Station, was voted the top restaurant in Victoria (VIC) in the people’s choice awards.

Open since 2002, Pepperoni’s has been serving up delicious pizzas 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, and now has the state trophy to prove its Victoria’s most popular Menulog restaurant.

Menulog spokesperson Alistair Venn says, “We’re always looking for ways we can support and recognise the work of our local restaurant partners. The Menulog Restaurant Awards are a new iteration of our ‘Tasty Takeaway’ Awards, designed to better recognise the broader and more diverse selection of restaurants we now have on the platform.

“The Menulog Restaurant Awards are selected based on a restaurant's popularity, rating and customer satisfaction - and this year, VIC told us their favourite was Pepperoni’s,” added Mr Venn.

The new awards process meant every restaurant on Menulog had the opportunity to take home a prize, with 250 local restaurants scooping accolades for their specific cuisine type, along with six overall regional winners.

Restaurant Owners Matthew Seoud and Norm Ellis from Pepperoni’s Melbourne Store says, “We’re over the moon with the accolade. We never shut our doors, so that our customers can have the best pizzas whenever they want to, we would like to say thankyou to all our customers and to Menulog that our dedication has been recognised with this award.”

Menulog Restaurant Awards are going to be held bi-annually starting from 2017, with both one in the Summer and in Winter. The Winter awards will also include a popular vote winner/s.

The Menulog Restaurant Awards will be a bi-annual awards program, with the summer awards announced each December and the winter awards announced each July.
