Community delivery comes to Lewiston-Auburn

We have officially launched our weekly community delivery program in Lewiston-Auburn! We’re partnered with Side By Each Brewing Co. so you can grab beer and pizza all in one stop.

Each Tuesday, you can order OTTO pizza through the ordering link below for onsite pickup at Side By Each Brewing. Pizza pickup will take place on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Be sure to order your favorite Side By Each beer to pair with the pizza. (NOTE: you need to order pizza and beer separately – beer must be ordered from brewery and pizza must be ordered from OTTO). We’ll be set up in the Side By Each parking lot; just come up to the table, give us your name and your order will be waiting for you!

If you’d like to order your beer ahead of time, click here to place your Side By Each order.

For community deliveries, we par bake the pizzas so you can finish them in your oven at home. This way, you are able to enjoy the pizza fresh out of the oven. It’s easy to cook; pre-heat your oven to 450º F and place the pizza on rack for 5 minutes or until cheese starts to bubble. If you do not have an oven, or prefer that we fully cook your pizza, just add it to the cooking instructions or email benc@ottoportland.com.

This delivery model has worked great in other communities. Due to the limited delivery services currently available, we want to serve as many communities as we are able.

Email erikm@ottoportland.com if you are interested in adding your town to our new community pizza delivery program. We look forward to serving the Brunswick area!

Re-opening: What we are doing to keep our customers & employees safe

The safety of our customers and employees is of the utmost importance to us. As we begin to reopen our shops for dine-in and outdoor patio seating, we’re taking some additional steps to keep everyone safe and healthy. In addition to being in compliance with local and state mandates, we are also taking the following safety measures:

  • All customer touch points [doors, handles, counters, fountain machines, napkin dispensers, condiment holders, etc] are sanitized every 30 minutes.
  • One dedicated employee is in charge of sanitizing tables and chairs after each use.
  • Employees will receive temperature checks at the beginning of each shift.
  • Employees will continue to wear gloves and masks.
  • All tables are spaced 6 feet apart. Where that is not possible, we will stager seating so guests are able to maintain social distancing while dining with us.
  • No customers waiting in the dining room. If the room is at capacity, customers must wait outside.
  • Our mobile pickup and contactless delivery options will continue to be available.
Scan the QR code to view our menu.

Furthermore, we will have a QR code on every table that will direct guests to our menu. Simply scan the QR code with the camera on your phone, and our menu will pop up. We will also offer single use menus for those who prefer physical menus.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please reach out to us at contactus@ottoportland.com.

Update: Feeding the Frontline Workers

We cannot thank our customers, communities and folks who have supported this initiative enough. This campaign has been a great demonstration on how communities hold each other up and work together during uncertain times.

Through the support of our OTTO community, we’ve provided:

  • Meals to 37 frontline facilities
  • Over 500 pizzas delivered
  • Over $12,000 in food and beverages
  • Nourishment for hundreds of frontline workers including hospital employees, community health center employees, first responders, and homeless/teen center staff to name a few

If you’re interested in supporting our Feeding the Frontline campaign, click here to contribute. We’ve also added a contribution option to our online ordering pages. You can now order a meal and contribute to Feed the Frontline in the same transaction!

Weekly Community Delivery

We are now offering weekly community delivery in towns beyond our normal delivery radiuses. Our current schedule includes:

  • Chebeague Island, ME – Wednesday
  • Gorham, ME – Wednesday
  • Windham, ME – Thursday
  • Peaks Island, ME – Friday

If there’s an interest from 10 or more families in your neighborhood, we will coordinate a weekly delivery to bring our pizzas, salads, beer & wine, and more to a designated pick-up location. Our pizzas can be delivered fully cooked or par-baked to be finished in your oven at home. Prepay ahead of time to limit contact upon delivery and enjoy your pizza at home.

Helping OTTO Feed Frontline Workers

When a customer called Penguin Pizza in Boston and ordered pizzas to be delivered to frontline healthcare workers at a nearby hospital, it sparked an idea – we can support local businesses and feed critical frontline workers through one initiative.

Feeding the Frontline is a donation-based framework that supports both restaurants and frontline workers during the COVID-19 crisis. Through purchasing gift cards or meals from participating businesses, those working tirelessly on the frontline are provided with nourishment to help fuel them through their shifts.

On April 4th, we launched a Feeding the Frontline campaign at OTTO. Here’s how it works:

  • Customers can support by contributing at ottoportland.com/shop
  • Our team reaches out to various frontline facilities that are currently accepting donations within our communities
  • Using the contributions from our website, we create orders to fit the specific needs of each facility
  • Deliveries and pickups are coordinated by our team, with the safety of all parties involved as our top priority
  • Contributors receive an email after their donation has been put to work

We’ve had an extremely positive response from our community, and are happy to say we’ve already fulfilled several orders. The healthcare workers and first responders who have received orders could not be more appreciative.

We cannot thank our contributors enough for helping us make this possible, and promise to continue working hard to feed the frontline workers in our communities.

To contribute, please go to our website or feel free to reach out to us at contactus@ottoportland.com.

OTTO Partners with FEED KIDS and Cooking Matters to combat food insecurity

At OTTO, we strongly believe in investing in our communities, and are proud to support a variety of causes and local organizations. Since we opened our doors in 2009, we’ve worked with over 500 organizations – from hosting fundraisers, to sponsoring teams, and handing out pizza to 5k participants – giving back is an important part of what we do.

As OTTO continues to grow and expand into new communities, we are continuously redefining the ways in which we give back. It is important that we are intentional and impactful with our reach, and that we’re able to align our core values with our giving. As a restaurant, one issue that is extremely important to us is food insecurity. We believe that no child should ever go hungry, and that families, schools, and communities should have the tools and resources to combat food insecurity. We’ve recently partnered with organizations in Maine and Massachusetts which aim to do just that – end child hunger in our communities, and provide families with the resources to connect them to healthy and affordable food options. Starting March 1, OTTO will be donating $1 from every monthly special pizza sold to FEED KIDS in Maine, and to Cooking Matters in Massachusetts.

Full Plates, Full Potential – FEED Kids

Full Plates, Full Potential is an organization dedicated to ending child hunger in Maine. “[Their] work focuses on increasing participation in school breakfast, after school meals, and summer meal programs.” We are proud to say that we are now one of their FEED KIDS Partners, and will be donating $1 of every monthly special pizza sold in Maine to Full Plates, Full Potential.

Cooking Matters MA

Cooking Matters is a campaign developed by Share Our Strength; a nonprofit that aims to end poverty and hunger. More specifically, Cooking Matters aims to end childhood hunger by “inspiring families to make healthy, affordable food choices. [Their] programs teach parents and caregivers with limited food budgets to shop for and cook healthy meals.” Cooking Matters helps connect low-income families with the tools and resources to prepare healthy food on a budget. OTTO will donate $1 of every monthly special pizza sold in Massachusetts to Cooking Matters.

Follow us to learn more about how we will be working with these two organizations to help end child hunger in our communities.

OTTO Pizza: At a Brewery Near You

Pizza and beer just go together. It’s a universal truth. At OTTO, we are always looking for ways to work with our local breweries: tap takeovers, limited edition collaborations, even using craft beer as an ingredient. Lately we’ve been working with breweries in a new way.

ML.jpg

We’re excited to announce that we now offer pizza delivery to select breweries in both Maine and Massachusetts!

If you’re a regular on the tasting room circuit, you may have seen one of our ordering tablets already. They’re simple to use and just like ordering online.

Here’s how they work:

  • After approaching the OTTO ordering kiosk, enter the delivery address that’s conveniently listed on the bottom of the tablet. Once the address is entered, click “order” and select “ASAP” to get your order started.
  • Place your order as you normally would by selecting your favorite pizzas, salads and apps. All you’ll need to complete your order is your name, phone number and payment information. You can also enter your OTTO Rewards information to earn points on your delivery.
  • Delivery typically takes 35-45 minutes. This leaves you a little time to enjoy some beverages while you wait for your order.
  • If you have any questions or need to make any changes to your order, simply call the number listed at the bottom of the kiosk to reach the OTTO team handling your order.

We currently have OTTO ordering kiosks at the following locations:

OTTO Pizza is also available at the Rising Tide tasting room in Portland (103 Fox Street, Portland, ME) . They offer slices, as well as small pies, right there at the tasting room.

If you are a brewery or other business interested in offering OTTO pizza at your establishment, please contact us at catering@ottoportland.com for more details.
