Big Cheese Awards


Dear Educators of Our Community:

Maria’s Italian Kitchen salutes you and we thank you for your dedication to education.  As a former school secretary, I appreciate the importance of positive rewards for students and limited funding to provide them. 

As your neighborhood restaurant, it gives us great pleasure to offer you our “Big Cheese” Awards.  These awards are free of charge and act as an applause to the efforts of your students.  (I have attached a sample award for your perusal.)   You may give this award as a way of acknowledging your students for their outstanding achievements, their exceptional accomplishments in the community, their classroom participation, or for any ‘good deeds’ performed.

This certificate entitles the recipient to one free “kids meal” when dining at any Maria’s Italian Kitchen.  When redeemed, the certificate will be signed and dated by our manager and returned to the student.  Because we care, we put forth the effort to design the award suitable for framing.


Please contact us ( to let me know how many certificates you would like for your school and I will send them out ASAP.  You’ll receive an email or phone call upon confirmation, then you can pick them up from your local Maria’s between the hours of 9:00am – 11:00am or 2:00pm – 4:00pm.
