Little Caesars loses bet, owes everyone free lunch after UMBC’s ‘crazy’ upset
Little Caesars lost a March Madness bet, so now a free lunch is in order.
The pizza chain said it would give out free lunch boxes “if crazy happens” and a number 16 seed beat a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. Then on Friday it actually happened for the first time ever when the University of Maryland- Baltimore County defeated the University of Virginia 74 to 54.
Now Little Caesars has pledged to keep its side of the bet, and will give out $5 pizza combos at no cost on Monday, April 2 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Customers will be limited to one per family, while supplies last, which may not take too long. Because as much as people love it when an underdog wins, the may love a free lunch even more.
