Tesla Tulsa employees have been offered one free large pizza from Mazzio’s Italian Eatery if the EV automaker chooses Oklahoma for its Cybertruck and Model Y Gigafactory. Mazzio’s offer reflects the ongoing narrative that Tulsa has little to no reservations about welcoming Tesla into the community.
According to OKC Fox, Mazzio’s offered all of Tesla Tulsa’s potential 7,000 employees one free large pizza. The CEO and president of Mazzio’s LLC, Lori Carver, talked about the Italian eatery’s history in Tulsa and Tesla’s choice to build its Cybertruck and Model Y Gigafactory in Oklahoma.
“Mazzio’s has called Tulsa home for nearly 60 years, and we want to extend a warm Tulsa welcome to the Tesla employees if we are chosen. Tulsa would be a great choice for Tesla because we know first-hand how well the people in this area support our businesses, and that’s part of what makes this area so attractive,” she said.
Tulsa has brazenly campaigned to be Tesla’s next Gigafactory location. The entire local community at Tulsa seems adamant about being the home of Tesla’s Cybertruck and Model Y factory. Over 10,000 people from Tulsa and all over Oklahoma—including some from Austin, Texas—signed an online petition for Elon Musk to bring Tesla to the Tulsa.
Earlier this month, Elon Musk visited Tulsa and the location it was pitching for Tesla’s Cybertruck and Model Y Gigafactory. Musk was also given 2,700 resumes of engineers willing to move to Tulsa for Tesla’s Gigafactory. A leaked render of the potential Cybertruck and Model Y factory in Tulsa was authenticated by local media in Oklahoma.
Tesla might announce the location of its next Gigafactory at the Q2 2020 Earnings Call. Travis County, Texas, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, appear to be the last two contenders vying for Tesla’s Cybertruck and Model Y factory.Follow @PurplePanda88
