Educational Tours

Dion’s offers an educational and fun opportunity for children Pre-K through 5th grade to apply what they are learning in the classroom to real-life experiences. The tour is composed of two facilitator-taught lessons along with a behind-the-scenes look at our restaurants. In addition, each child receives a workbook containing a number of activities designed with Common Core in mind. The tour is conducted by a dedicated tour guide and occur prior to store openings at 9:30am. During the tour, students learn about food groups, safety and teamwork. The children even get to help make some pizza. After the tour is complete, the students eat pizza in our dining room.

Children must be three years of age to participate in tour.
