Zizzi launched with Pennies in November 2010, originally supporting The Prince’s Trust as an extension of its Fresh Young Talent initiative. Not only was Zizzi helping to raise money for The Prince’s Trust but it also offers disadvantaged young people the opportunities for work placements in their restaurants.
