What’s new or exciting at your place? Everything at this location is brand new. We are excited to start offering gluten-free crust as well.
What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? Faster and friendlier service without compromising the products we offer. Our pizza dough and pizza sauce are homemade and all the veggies we use are freshly cut and never frozen. Our wings are baked, not deep-fried.

What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? Santa Claus came to take out a pizza and really liked it.
