Ah-Beetz is going to be in for a wonderful surprise in Abbotsford!
I wanted to comment on my visit to their new Pizza restaurant Friday evening. Was made aware of this new venture by the article in the local newspaper (which by the way failed to include the local phone number) and wanted to give it a try. Terry and his lovely wife were looking forward to this new venture and it showed by how they greeted the customers,,,the simplicity and cleanliness of the small establishment.
After trying a slice at lunch I returned later that night to try out their pizza. What a surprise on their face when they again had no pizza's,,,they ran out of dough and the place was full of customers. Everyone was very patient and Terry was working up a sweat and trying to bake up a storm.
Again I had warmed up slices of two of their pizza's and they were great! First time i have every had artichokes on a pizza,,,they were not the least bit greasy and had a full spread out array of ingredients.
They charge $2.25 for a large slice which as Terry mentioned is higher than the norm for the local establishments. The pizza slices you get around town for .99 are terrible and you are soon burping and looking for stomach relief.
Ah Beetz is going to be very successful due to his fresh ingredients and quality meats. Abbotsford will very much enjoy this new pizza establishment.
Since a lot of people in this area are not going to be reading this site the first rush of business is going to come from word of mouth. They are going to find that they will have difficulty keeping up with the demand...I am sure.
Suggestions to get the word out would be to give some type of coupon out,,,send a local one page advertising blurb and perhaps mention in the advertisement this and other forums, as so many people google new places.
I though the photos Terry attached and the sample of his pies was great! You can tell he is very proud of of his pizza's and success will follow!
The people of Abbotsford are always looking to support any new venture that offers quality and reasonable prices.....
Good Luck Ah-Beetz...get ready to hiring staff and setting up some type of delivery set up,,,,you are going to need it!
