#46 Nationwide

We can't believe it and seeing that Yelp is totally customer rated with owners not being able to alter reviews makes it all the nicer.  Thanks everyone for a wonderful 1st year.  It shows mom/pop operations can still make it in this world of franchises :)   Walter/Judy

Thanks Craig and thanks for your support.  I wonder how many food places there are nationwide?  It kind of is shocking in a good way and tonight as I type we are dead quiet :) Go figure this industry??  Walter

Thanks!   It has sure boosted our out of town, state, country, customers.   Today at lunch a casino called and said they wanted a couple pies for a VIP and his chauffer would pick it up.  He was late getting here and said his boss wanted it fresh out of the oven and had us remake the pies and paid for all 4 and left a big tip.  Stuff like this and foodie/pizza nuts coming in has increased since our yelp ratings get us to show #1 pizza in Reno.  Walter

Thanks :)  We are not of the personality type to open multiple locations.  To make the pies right each time means I make the dough and every pie and Judy, my wife, works the register/greets/does the phone.   Inconsistency is a fact when one opens multiple sites, or extends hours of operation past what one can physically do alone and others have to be hired to make the pies and run the shop.  That was the interesting thing with the Yelp top 100 list.  Many are small mom/pop shops like ours.     We will sell our recipes and train our complete operational ways to anyone interested in making pies like ours.  This way we are not financially connected with any shop but our own. Walter
