thanks!  I see you are in Chicago.  Stop in Paulie Gee's Logan Square and say hi to Derek (owner) for me.  He is a good friend and helped us get out here with a fundraiser and his design team donated our logo.  I hope I can make it out there someday. Walter

It certainly did...I remember reading about the long wait growing short, hard to believe it was that long ago.

Enjoy the next 4   :pizza: :pizza:

Thanks!  I hope we can do this another 10 and find someone who would like to continue our way of operation in pizza and keep our disabled employees on.

Sounds like you are coming to terms with the high turnover rate with your employees..

It goes in waves. Right now I have a staff that could compete with any big name pizzeria.  3 weeks ago we stopped answering the phones on Friday night and barely could handle walk ins.  Gotta enjoy it while it is good :)

No online ordering or delivery by us or any 3rd party.  We still use pen and handwritten order tickets.  No POS system, tv, wifii, here.  We are continually thinking on how to make things simpler :)

The first pizza joint I worked in 1972 had a school room type movie projector.... Before work I'd ride my bicycle down to the public library to pick out free loaner movies to show at the restaurant in the evenings. 3 stooges, Marx brothers, WC fields... Stuff like that.
A simple way of life.... That everyone seemed to enjoy.I know I sure did! 😎

I remember those projectors.  We have no music or visual technology in the shop.  It is working because people come in early all the time for pickups to just relax and talk in the flesh to others in the shop. People still use those smartphones but not near what one would see normally today.
