Part of this educational experience was to work at the very first Godfathers Pizza and the very first Minsky’s Pizza – kinda cool huh? Throughout this time, Kevin worked his way up. Starting as a pizza maker and continuing through kitchen management, general management and eventually business ownership. He continued to master his craft and study the industry. Searching for the best way to provide the perfect pizza experience.

Kevin wanted a pizza restaurant with a unique ambiance, mouth watering menu and a family friendly experience that keeps guests coming back. A concept built on quality – not price.
