RENO, NV - Nu Yalk Pizza opened its doors exactly one week ago Thursday at its new location on South Virginia Street in the Winco Shopping Center.
The building is two times larger than the former pizzeria
There’s new outdoor seating.
The owner says he hired 11 more people the handle the new business.
So why did he have a “soft” opening?
“Because as I was doing construction on this place I realized it was a much better location than I thought and I was afraid,” says Rick Crocitto, owner of Nu Yalk Pizza.
Rick says it appears his fears were unfounded.
His business has been a mix of old, and new customers as well as old converts coming back for his pie.
He says his first customer figured out he was open last week and ordered a 15 inch pizza to go right on the spot.
“We covered the open signs so nobody would tell we were open. And it worked out really good. The minute I threw a pizza in the window a guy came in and said are you open? I said yes. He said I need a 15 inch pepperoni pizza to go,” says RIck.
