Sorry for the delay in posts, but I have been in Las Vegas, a crazy circus of a place. It just so happened that I stayed in the New York, New York Casino. So I thought I'd explore the N.Y. pizza options. I am sure there are hundreds of places serving pizza on the strip, and probably another hundred off the strip and I'm sure, similar to L.A., they are mostly bad. Of course I don't know this for sure, I only ate at 2 places. So I can barely speak for New York New York casino, let alone all of Las Vegas.
I'd like to welcome my new, I guess you could say sponsor, The Pizza Butler. An interesting alternative to the way you serve pizza. Below you can read about the pizza butler, not in my words since have not yet used this. So check it out.
Six years ago my family and I moved to Tampa, Florida where for the first time in my
life, I got involved in the restaurant business. As the owner of an extremely well
known and popular 80‐seat restaurant called Formaggios Pizzeria Restaurant, I
quickly realized that owning a restaurant was a 24‐hour, 7‐day‐a‐week business that
demanded tremendous attention.
One Sunday evening at Formaggios I saw one of my waiters struggling to balance an
18” pie with one hand while trying to reposition items on the dinner table with his
other so that the additional pie would fit. I have 42” square tables yet my wait staff
still had difficulty finding room for two pies on the table. This was a regular
That particular day while watching my waiters jockey for table space, I was struck
with an idea for a space‐saving tray. It was a vision I knew I could produce back in
New York at my business, Hi‐Tech Metals, which manufactures high‐end metals. So I
flew back first thing Monday morning, quickly designed and fabricated a prototype,
and shipped it back to Florida the next day. As soon as we tried it in our restaurant,
we all knew the headaches of our space issues were over. I immediately pulled it
from use and went to a patent attorney.
This little “Z” pan was perfection. I decided to call it “THE PIZZA BUTLER.”
I have already changed the tables in my restaurant. I switched all my two top, six top
and four top tables, which were 42” in depth to 30” which has allowed me to
successfully add 5 more tables to my restaurant. I am now turning over 22 tables
instead of 17.
We have been using The Pizza Butler for over four months now and the pan never
ceases to evoke endless comments. There has yet to be a single customer who has
not remarked on this unique and innovative pan. Some of the comments are:
• I was trying to figure out where you were going to put the
pizza…that’s awesome, what an idea!
• I can’t believe this doesn’t already exist!
• I’d like to meet the person that invented this.
• Great idea ‐‐ stupidly simple.
• Very creative.
• I hope this is patented.
• What a look it gives your tables!
• Wow! Look at that tray.
