New pizza shop will have a familiar sounding name and familiar looking face
With a new name and a new logo, Paul Berardini is just about back in the pizza business.
Berardini unveiled the new look on Facebook last night.
It's been three months since Pauly's Pizza closed, but after lining up his brother as his new business partner, securing the lease for the Ellicott Street restaurant, as well as getting new equipment, Berardini anticipates opening the doors on Big Pauly's May 13.
"I'm happy to get back to making pizza in my hometown," Berardini said. "This is where I'm from and this is where I want to do business."
Pauly's ran into a little trouble with its expansion into Clarence and Berardini's partner needed to pull out.
At the same time, Berardini had some health issues to deal with. He said he's healthy now and ready to start tossing pizza dough again.
The menu will change only slightly, with some items that didn't sell that well getting trimmed, but all of the recipes, the sauce, the dough, the wings and the chicken fingers will all be the same.
And many of Berardini's employees will return, he said.
The new shop's phone number will be (585) 343-BIGP.
There's also a new Facebook page for Big Pauly's. Click Here.
Oh Man! Can't wait! I plan to be there on opening day!
So are our gift certificates from the old Pauly's good for the new Pauly's?
Good luck Pauly. Can't wait for your great pizza.
