Pizza in Phayao

08/17/2011

I have been intending to write a new post for a while now, but these past few weeks have been crazy busy. Our team opened the pizza restaurant on July 23rd, and it has been a wild ride since. Thus, blogging has taken a back seat, but I hope to write more in the coming days. For now, I wanted you to get a look at the first pizza restaurant in Phayao.

We first rented our building back in February. We have spent the past few months renovating and decorating, and it feels good to have it operational. Here are some before-and-after pictures.

And now…

เตาอิฐ พิซซ่า (The Brick Oven)

Before we officially opened we hosted a soft opening for our close friends and neighbors. This allowed our employees to get some practice before we opened to the public. We began the day with an opening ceremony out front. We were especially blessed to have Robert Reagan and Kelly Davidson come and read Scripture, say prayers, and speak blessings over us, our employees, the restaurant, and Phayao. It was such a fun and exciting day for all of us.

We had one day to make adjustments after the soft opening in order to get ready for the grand opening on July 23rd. We had no idea how the first day would go or if we would have many customers. However, at an hour and a half before closing, we had already completely sold out of pizzas. It was an amazing and exhausting day. Our employees did a great job, and I think our customers were pleased. It was a great beginning to this new endeavor.

Here’s a picture from opening day.
