Second Quarter Member Success Showcase: Pizza Plant
This month, the Business Resource Council is pleased to announce that the 2nd Quarter Member Success Showcase Award will be presented to Pizza Plant!
The Syracuse family opened the first Pizza Plant location in October of 1980 in a tiny former submarine sandwich shop. A second, larger store opened in August 1982, with the infamous Pod already on its way to achieving cult status. In 1987, the original Pizza Plant moved to a larger, more modern location, which contained outdoor seating on a wonderful awning covered deck.
Yet another location was added in 1994. This Pizza Plant restaurant introduced the Italian Pub concept that remains today. Craft brews and wine were introduced to an eager audience and in 1999 the original store received the same makeover to reflect the newfound Italian Pub theme.
In 2011, Pizza Plant bought a freestanding former restaurant on Transit Road at Sheridan Drive, taking on an ambitious remodeling project to turn a drive through bakery into an Italian Pub. Now complete, guests at Pizza Plant's most recent location are amazed by the elegant design, thirty rotating craft brews on tap and the comfortable pub like ambiance.
At the April Business after Hours networking event, Pizza Plant will be presented with a plaque in recognition of this honor. Business after Hours will be held on Tuesday, April 17, 2013 from 5pm - 7pm at the Fox Valley Country Club, located at 6161 Genesee Street in Lancaster.
Pizza Plant was chosen by the Business Resource Council to receive this award precisely due to their most recent store location. The Council applauds the restaurant's determination and dedication to turning a long-vacant storefront into a thriving business once again.
Members in good standing of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce may apply to have a business considered for the Member Success Story Showcase Award by completing an application and submitting it to Kim Whelan, director of member relations, by fax at 716.632.0548 or email.
