I've always dreamed of opening up a pizzeria. As a wannabe urbanite, the location of my pizza joint would in a downtown location. In addition to pizza and a full-bar, the restaurant would also offer a full coffee bar and bakery. This would allow traffic to flow into my establishment from the early hours in the morning to the latest hours at night. The pizza would be cooked in brick oven, exposed for all to see. The interior would be dimly lit. The walls would be the original brick. In addition to a dining area, there would be living room furniture scattered across the board. If you would like to eat your pizza on a couch, so be it!
I wouldn't require any of the employees to wear a uniform. They could wear whatever they please. All I ask of them is that they wear an apron, to differentiate them from the customers. They'd still be able to choose their own apron. A personable staff is a must.
Similar to some other establishments outside of Southeast Kansas, there would be many activities through out the week to bring people in; Game Night, Trivia Night, Karaoke Night, book reading clubs, and live music!
