As a small business owner I try to support any new business/mom & pop. When you open the 8th pizzeria in a small town and close soon after- I really have no sympathy. Seems in NJ, someone comes to a town and says `hey you know what,the other 7 long term pizza places in town don`t have anything on me,I need to open up another pizza joint` (I think its the same folks who open up an `Italian Deli` that simply think stacking imported pastas up on wire racks shelves,slap a Boars head sign in the window and miraculously an Italian delis is born). Where are the demographic studies people? How about opening something NOT in town already. BBQ/Fried Chix/Mexican/ Greek/etc etc. I`m all for pizza,but c`mon, so my question to you is, my small town has 7 pizza joints (not including Dominos and the bar pies you can get at the pubs). How many does your town have and do you think its`s too many already?? (Oh yes we have 4 chinese take outs & 1 chinese buffet thats teh next topic ,along the same line!) Plus does NJ have more per capita pizza places or what?
