Customer of the Month - Dagwoods Pizza

Posted by Tricia Hoy on Thu, Mar 31, 2016 @ 08:03 AM

It’s not every day a customer brings you flowers.

The best moment at this year’s Pizza Expo had to be the special delivery of a bright and beautiful bouquet of flowers, accompanied by a thank you letter and this great photo of the high-energy team at Dagwoods.

We couldn’t resist honoring them right back as our Customer of the Month.

He has grown the business through hard work,  perfecting the traditional Dagwoods recipes to deliver the best pizza in the area.
