Where’s the Beef (pt2), Bankruptcy and Fire Roasted Goodness.

by Shawn · 0 comments

Well that didn’t last long.  As soon as we find a suitable beef topping, it gets discontinued by our distributor so we can no longer obtain it.  The search will have to continue I suppose.  Last I checked the restaurants still had a small supply, so if you liked it, get it while you can.

In other news, sandwiched in between the government fighting on how much or how little to cut from the budget and Tanya Harding’s pregnancy, you might have heard a blurb about Round Table Pizza filing for bankruptcy.  Here is a link to an article with the official press release from Round Table, but I’ll highlight the important part:

“This action will not impact Round Table’s 148 franchisees that operate 355 independently owned Round Table Pizza restaurants on the West Coast. Round Table Pizza, Inc. said that it will close some unprofitable, company-owned restaurants but stressed that most of its company-owned locations and all of its franchised locations will remain open, with minimal impact on consumers.”

We are not going out of business and closing our doors.  This action only affects company-owned stores (mainly concentrated in California) and does not affect independently owned stores such as ours (all the Round Table Pizza’s in Washington are independently owned and operated).  While, like everyone else, we have been feeling the pinch of this economy, it will be business as usual for us.  We are doing fine.  You don’t have to worry about your favorite pizza going away.

In other news, we have a new line of pizzas out.  They are called the “Fire Roasted Pizzas” and feature a creamy Chipotle sauce.  For $12 you can get a large Fire-Roasted Veggie which includes roasted onions and peppers, roasted tomatoes and green onions, for $14 you can get the Fire-Roasted Pepperoni or Fire-Roasted Chicken and Bacon pizzas.  They include all the toppings listed on the veggie plus your choice of (yup, you guessed it) either pepperoni or chicken and bacon.  I have personally tried the new pizzas and the new creamy chipotle sauce is very good, so come down and give it a try.  We also have new Chipotle-Cheddar Twists as well which feature the creamy chipotle sauce if you want to try the new sauce, but just can’t stop ordering your favorite Round Table Pizza, add some Chipotle-Cheddar Twists to your order.

One other bit of news.  Our manager in Bellingham has been working with our alcohol distributors to bring in a whole bunch of new wines, featuring many good northwest bottles.  We haven’t worked out the details yet, but we are thinking of hosting a wine-tasting event, where you will have the opportunity to sample some of these new wines paired with our gourmet pizzas.  So keep an eye on our blog, or better yet, like us on Facebook so you don’t miss the announcement!
