Congratulations to our niece Olivia Frank, who was named to the homecoming court at her school, Grove City Christian. Congratulations, too, to my sister Jean and brother-in-law Mark, who got to walk Olivia out onto the football field for the festivities.
You know, Olivia looks like she was born wearing a tiara.
Our Dad ran a business, and he would be proud of what Joe has done with JT’s Pizza. It takes some courage to start a business — statistics tell us that a lot of new start-ups fail within the first year — but Joe has produced tasty products, focused on customer service, paid attention to the bottom line, and grown the business from a shop that prepared pizzas for the bar next door’s patrons to an operation that now offers an extensive menu and has lots of carry-out and delivery customers in addition to providing the food service at the Bier Stube North. Buying the Bier Stube North and consolidating the operations is a big next step, but it’s also a logical one. And it all starts with pretty darned good pizza.
So here’s a tip of the cap to JT’s Pizza and Pub and its owner Joe Hartnett, one of those small business owners who take risks, create jobs, and help our economy grow. If you find yourself in north Columbus with a hankering for a pizza, a Philly cheese steak sub, or a cold adult beverage, stop by JT’s Pizza and Pub, won’t you?
