Don’t Shoot !!!

We’re only a lead in for the Pizza Man’s New Deal.

People are still struggling in our town.  We all keep reading that things are turning around. If you are like me, you wonder where that turn around is happening.  I cook for my friends and neighbors everyday.  We deliver to neighborhoods all around the store everyday.  We aren’t up in Tallahassee or D.C. . We are right here in your town.

Things are still pretty rough in this area.

We can’t work miracles, but we can squeeze a five out of a twenty.

Place an order with us for $20 dollars or more and we will take $5 off that order.


(Until I have made my point and come up with another cool promotion)

So, time’s awastin’

It doesn’t have to be that way

Who doesn’t remember those days? Heading to the cafeteria and either pulling out that same old sandwich or getting in line and waiting for you daily dose of institutional food.  I know, I know………seems like not much has changed. You have finished with those school days.  You have a job! Sure, it may save a little money to pack your own, but don’t you think you deserve a little better?  We do!!!

Now you may have fallen into the rut of driving to the golden arches and picking up a bag of semi-fresh burgers or you may stop somewhere and pick up one of the salads that were made yesterday (or the day before or the day before that).  May be, just may be you have called a local eatery that has delivered.  Most of the time, the conversation goes like this “you want italian, you want chinese, you want burgers?”….and a few of you  try to decide which will do for today. That is the way it is done all over south Florida.

chicken fried rice







Think about it…………… are sitting around trying to decide what to order for lunch.  It is hard to get everyone to agree. We get that.  We have a wide variety of items on our menu. You can order pizza, calzone, burgers, salads, etc.

We try to cover all the bases.  We know, no body wants the same thing every day of the week.

Then there is that certain someone…………..they just want Chicken Fried Rice.  Everyone else can be agreed on subs. Everyone else can be agreed on pizza. Maybe everyone else is just looking for the low-carb salad.

Everyone but that certain someone.

Well, the month of June is officially….


chicken fried rice



We make it real simple, go to our website……      scroll through the menu……order for everyone else…….pizza, subs, salad……….whatever……………and then let us know…you have one of those folks that is always jonesing for Chicken Fried Rice. If your order totals more that $20……….print out this email, (OK blog readers, print out a copy of the blog) tellus that you have the copy of the email (or blog) and we will send along that chicken fried rice……..FREE.


My name is John MacArthur

I promise you that we will do our part to keep up with the Joneses.

5 is the only odd prime number that is not the base of an aliquot tree.

April 23, 2009

This is not an aliquot tree

     Now that we have cleared up that mystery ( I think it is important to keep your customers well informed) , I think we can stop and focus on the bigger issue. The number five. Now that is something to focus on. Have you ever noticed how prominent the number five (5) is in our everyday lives? 

     Stop and think about it. I just indented this paragraph 5 spaces. Each of my hands has five fingers and I walk on two healthy feet that have five toes on each foot. When I was just a boy, I learned to draw stars by connecting five dots.  I started school when I was five. The average work week has five days. Five has been a big number in my life. It seems five is just a big number in everyones life.


Everybody knows the joy of the “high five”.

     I suppose I began thinking about the number 5 when I looked at the calender and realized the May (the fifth month) is just around the corner. It is a time of transition here in South Florida. The traffic on the streets has returned to normal ( for you new comers, “cotton heads” is a term of endearment!). The lines in the stores have been reduced. Life is getting back to the leisurly pace that attracted us. Oh, we are getting ready for long days of beautiful Florida sunshine and delightful nights filled with tradewind breezes. The five month infiltration of “snowbirds” and month long siege of  “spring break” has come to an end.

Now I can celebrate . . . we have survived and it is time for my May celebration!



     You don’t have to search through any national publication to read about my offer. Nope, it is right here, right now. It is my annual tribute to the number 5 (notice that I plan this to occur in the fifth month and it begins on the fifth day before the fifth month).  O.K., I am announcing it a few days ahead of time, but, you are my customers and I love ya like a brother so here it is.

Every order you place that meets or exceeds $15 will receive a $5 discount.

Available for both take out and delivery.


    This is just my way of thanking you for your support. Now there are some restrictions. In order to receive the discount, you have to present a printed copy of this email that includes the from and to information.  If you are placing an order over the phone, you have to mention the coupon (email) when placing the order. The $5 will be deducted from your total. I need the email to keep track of this give away. Oh, did I mention that all coupons (copies of emails) that are turned in during our wild May give away will be entered into a drawing for a free 16″ pizza. Yep, and I will make that one myself and see that it is delivered to your door. (Another small rule, you have to be in our delivery area…sorry Dad, you will have to fly down and enter for a chance to win)


Makes my mouth water…………


So don’t just think about it, go ahead and print the email.

*** Hold on there blog readers. I know you are not reading an email. If you did not receive this offer in your in box, drop me a line at and I will send you the email so you can take advantage of our offer as well.

Downtown Pizza Grill’s Stimulus Plan

March 31, 2009
Leave a Comment

Everybody is talking about the economy. It does not take a rocket scientist to understand that it is not so good. Here in South Florida, we have taken more than our fair share of lumps in the last few years. The new President keeps introducing new plans to help get the economy moving again. Seems like the finance folks and big time investment people are at the top of his list.

Not here. Not in my neighborhood. Not in my store.


I know what it means to work hard. I built this business over the last 7 years and I will not let some hot shot on Wall Street create a situation that destroys my dream.


I will put my two cent’s and then some into this fight.

Print out a copy of this note and bring it in to my store.

I will give you $2.oo off any order of $10.00 or more.


You see, I still believe in this area and I will put my money where your mouth is !

(And that’s a Stimulus Plan you can sink your teeth in.)
