Peculiar Pizza Chain Owner

Friday, 23 September 2005 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

Let’s say you have a chain of pizza places, and you’ve taken the bold leap of naming them after YOU. Every pizza place has your last name in there.

Recently, a local pizza chain owner (who has his last name in the chain name) was arrested for trying to arrange to meet a 14-yr-old girl for sex. The "girl" was a Tucson detective in a chat room. Oops!

This guy made the news again last week when he was arrested again, this time on 7 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. That’s right, they got him for possessing child porn.

Talk about bad marketing, if you had seen the news story of either arrest, would you EVER go to that pizza place again? If that were your FAVORITE pizza in town, would you go back? I know that when I drive by one of his places and see his last name hanging up there, my reaction is, "Oooooooo! :("
