Pizza Guys Franchisee Shows What It Is to be a Pizza Guy
Rancho Cordova, CA, September 24, 2015– Pizza Guys Franchisee Scott Caster signs to gain access to a mobile pizza truck. He thought it would be a good addition to sales in his franchise areas, but then decided to take a turn toward those in need.
California is in a historic drought, and with that comes devastating wildfires. Fires were happening near his areas of operation so he combined his efforts with a group that he is associated with, First In Relief Efforts, and collected donations at his three owned locations. In addition, he drove the mobile pizza kitchen staffed with many volunteers, including his wife Danielle Caster, to the California Butte and Valley Fire Evacuation Centers providing free pizza to those who were displaced from their homes. This was made possible by a team of outstanding people who took time away from their jobs to help others.
“We were all so impressed with Scott’s willingness to serve, he found us and was eager to feed those in need. Our group was expecting pizza to be previously made and dropped off so when he arrived with a truck equipped with ovens and started making fresh hot pizza on the spot, it created excitement among our community that has been suffering with the unfortunate events. We didn’t have to find Scott to ask if he could come and feed the group, he found us. Scott is a kind and respectful business owner; we feel so blessed to have crossed his path.” -JoAnne Holmquist, Burson Full Gospel Church
Scott left a lasting impression on the volunteers and cheered up those who found themselves in an unfortunate time…but the real impressions were made on Scott by those who had lost everything, he enjoys serving others.
“It was so incredible arriving at the evacuation center with the Pizza Guys pizza truck. Once we parked, we received an ovation from the community members…it was nice to bring comfort to those who were in a moment of great need.” -Scott Caster, Pizza Guys Franchisee
Scott is constantly involved in community initiatives from schools, sports, and organizations. He has continued to show others what it means to be a member of the community as a business owner. Scott started out as a pizza maker in 1994 and worked his way up to now owning three locations: Woodland, Napa, and Davis. Pizza Guys looks forward to seeing continued growth, success, and community involvement from Scott.
Pizza Guys was started in 1986 by Shahpour Nejad and Reza Kalantari. Their goal was to create a pizza dedicated to quality and value while combining the fresh California flavor. They started franchising Pizza Guys in 1994. Pizza Guys currently has over 60 locations and franchising opportunities throughout California, Nevada and Oregon.
