A: Honestly, it was the signs. After I sold the restaurant (in 2017), I didn’t realize I still had the name (registered) and I called SaskTel and the number was still available. I still had the pizza boxes. So there was like three signs — everything was put in place. And we found a place, and it was perfect on 8th Street. It was God’s calling for me to come back again. Come back to life.
I didn’t think I was going to open again — especially by myself — it’s too much headache just for one person. But (Sam) said we should open another In N’ Out Pizza.
Q: What’s on the menu besides pizza?
A: We have appetizers, salads, we have pasta. It’s a lot of finger food. But our main food is our pizza, of course. And our pasta is very good. Our lasagna is so good — homemade lasagna.
We also offer catering services. Right now of course with COVID-19, we haven’t done as much. We’ve had a few of them — like 15 people or 10 people, a birthday party. But we do up to 250 to 500 if you would like. And it’s not just the food here. If you want, for example, roast beef, steak or chicken (we can do that). When I used to own in Martensville, it was a pizza place, but then I changed it to a restaurant — it was a family-style restaurant. So I do have all that experience. I’ve done a few weddings in Martensville, a few birthday parties.
Q: What makes In n’ Out pizza stand out from other pizza places?
A: Everything is made here in house. The dough is homemade. Every sauce I have is homemade — from my alfredo sauce to my meat sauce. My dressings — Caesar dressing and Greek dressing is homemade. It takes a long time, but I like to give customers quality, you know? They say, the sauce is the boss — as long as the sauce is good and the cheese is good, and I buy the high-end cheese. It’s pricey, but I’d rather give that good quality, instead of saving that $3 or $4 a bag.
