INDUSTRY NEWS
Pizza World Owner Darren Melamed gave away a a free Large Cheese Pizza this past Sunday, for any donation ($36 and up) towards the Kevurah of Howard Weiss, who Darren described as "my mentor and predecessor of the original Los Angeles pizza place, right here, Kosher Nostra." Click here for the link. "Howard opened Kosher Nostra in 1978. He was known for his witty humor, creativity, violin playing (people said he was like Tevya from Fiddler on the roof), his quirkiness and his intimidating persona. He then opened a very popular fast food Chinese restaurant Peking Tam. After that, he opened/built the largest chain of six kosher restaurants; two in the valley, two on Pico along with the existing two(which I became the manager of). At one point earlier on, he opened another Pizza place in Palm Springs. Two other pizza stores, grew out of Kosher Nostra; his pizza cook opened La Pizza in the valley and one of his pizza guys, who I had worked with, went to be the main guy at Pizza Mayven on LaBrea. His best accomplishment, was marrying his sweet wife Rachel in 1986. Howard’s health issues and care he needed of late have squandered much of his funds. Please join me in helping out this Los Angeles icon, in helping carry out his final wish; burial in Israel. BDE." Click here to weigh in.
 
Grubhub featured a promotion for free lunch on 5/17/22. A lot of people took advantage of it, and the influx meant that … not a lot of people were happy.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again, as the old adage goes. Click here for examples of how restaurants handled the influx of orders.

Pizza World Owner Darren Melamed gave away a a free Large Cheese Pizza this past Sunday, for any donation ($36 and up) towards the Kevurah of Howard Weiss, who Darren described as "my mentor and predecessor of the original Los Angeles pizza place, right here, Kosher Nostra." Click here for the link. "Howard opened Kosher Nostra in 1978. He was known for his witty humor, creativity, violin playing (people said he was like Tevya from Fiddler on the roof), his quirkiness and his intimidating persona. He then opened a very popular fast food Chinese restaurant Peking Tam. After that, he opened/built the largest chain of six kosher restaurants; two in the valley, two on Pico along with the existing two(which I became the manager of). At one point earlier on, he opened another Pizza place in Palm Springs. Two other pizza stores, grew out of Kosher Nostra; his pizza cook opened La Pizza in the valley and one of his pizza guys, who I had worked with, went to be the main guy at Pizza Mayven on LaBrea. His best accomplishment, was marrying his sweet wife Rachel in 1986. Howard’s health issues and care he needed of late have squandered much of his funds. Please join me in helping out this Los Angeles icon, in helping carry out his final wish; burial in Israel. BDE." Click here to weigh in.

I have a unique opportunity I want to bring to you. For many years GKR has had a float in the Celebrate Israel Parade. For the past 2 years, the parade didn't happen but this year it's back (Sunday, May 22nd - which is just a few weeks away) and I'm hoping we can do a float again. Click here for photos from previous years where the restaurant logo appears on the float and you get to have at least 2 people to be on the float. It costs many thousands to do the float, but if we get places to chip in evenly it's reasonable. It doesn't have to be a restaurant, but anything food or kosher related would be good. If you're interested it would be only $500. Let me know ASAP if interested as we have limited space. Ideal for Manhattan restaurants and ones with multiple locations. It's seen by tens of thousands of people in person and on TV.
 
Right after Pesach, we hit a milestone, and given all the Pesach content I posted, it's no wonder why. We have just hit 68,000 members on the Facebook group. Amazing feat as we keep growing and climbing. Still the largest kosher food group in the world. And together with our sister Instagram account, we have over 100,000 contacts. Pretty cool. Thanks for being with us. Click here to check out our post announcing this impressive feat., and to weigh in.

I have a unique opportunity I want to bring to you. For many years GKR has had a float in the Celebrate Israel Parade. For the past 2 years, the parade didn't happen but this year it's back (Sunday, May 22nd - which is just a few weeks away) and I'm hoping we can do a float again. Click here for photos from previous years where the restaurant logo appears on the float and you get to have at least 2 people to be on the float. It costs many thousands to do the float, but if we get places to chip in evenly it's reasonable. It doesn't have to be a restaurant, but anything food or kosher related would be good. If you're interested it would be only $500. Let me know ASAP if interested as we have limited space. Ideal for Manhattan restaurants and ones with multiple locations. It's seen by tens of thousands of people in person and on TV.
 
Right after Pesach, we hit a milestone, and given all the Pesach content I posted, it's no wonder why. We have just hit 68,000 members on the Facebook group. Amazing feat as we keep growing and climbing. Still the largest kosher food group in the world. And together with our sister Instagram account, we have over 100,000 contacts. Pretty cool. Thanks for being with us. Click here to check out our post announcing this impressive feat., and to weigh in.
