I want to again congratulate Taste of Buffalo Pizzeria for being an Honorable Mention in our 2014 Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year. As our 2014 Board Chair Hilary Broadway cited, we have approx. 1,000 business members and more than 850 are what we would consider Small Business. We also had 18 submissions for this award. I think your selection is a testament to your vision and hard work and that of your staff! I saw that you have already included notice of this on your website. I thought you might also want to include the photo of you, Huntersville Mayor Jill Swain, and myself. I have attached that photo and copied Mayor Swain.
As a customer myself, I really enjoy not only your delicious sandwiches and pizzas but you, your wife and your daughter always make customer’s feel at home. Again, it is always exciting to hear a Huntersville and Lake Norman regional businesses is not only thriving but growing. Congratulations again and I look forward to stopping in shortly to sample the wings you are always speaking to me about. Great job!!!
President – Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce
The Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce has recognized Donna and Brad (owners of Taste of Buffalo Pizzeria) as Honorable Mention for Small Business of the Year 2014 throughout the entire LKN area! Thank you to the LKN Chamber for your recognition! Thank you to all TOBP Fans all over NC!
The spectacle and tradition of the NFL Super Bowl – from the parties to the commercials, half-time shows to game-winning drives – is practically its own industry.
According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, an estimated 179 million people tuned into last year’s matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. The average game-watcher spent an estimated $68.54 on new televisions for viewing parties, snacks, decor and athletic apparel, bringing total spending to nearly $12.3 billion, the organization estimated.
So when there’s that much money for the taking, it’s no wonder Charlotte-area small businesses want to carve out their own piece of Super Bowl XLVIII’s Denver-Broncos-versus-Seattle Seahawks pie.
Which is why this weekend poses a perfect opportunity for them to raise their local profile through a few winning strategies of their own.
Western New York natives Donna and Bradley Battaglia opened the Taste of Buffalo Pizzeria in Huntersville 10 years ago to be a haven for people who prefer thicker crust, chicken-finger subs, fish fries and, of course, buffalo wings.
They’ve built a devoted following in the past decade, Donna Battaglia said, and about 80 percent of their customers are also from New York. So last year they decided to make big events such as the Super Bowl a way to thank customers for their support by doing a drawing for a big LED flat-screen television on Pro Bowl Sunday.
“We appreciate everything they do for us,” Donna Battaglia said. And last year’s winner – a woman who said she’d “never won anything in her life” – was incredibly thankful.
In the weeks leading up this year’s game, anyone who spent $25 or more got an entry in the drawing. And by giving the TV away a week before the main event, the Battaglias ensured that their restaurant would be crowded for the much-less-hyped Pro Bowl (you have to be present to claim the prize), while also giving the lucky winner time to set it up for a home-viewing party for the big game.
A week before this year’s drawing for a 55-inch LED flat-screen television, Donna Battaglia said they already had more than 500 entries.
The Battaglias also acknowledge that many of their customers won’t be dining in for the Super Bowl, she said.
That’s why they’re offering delivery and takeout specials, such as a combo pack of 24 pieces of pizza and 50 wings for $56.99.
Last year, they sold 10,000 buffalo wings, Donna Battaglia said. This year, they’re hoping for 15,000.
