Anyone know what the hell happened to My Dad's Pizza near flatwoods? The spent a shitton of money remodeling it, then suddenly just stopped showing up for work. I loved this pizza, best in the tri state. I was just wondering if anyone had heard anything, if they will be reopening, or if they are gone for good.

That Hobie gave it to his son Chad and he couldn't run the business because he was too busy cheating on his wife (step sister) with some employees.

I heard it was because the son that was running it had gotten a DUI... And with Hoby already in jail it left nobody to run the place.

none of this is right? I am good friends with his stepdaughters and I know more about the situation than most. Chad did get at DUI but the pizza place shut down before that happend. The pizza place shut down because of employees that took advantage of chad being a young , nice , manager. They took advantage, and he didnt know how to say "no" because he was too worried about his employess liking him. I think he learned his lesson though and i think if he was given another chance that he could really do something with that place. Hoby is going to re-open the pizza place when he gets out and can monitor it himself. I hope he does put chad back in there. He knew what he was doing. He made the pizza taste 10 times better.

I had heard that they went under because of Andy Moore's involvement. Andy was the original one to blame as he was running it while Hoby was imprisoned. Andy however tried turning it into his own bbq restaurant and was spending way too much of food such as steaks and seafood. Obviously this was not a great idea for a pizza place and the food costs were too high vs. intake costs. It was then they cut Andy out of the picture and tried salvaging what was left. If anyone to blame it's Andy Moore and not Hoby or his son. His son was given a sinken ship to work with and not enough time to turn it around. Granted under his sons leadership the store wasn't up to par - but you are only as good as your employees you surround yourself with. If I was Hoby I would have made manager the gentleman who was working there that used to be the manager at Little Ceasers. He seemed to have more experience than Hoby or his son when it comes to pizza management. He should have been in charge and Hoby could have been his assistant manager while learning how to run a business. I know many of times I'd order pizza there and the orders would be backed up way beyond the pick-up times given and half the time they were wrong when they did come out of the oven.

I hope they do re-open and I hope Hoby's son gets another chance as he really didn't have much time to turn things around. This would make a great learning lesson for him.

I don't know any of the folks discussed in this conversation personally. I'm simply an outsider. So I can't really given any "exclusive" first hand news or accounts of what really happened aside from what was told that happened.

What happened to Andy Moore running it?
Why did they spend all that money turning it into a pizza/bbq joint if he was just going to kick Andy to a curb?
