If you are "of the Redwoods" why is your ISP location in union city?
Stupid browser, don't know why it showed Union City... Eureka actually. As far as why it went out of business, ask the thousands of others who went out of business in this country during this continuing recession, I'm sure it wasn't because all of them had bad products or services as you seem to generalize.

It all depends on your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and where they base their servers. I'm in Vacaville and utilize ATT.net . But with a dynamic IP Address, my server location shifts daily. It may be in San Jose one day and Union City the next and in Berkeley the next.

They are nothing like pizza pucks!! Not even close.. And pucks can't be copied... Sliders are nothing more then small pizzas... Pucks are not small pizzas... They are like cinnamon rolls with pizza inside..

"I" know that; "You" know that, but the average person doesn't and unfortately PH has more money to advertise than PP. I like the Pucks and wish them well..........

OK, so it's a small Calzone. That sure doesn't sound too hard to duplicate to me. Maybe the reason none of the big boys are selling them is because there really is not a market for them.

I wonder if the shape and style of the pizza puck is copyrighted

Food can't be copyrighted; only the names & such can be righted and trademarked....

That's why more than McDonald's can make hamburgers and all the chains keep recipies a secret. Jack in the Box cannot use Big Mac, but... The Bonus Jack sells well..........

Recipies can't be righted either, but a cookbook can. Therefor you can reprint recipies from a cookbook, but not the book in the same form.....

Pizza Pucks would have a hard time on Shark Tank.

Now, this one is for you, The_Solution... You can have a nice cold one too at Pizza Pucks!!!!

I think that Pizza Pucks would have a very difficult time competing with Pizza Hut now that they're making "Pizza Sliders." Pizza Hut has the economic advantage of being a global corporation and all the resources that come with it.

Still, I stick to my claim that, except for a trip to Rome & Naples a few years ago, I've not had a decent pizza since leaving Manhattan for California 38 years ago. However, I do wish Pizza Pucks the best of luck and, out of objectivity, I'll give it a try when & if they open shop.

If you think the frozen pizza is good, you should try it fresh in Chicago. I grew up on the south side of Chicago and that pizza was a staple in my diet for many years.

I hope you enjoy it Chicago style. That being cut in squares and not in slices. You will end up with four little diamond shaped pieces. I always referred to them as pizza bites.

Florida? Here in Vacaville, I sure wish we could get deep fried Conch Fritters and a cold tankard of beer like I had at Sloppy Joe's Bar in Key West!

I went by there on Friday and not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. This has got to be the slowest remodel in history.

What are you saying Jer, are you giving up on the failing insurance office and planning a new career as a pizza slinger?

My take on. Things is that either the guy doesn't really have the capital that he thought he. Had or he is having second thoughts on the crappy location where every food joint before him failed miserably, or a combination of the two.

Let me help you all out, I can see you have never built anything in Vacaville! I have been involved in numerous building projects in this town and it always takes longer than any other place I have ever dealt with. And I heard that the city is trying to also add an SI Fee of around 30K when that has been paid by previous developers. IV seen restaurants take up to a year to get built in this town, its ridicules. And as far as the location? Pizza Pucks draws and it's almost impassable to get a location with a drive thru in Vacaville. Soooo, don't be so quick to judge someone or something you know nothing about. Unless of course you own successful restaurants yourself?
