This week Anza residents may find a new place to enjoy delicious pizza and a pitcher of beer, watch their favorite sports team on big screen TV while the children play new electronic games in the next room of the expected to open Pizza Factory on Barham Road just off Highway 371.
For a quieter afternoon or evening, those craving something a little different for their palates will find tasty Thai food and other special meals at the reopened Community Café at the Community Hall in the downtown village
Both locations sport new up-to-date kitchens and a variety of soft drinks and healthy food.
Anza resident Jordon Gitlin, his wife and new employees at the Pizza Factory that was expected to open this week have been working overtime to renovate the old Whiskey River Café, turning it into one of the finest Pizza Factory franchises in the West Coast.
Pizza Factory’s located up and down the West Coast bring with them places where family and friends can meet seven days a week to enjoy favorite American foods and pizza at reasonable prices.
“If all goes well we should be open Wednesday, April 19, “said Gitlin.
Gitlin and wife could be seen last week on the roof of the building painting over the worn-out ‘Café’ sign that has been there for many years. Residents entering the new Pizza Factory won’t recognize what has been accomplished since the new owners began working on it late last year.
Meanwhile, Chef Patchara Palmer, is back at work at the Community Café in the Anza Community Hall on Highway 371, preparing some outstanding Thai dishes for those seeking something deliciously different for their lunch or dinner.
Portions of the Hall’s kitchen have been completely renovated along with much of Hall itself that now sports complete new tile floors, better bathrooms and ADA approved ramps and walkways. Regular community and private special events are now resuming at the Hall, with the Café open to serve all who come Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Both locations provide takeout orders and have space available for community meetings or private parties.
