Cynthia McClaskey has approximately eight years experience in single unit operations and management with a local, Louisiana-based pizza company, as well as another 20 years of experience in customer relations and marketing within the restaurant industry.
Having spent over 30 years each in the industry, Kirk and Scott decided they wanted to build something special. . . something different. . . something amazing. Watching the trends in the food industry take a turn to fast-casual dining, the McClaskeys and Miller decided it was time to bring Louisiana a fast-casual concept that not only focused on speed of service, but excellence in customer hospitality.
As Louisiana locals, they have incorporated the authentic Cajun flavors of South Louisiana into their "create your own," Signature, and Chef-inspired, pizzas. Their goal is to offer the freshest ingredients possible to their guests while maintaining high standards in all areas of their operations.
