LOL. They can come to Toronto? They're already super successful in Hamilton so why do they have to come to Toronto? I love how you always dictate what businesses should do without knowing their circumstances.
He means they should open another location in Toronto. Obviously keep the Hamilton location as is. But if they are successful and have a great product, the demand is there in Toronto.

I know what he meant, and I suspect the quality wouldn't be the same if a mom and pop business opened a second location in Toronto.

I am pretty sure they have multiple people that know how to make the pizzas. Should it's possible to send one of them to another location if needed. I am sure this place has more than 5 employees.

They do, however, most restaurants do decrease in quality as they expand, so I'd prefer they just keep to their one location.

That's the point. If they're so successful, expansion into Toronto is smart.
I'm sure as hell not going to go all the way out there. If they're so great they can come to Toronto.
They're so successful, why not come to Toronto?
Quit saying that a business has to fail if it wants to come to Toronto. I mean like, really....

Maybe they're perfectly happy running their single very successful location rather than having the stress of running multiple locations? Life isn't only about making as much money as possible.

They can do just fine opening a second location in Toronto.
There's no need to go all the way out to Hamilton.
Not gonna happen.

WTF is that supposed to mean? If I was already making more than enough money, why would I go through the hassle of finding a space in Toronto, hiring new employees, having to travel back and forth between 2 cities, etc. You're only looking at this from your point of view. They may have a life outside of their business.

You may not want to go Hamilton, but for many people it's less than an hour's drive and not a big deal.

I'm going to stop responding now since this is getting off topic, and I know you always need to have the last response.

So only a failing business should open in Toronto. I understand...

If they opened a location here in GTA, they would do a killing.

had some in Orlando 6 years ago for the first time and it was ok, had the all meat in Las Vegas last month and it was amazing - one of those food nirvana moments for me, and I was sober!

This place was amazing when they first opened... lots of pepperoni, cheese and sausage in their classic.
I went yesterday to watch the Raptors game since its nearby... I ordered a pint + slice for $10 which is a very reasonable price.
The pitchers were only $12.
But they gotten so stingy on the meat and cheese in their pizza... It was very bland. It doesn't do the Chicago deep dish style any justice.

I notice the place has turned into a bit of a local watering hole. It would explain the cheap drinks and the clientele it attracts. But I guess its nice I can have a place near by to watch the raptors game with cheap drinks.

I tried this place last year. First time I ordered barely any toppings and cheese, cheese not was not even cooked properly and it was soggy. Then the 2nd time, better toppings but still not very good. They need a lot of work to improve. The crust was soggy and the sauce is too sweet.

That sounds inconsistent.
I got 2 pies from them within their first 1/2 year and found both to be good. It wasn't an AMAZING pizza or anything... but it at least had flavor and plentiful cheese/meat. As expected with a deep dish style.

Looks like you got duds despite going there early on. I thought the poor quality was one of those things where a place starts out good, then quality declines in the name of profit!

I also remember early on... They were pretty strict about the minimum orders. Dine in had to be a small... and they had one size that was for take out only or something like that... But there was restrictions. Now they got that $10 slice + beer... Even noticed a student special slice + pop.
