"Do That Dance!" - The One-Bite Review that started it all!
Nothing could have prepared us for the absolutely amazing response to this video from the fans of Dave Portnoy & Barstool Sports! The initial wave was over 4,000 orders, or 20,000 pizzas!
Johnny steps off the production line to give a quick update and say "Thank You!"
Johnny, Joey, Carlo, and Paulie show everyone the freezer truck that will make fulfilling the Portnoy Effect possible, and say a quick "Thank You!" to everyone who helped make this happen!
"Pizza is love!" - Shout Out from Dave Portnoy on our progress!
We are hard at work making pizzas and sourcing all the materials we need to fulfill our orders. After this shoutout, our total number of orders doubles!
The whole family working to pump out as many pizzas as possible!
During this first week, we still had to adhere to reduced hours at the Sweet Auburn Municipal Market, however after a few days of emails and phone calls, Johnny and Jessie were able to convince the market's management to allow us longer hours of operation to fulfill the Portnoy Effect.
Due to supply chain issues and newly implemented ordering limits as a result of Covid-19 lockdowns, we had to source our products from a number of different vendors. The biggest challenge was finding a new source for our Insulated Shipping Bags.
The demand for the Coldkeepers had grown so high with hospitals buying up their stock in anticipation of a future vaccine, that when we went to place an order the day after the One-Bite Review, we discovered they were on backorder for two months.
Luckily, we were able to replace this product with Uline, another great company that we highly recommend.
A similar issue arises with acquiring Dry Ice - what little local facilities are able to make with reduced staff is reserved for medical purposes only.
This forces us to continue cold-shipping with frozen gel packs for the beginning of the Portnoy Effect.
Once again, Uline was able to keep us supplied with this essential product until local Dry Ice manufacturers could reopen at full production.
The Portnoy Effect reaches every State!
We also have requests to ship our pizzas internationally, but America First!
Our cousins Annie, Johnnie, and Jimmie close their pizza shop, The Famous Brick Oven Pizzeria on Beech Mountain, NC to come help us in Atlanta for a week! Of course we had to celebrate with some High Noon!
