“We’ve Got a Delivery To Make”
Guido’s Pizza drives 1,500 miles to deliver pizza for wedding
Oxford, Michigan –Guido’s pizza founder Shawn McGuire received a phone call from Clint Bryant, owner of Guido’s Pontiac franchise, “We’ve got a delivery to make.” And deliver they did.
McGuire and Bryant drove 1,500 miles to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to deliver a Big G pizza with pepperoni, onions and banana peppers to groom Jeff Ringold and his bride Kelly Nelson. Ringold and his friend Jonathan Lawson used to live near Guido’s Pizza in Pontiac, Michigan and regularly enjoyed Big G pizzas together. Both men eventually moved to Florida and often longed for their favorite pizza. Lawson knew it was a long shot but he wanted his wedding gift to be a Guido’s pizza so he called Michigan.
“He wanted to know if we could freeze the pizzas and send them down,” said McGuire. “But we only serve fresh pizza so we arranged to make it happen.” McGuire and Bryant first made sure the dough, cheese and toppings would travel and stay fresh for 24 hours. After multiple phone calls they found a pizzeria in near Ft. Lauderdale willing to open their kitchen. “It couldn’t have happened without Pizza Machine in Hollywood Florida, they let us use their kitchen on the day of the wedding,” said McGuire.
On Friday morning, September 26 the Guido’s van headed to Florida. McGuire and Bryant drove through the night to make sure they arrived with enough time for the dough to rise. After a quick lunch at the beach they did a dry run to make sure they could find the Ritz Carlton in Ft. Lauderdale where the reception was being held, “It’s a good thing we did our research because we couldn’t find the place,” said McGuire
