“ The old pizzeria had closed. However, there was a demand for this type of business. So we did some research to find the right place with the help of the municipality. We are installed in the old grocery store of the town, in the city center. And everything is going great »says Driss Aguidr, 38, who with his brother already owned several businesses – pizzerias, sandwich shops, sushi shops in the Paris region.
Pizza Roma is open every day of the week from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and offers pizzas, salads and paninis to take away or free delivery, ten kilometers around Ailly-sur-Noye.
A team of five people prepare, manufacture and deliver daily, mainly pizzas by car and electric scooter. ” Customers come from all over the Val de Noye and even from Amiens for their pizzas. We have loyal customers, like those at the music center opposite or at the town hall. We are very happy with the welcome we received on our arrival, especially by local merchants such as the baker opposite, or the gift shop next to the pizzeria. » Work was necessary to put the pizzeria in the colors of Pizza Roma, with a counter, a green wall, partitions, a glass roof and televisions in height.
The challenge of entrepreneurship
” We were born in France, in Normandy. After studying in Beauvais, I opened my first pizzeria at the age of 24. My brothers followed and in particular Nordine, in Bresles and Méru, in the Oise. We are also present in Montdidier and Poix-de-Picardie. Our trademark is our homemade pizza dough and our selection of fresh vegetables. I have to admit that since the age of 16, I’ve had a knack for pizza dough. So, today, we train young people who want to get started in turn. The pizza market is still very profitable »assures the entrepreneur who made the choice to open at the end of the day following his market study.
In the top 3 pizzas that Val de Noye customers love are the very gourmet Supreme Kentucky, the delicious four cheeses and the classic Queen. ” We don’t hesitate to invent some from time to time.”, concludes the boss, whose next goal would be to open a delivery sandwich shop.
“Today there are enough pizzerias, especially in Amiens. We are not looking to settle in big cities where there are already a lot of offers. What motivates us are challenges, entrepreneurship, and giving our all. Here, there is no routine and above all we meet people. It is very exciting on a daily basis. »
