GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Downtown Green Bay is welcoming back an old friend.
Jake's Pizza re-opened for business Tuesday in the Broadway District.
“It was the – that was the place to go,” Amanda Novitski of Greenleaf told FOX 11. “It’s just delicious.”
“It was always good pizza – you never had to wonder what it was going to be,” said Ron Gossen of De Pere.
Jake's Pizza closed on Main Street nearly two years ago. However, two sisters with restaurant experience decided to end that pizza drought by bringing the pies back, this time on South Broadway.
“He actually tried to talk us out of it the first few times,” Cara Sanders recalled of the phone calls, early on, with Ronald Jacobson – aka Jake.
Sanders and her sister, Brook, weren’t taking no for an answer. However, they wanted to ensure Jake gave them his blessing – and his recipes.
Jake did, and even decided to come back on to help the venture along with some former employees.
