Join me for the next stop on my “Follow Me on Friday” tour this Friday, April 20th, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. as I welcome a new business to the 49th Ward–Felice’s Roman Style Pizza, 6441 N. Sheridan Rd (in the Granada Center). Felice’s will be offering up a complimentary slice of their fresh, homemade pizza and free soft drinks. Parking is available in the Granada Center garage.
It’s always great to have a new restaurant in the neighborhood, but what makes Felice’s special is that it is run and managed by Loyola University of Chicago undergraduate students. In fact, Felice’s is the ONLYstudent-run and managed pizzeria in the nation. From the business plan and running the store, to making the pizzas from scratch, students oversee all facets of the business, including operations, finance, human resources and marketing.
Felice’s pizza is made in true thin-crust Roman style. They also offer delicious soups and fresh salads to complement their pizza.
Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and community organizations. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or organization where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
