In addition to the brand new look, complete with a kids zone, plans also include enhancing the menu with things like freshly made onion rings and appetizers. To ensure they get it right from the start, the new owners hired a consultant with impressive pizza restaurateur credentials, Glenn Cybulski, who also just happens to be a part-time neighbor and friend of the Hoovers. In addition to his consulting work for other restaurants, the Travel Channel and television show Food Wars, Glenn also owns a chain of pizza restaurants. As an executive chef trained in Italy, he has won more than 80 culinary awards.
