When pizza comes to Washington, D.C., what’s on tap?
Posted On July 5, 2021
As pizza deliveries begin arriving in D.U., a small group of chefs and foodies have been taking their own delivery trucks to Washington to cook and deliver pizza.
As the pizza deliveries roll into town, Dwayne Keesling is looking forward to the taste and texture of the food.
Keeslings restaurant, Pizza Delivery, in Georgetown, Va., recently opened its first location, and the chef and pizza delivery driver has already received some first-hand feedback from customers.
“It’s great to see that we’re getting a lot of customers who really want to try it,” said Keesings co-owner Mike O’Donnell.
“They’re coming to the place, they’re seeing what it’s like, they like it, they have a lot to say about it.
They love the pizza and they love the delivery.
It’s really exciting for us.”
In the meantime, the chef has been busy preparing for the arrival of his own delivery truck, which he hopes will help bring in customers in his own neighborhood.
Keeings pizza delivery has already delivered pizza to a number of local businesses, including a number restaurants owned by the restaurant’s owners.
“There’s a few restaurants we’re going to have to have some sort of pizza delivery truck in front of, like the Pizzeria and the Pizza Delivery,” said O’Brien.
“They’re kind of in the middle of the city.
We’re going in to pick up a pizza and drive it to the restaurant, and then deliver it back to them,” he said.”
I hope we get to start a few more deliveries in the next week or so,” said chef Keesing.
“We just have to get them on the road and see if they’re willing to drive.”
In an interview with The Washington Post, O’Connor said that his delivery truck would be a different sort of food truck.
He hopes to add more delivery options in the coming weeks and months, including truck rentals and custom trucks.
“You’ve got to go to a truck and say, ‘I’ll come pick you up from here, and you’ve got my pizza and your wine,'” said Ock.
“I don’t have a fleet of trucks and I’m not really sure if we’ll be able to put up a restaurant or a delivery service.
I want to make sure that we have a great delivery experience, and I think we can do that.”
