Ro­mano’s is pizza king

The Advocate (Perth) - - WHAT'S ON PLANNER -

EL­LEN­BROOK busi­ness Ro­mano’s Pizze­ria has been named Aus­tralian Cham­pion Fast Food Store at the Aus­tralian Small Busi­ness Cham­pion Awards.

The restau­rant was an­nounced the win­ner at the award cer­e­mony in Sydney ear­lier this month.

Ro­mano’s Pizze­ria owner and chef Lau­rance Ro­mano said it was thrilling to re­ceive na­tional recog­ni­tion.

He said the award was a credit to his young team of em­ploy­ees and his big­gest sup­porter, his wife Cristina.

“While there were nu­mer­ous take­away es­tab­lish­ments of­fer­ing “cheap eats” across Perth, I found the prod­uct and ser­vice be­ing of­fered was of­ten of a poor qual­ity,” he said.

“By set­ting up Ro­mano’s Pizze­ria, ini­tially in Con­nolly and then open­ing a sec­ond store in El­len­brook, I wanted to prove that it was pos­si­ble to eat well on a low bud­get with­out com­pro­mis­ing the prod­uct or ser­vice.”

The store won the 2014 Com­mon­wealth Bank Small Busi­ness Award for Best New Busi­ness and awards for Best Pizza and Best Cheap Eats in WA cateogories of the I Love Food Awards in 2014.

Mr Ro­mano said his busi­ness would only con­tinue to grow.
