It’s an­other chap­ter in a very suc­cess­ful Alexan­drabased busi­ness, ‘Pisa Pizza’ which opened in Septem­ber 2004. Ini­tially a small lo­cal and friendly take­away pizza shop, the first stage of ex­pan­sion

oc­curred in 2007, when Ole’ Termnu­wong joined the busi­ness owned by Bruce Wal­lis and the Thai kitchen was added. Some nine years later an­other stage in this busi­nesses devel­op­ment will oc­cur when the doors are opened on ‘Bangkok Eatery (Thai and Sushi) at Ter­race Junc­tion in Frank­ton. Hav­ing al­ready suc­cess­fully ex­panded into Oa­maru in 2010 when ‘Bangkok Recipe’ was opened, it is now the turn of the Cen­tral-Lakes District to em­brace this new eat­ing place and sam­ple their de­li­cious menus. Bruce and Ole’s phi­los­o­phy in their busi­nesses is to ‘Look af­ter the Lo­cals’, which means res­i­dents in the Frank­ton, Lake Hayes, Queen­stown and sur­round­ing ar­eas can be as­sured they are able to have easy ac­cess to good qual­ity food at an af­ford­able price. Ole’ says they are ex­tremely proud of ev­ery dish that they send out from their kitchens in terms of the qual­ity of the food, and is an as­pect which is con­sis­tent across all three venues. How­ever, they do plan to in­clude a range of prod­ucts into their Queen­stown out­let which only those liv­ing in the lo­cal area will have ex­clu­sive ac­cess to. And the most pop­u­lar item on the menu? Hav­ing a pizza shop helped the team to cre­ate their sig­na­ture en­tre´ e dish which is Ham and Cheese Won­tons, although their Rice Pat­ties are prov­ing to be pop­u­lar and com­pli­ment many of the other dishes they sell. Step in­side the doors of all three eater­ies in Frank­ton, Alexan­dra and Oa­maru, and the level of ser­vice peo­ple can ex­pect will be ex­cep­tional. ‘‘Our team are highly ex­pe­ri­enced and mo­ti­vated. Their East­ern ser­vice-at­ti­tude is one of the main rea­sons we asked them to join the team,’’ Ole’ said. Es­tab­lish­ing their var­i­ous busi­nesses has en­abled them to share the good prod­ucts they cre­ate and have a steady list of re­turn clien­tele who will read­ily vouch for the yummy food avail­able from them. So when you visit the new Frank­ton ‘ Bangkok Eatery and Thai’, make sure you say hello to Gibb, the main restau­rant man­ager, Prasit and Mon the Thai chefs who are al­ready well-known in the Queen­stown area, and Keita the Sushi Chef. And if you time it right, there’s ev­ery chance that Ole’ will be on site to pre­pare your menu se­lec­tion.
