Winner of the Bored Room Bistro 12,500 pizza purchase is Kal Jhaj of Kelowna. He comes up to Midway often to attend to his business and gets the veggie and meat lover pizzas for his crew at Stewart Nurseries in Midway.

“He was elated to learn he had been the one that ordered the 12,500th pizza on Wednesday, Nov. 26 around 5:30,” said Bistro co-owner RJ Lesher. “He actually ordered four for the crew. He won his pizza for free and another pizza a week for the next month.

“We were thrilled to say the least to have reached this milestone in two years of business,” RJ added. “That equates to 100,000 slices of pizza sold. We could not have done this without the customer base we have, we sincerely appreciate and are humbled by their on going support and love of our pizza and the rest of the menu items.”

RJ says they have also teamed up with the Motherlode in Greenwood where they will be featuring Bored Room Bistro pizzas by the slice, and their homemade pies and breads. “Together we all make the community we live in, together we are all a success,” she said.
