Bistro hits milestone of 10,000 pizzas

People must like pizza - the Bored Room Bistro in Midway has sold 10,000 of them in the 19 months they have been open.

The Bored Room Bistro in Midway passed another milestone on Wednesday, July 9. That is the date they put out their 10,000th pizza since firing up the oven 19 months ago.

The delivery was made to Greenwood to Larry King and his fiancée Michelle, who are getting married on Aug. 2. “So the $100 in Bistro gift certificates will come in handy,” said RJ Lesher, who runs the Bistro along with her husband Tom. “Larry and Michelle were quite surprised to win and thankful for the gift certificates,” reported Tom.

“We want to thank everyone in the Boundary for all their support. We truly could not be where we are in business without the community behind us, we are very proud to be a part of this Boundary community,” RJ said.

“Pizzas have gone over very well, burgers are flying off the grill and Sunday brunch is more popular than ever. All because the community said this is what they wanted in a Bistro and we were happy to deliver and cater to their needs.

“Thank you everyone for all of your support. We could not have reached this milestone without you, we are so very proud to be part of this community and look forward to many more milestones together.”
