Pizzeria Grandé customer has one-of-a-kind experience

by ANA OLVERA 

Every business owner wants their customer to have an unforgettable experience while at their business. But for one Pizzeria Grandé customer, their experience was definitely one-of-a-kind. On Monday, July 5 around 6:40 p.m., a Buick accidentally accelerated into the front of Pizzeria Grandé’s building on Belding Road while trying to move their car, damaging half of the building’s front exterior.

“When it happened, I just hoped no one had been hurt. The restaurant was full at the time, but luckily there were no injuries,” Pizzeria Grandé owner Jim Zanzig said. “Oddly enough, there were two Kent County Marine Officers in the restaurant at the time of the accident, so they were able to help out.”

After being in business for 10 years, this is the first time Zanzig has experienced anything like this. “It’s not often you see a car go through the front of a building,” Zanzig said.

Pizzeria Grandé is still open for business and running its usual hours at 6575 Belding Rd. However, there is a temporary door at the entrance while arrangements for fixing are made.
