Westshore Pizza Celebrates 25-Year Anniversary!
August 16, 2019 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsTampa, FL based Westshore Pizza is proud to celebrate its 25 years of serving great pizza and authentic Philly cheesesteaks to the Tampa Bay area. WSP original founder and current South Tampa franchisee Bob Vatasturo moved from Philadelphia to Tampa with his dream of opening an authentic Philly-style pizzeria, starting with the original location on South Westshore Boulevard and Bay Court Street.
"When I first came to Tampa, nobody knew how to make an authentic cheesesteak," said Vatasturo. "I believe we were instrumental in bringing the Taste of Philly to Tampa!" That Taste of Philly starts with quality ingredients and bigger portions as well as a unique pizza dough and cheesesteak roll. "Our cheesesteak rolls are brought in straight from Philly, and our great pizza starts with our great dough with its secret ingredient. People think it's the sauce or the cheese, but it all starts with a good foundation."
WSP also is well-known for serving enormous portions. "Our slices of pizza are so big that when people eat them, they need to use both hands," said Vatasturo. "Most people either rip them apart or fold them in half to make it easier. While most other chains are serving smaller portions, we will continue serving up big portions at a great price point!"
Now with over 25 locations throughout the Tampa Bay area and efforts under way to expand across Florida, WSP is celebrating its success with anniversary specials from August 20 to September 30 that feature large discounts on WSP's huge, quality pizzas and its authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwiches as well as other great food that includes burgers, salads, wings, and more. "We are very proud of the high quality and large portions that make Westshore Pizza a Tampa Bay favorite," said Travis Masters, CEO of Westshore Pizza Franchising.
Another big factor in that success is the community support WSP receives. "At WSP, we believe in getting involved and giving back, which is why we started our 1000pizzas.org program to help provide quality food to people with needs," said Masters.1000pizzas.org gives away at least 1000 pizzas every year to special events, families, and non-profit organizations in the Tampa Bay Area. "It's all about doing our part in the community by giving back to the community that gave us a chance 25 years ago," said Masters. "It's thrilling to see the smiling faces of the people when we deliver their pizzas. I know we're making a difference!"
