Future Failing Business: Backstage Pizza


Hey, didn't that cute little building behind all the other shops in West Hartford Center used to be a coffee shop? And a juice bar? And another coffee shop? And an Indian restaurant? It seems like an ideal location - right near a bustling parking lot, with a courtyard that's been used for outdoor dining and even live music in the past. But every business that has opened here over the years has flopped in cut time. So good luck Backstage Pizza, trying to overcome that curse and having to compete with Harry's and Luna's (which actually suck but are inexplicably popular...).

  4. Harry's and Luna's suck??? Really?? You have inexplicably bade taste in pizza. If you don't like them, fine. But to say they suck & then not give reasons why or tell people what you consider to be good pizza.... I'm going to take a wild guess that your little blog will never become popular.

    As for Backstage Pizza - They have a great story for how they came to be. You might want to write about that if you care about writing something worthwhile. I wish them much success, just based on the passion they've put into starting their restaurant.
