Little Box Pizza Truck Employs People Looking To Turn Their Lives Around
Little Box Pizza is a pizza truck that gives employment opportunities to people who are looking to turn their lives around.
Little Box Pizza is a unique concept. A "pizza on wheels," Little Box Pizza operates as a pizza kitchen from which orders are taken and pizza is either picked up or delivered by a driver. Customers can order their personal or large size pies truck-side at the kiosk, online, or satisfy their pizza fix by ordering from Little Box Pizza's mobile app, but that is not all that makes this pizza truck special.
Little Box Pizza was founded with a mission to make lives better. Brad Nagy and Angela Viscoso both have a passion for pizza and helping people. So, they've combined both by having the pizza trucks operated by deserving and hard-working individuals who need and want the chance to turn their lives around.
Little Box Pizza's first owner and operator, James Gibson, lives in Stamford, Connecticut. James grew up on the streets of Norwalk and Bridgeport, Connecticut, his life involved gangs and crimes that led him to struggle, pain, and even jail time. Once he cleaned up his act, James became determined to make changes to better his life. He worked two jobs to support his family and still had trouble making ends meet. So, he decided to open a small business. Now, James owns Little Box Pizza and is inspiring and helping others on his path of success.
