Fox's Pizza named top business

April 22, 2004

Valdosta - It's a madhouse inside Fox's Pizza at Fun Street, and that's just how owner Sheldon Presser likes it. "The kids are what drives in the business," said Presser.

He opened the place four years ago, and business has been booming ever since. "The community's been very supportive, sometimes we even have to turn away business on Saturday and Sunday," said Presser.

With 14 employees, Fox's Pizza is a one stop shop for family dining and entertainment. "Our business is providing a nice place for families to get together and socialize," said Presser.

It's a favorite for kids, and for a Chamber of Commerce selection committee. This morning, they named Fox's Pizza Valdosta's Small Business of the Year. "I think it was Dale Carnegie who said if you help enough people get what they want, you'll get what you want and then some," said Presser.

"Its good for the kids, and a place where families can go together and a very unique business," said Phyllis Royal, Judge.

A uniqueness that puts this business one step above the rest.
