    Anyone heard of this company?
    Well, it's my uncle's company that he's been in the process of starting for the past few years. Here's the link to the site: www.wonderpizzausa.com.

    Anyway, the reason I'm posting is because I'm pretty upset. I just found out from my dad that my uncle was on Good Morning America talking about his company last Tuesday and I had no idea! I mean, how often does your uncle end up on Good Morning America? And no one told me! haha Apparently they were talking about it on the local news the other night too. I wish I was made aware of this stuff a little earlier, but there's nothing I can do about it now, I guess. Ok...I feel a little better now....
    :)

    haha..I actually haven't even tried the pizza yet myself. My father tried it once at my uncle's house because he had a few of them in his freezer and said that they're pretty good. There aren't any of the vending machines around me yet, but apparently there's one at Brown University and soon there were be a whole bunch of them all around Michigan. I can't wait for them to be around here. I think they'll do REALLY well on college campuses...wish they had then while I was still in school!

    Yep! It's definitely different. Nothing like that around here either....yet! They're vending machines. They have 3 kinds of pizza you can choose from. Once you choose the pizza it comes out of the freezer and into a toaster oven. It cooks for 90 seconds and them comes out of the machine in a box. It's pretty neat. I can't wait to try one!

    LOL You guys crack me up!
    No, I'm not Italian, but my uncle did go to Italy to meet the guy who runs the company there (wonder pizza Italy) and that's when he ended up buying the franchise or whatever.

    Anyway, Rosie, glad the game was good. My dad went to a hockey game last night too, which I thought was kinda funny because he told me right after we had be talking about it on here. He went to see the Bruins up in Boston. He had a good time too. He's a big hockey fan!

    Sorry Beth we didn't mean to get side tracked on your thread but you know how things go here. I am curious to see how this takes off. I think it would be good at colleges...at least my son thinks so. Do you know what state or where they are going to start putting those machines?

    I'm "trying" to finish my pizzas I mean, my thesis! That's why I'm not playing...but I will connect the song right away Rosieo! As for the pizza, I go for ham and cheese or tropical pizza (with fruit)...but if you like anything else, I'm not picky, and there's no point in ordering tow pizzas for 4 girls. I'm assuming Beth wants pizza too, and Kinder will be here soon.

    No biggie about getting side-tracked....I get side tracked VERY easily so I understand! :)
    I know my uncle is making another trip to Detroit next week or something and I think that's where they're starting to put them so they'll be all over Michigan. Supposedly they're getting like 60 machines a month delivered so they should be all over soon.

    Beth keep me updated when they come to Michigan. My son wants to try it. Hopefully they will be someplace where he could. Then I'll let you know what he thinks.

    Carmen - finish that thesis. I am glad you are doing it and not me. I never had to do one...not even for my masters:)

    Oh, I'll definitely keep you guys updated. I can't wait until they're around here so I can try them too. I think it's such a cool idea and the fact that he's going all over the country with them is awesome.

    It's a franchise. He bought it from a guy in Italy who runs the company there and now my uncle owns the rights to it here in the U.S.
