Just how many Pizza stores can one area support?
Dominos and Pizza Hut for a long while had a strangle hold on the pizza market for Gungahlin.
Sure, you had your fish and chippers doing some damn fine pizza on the side (I personally vouch for the efforts of Nichols and Ngunnawal takeaway, and can remember Elena’s once being good for a calzone), and De Nunzio did some side buisness in pizza as well, and Divots at Gold Creek, but for dedicated pizza action, these two jokers were it. That little corner of Gungahlin remains an impossible place to get a park on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night. Then throw in Eagle Boys, who opted to open up a little further away from the fray, and after them came Pizza Capers, slicing off a side of the video shop to offer an alternative to the pre-fab pizzas down in the heart of the action.
And now, as I head in to work this morning, I see that at the site of the old Hub Asian Supermarket, Crust have hung up a sign advising they’ll soon be opening.
Seriously, at what point in the pizza wars are we going to see some casualties?
