    Great Plains

    I'm trying to see if anyone on the website knows the manager or owner personally. We went there tonight after the game and everything was great for the most part. Just wanted to comment on something to him.

    My wife and the owners wife are friends. They are a really nice family and deserve all the success they have achieved.

    I've thought this as well, ever since I moved here after school.

    Combine it with a moderate size bar, ISU theme. Place would do great IMO.

    Particularly out west. Be a great place for game watches and such events. Johnny's downtown, Great Plains out west.

    I had a buddy that worked there and he always talked about buying the rights to start his own franchise. I think he said it cost $10K. If I had the money, I'd be all over it, unfortunately, that's not the case.

    You don't have to be looking for pizza to follow that advice...
