Q & A with James and Amy Ross , Owners
Q: Why you decided to open in Downtown Longmont.
A: Well, our location was Abbondanza Pizza for 12 years and we knew it's owner, Bob Goff, from James working at Left Hand Brewing. When we heard they were selling, we jumped on it. We always loved the location. I mean, a pizzeria in a "downtown neighborhood"?! That's what we dreamed of! I think nearly every inspirational pizzeria pic on our walls fit that description. Six years ago, so many new plans were just being made for downtown. There was definitely a buzz of another wave coming. It's certainly here and it's just going to keep growing!
Q: How can your customers make Rosalee's Pizzeria their own favorite place, and how can they take ownership of supporting you during this time?
A: The best way to support Rosalee's now, especially, is to keep ordering those Hot Pies! There is really an opportunity for more pickups between 1:30 and 3:30pm. Like most of us, we weren't set up to do just takeout, so if all of our pickups are scheduled between 4 and 6pm, we can only take a certain amount of orders. Then, people miss out on an opportunity to get a pie and we, naturally, lose out on sales. Between 1:30 & 3:30 is also the best time to call and place an order. So, if you're going to reheat your pizza anyway, it's a win win!
During the Stay at Home order, we'll be featuring a different Downtown Longmont business each day. These small businesses are the heartbeat of our community and are a big reason why this is such a great place to live, work, and play. This is a difficult time for everyone, and small businesses and their owners and employees are no exception.
There are many ways you can support our local small businesses during this time, from liking, following, and sharing their content on social media, to making online or over-the-phone purchases of products or gift cards. You can also donate to the Strongmont Fund, created to support local Longmont businesses negatively affected by COVID-19.
