Marco's Pizza area franchise owner Kirk Luchman, a former basketball player with the Jacksonville Baracudas, said Wednesday he wants to open 34 stores over the next five-10 years in North Florida and into South Georgia.

Kirk Luchman? Had no idea he was local. I remember him at FSU.

Wow - 34 stores seems ambitious.  Those seem like Papa John's / Domino's / Pizza Hut levels......

Wow! I mean WOW!!! I hope we can get one of the eateries here in Avondale, which is now practically a pizza desert what with no outlet closer than a whole mile away. Maybe they could engineer a closing of Ingleside and go toe-to-toe with Mellow Mushroom - sort of like "Dueling Banjos" in "Deliverance."

Too many cookie cutter chains serving prepackaged pizza.

A large pie in any of them would be a small or medium compared to the ones I grew up with in New Haven and at the shore in Jersey. Maybe I don't get out enough but I'd take a Di Giorno over many of them here.

WmNussbaum must have it pretty good when the worst he has to complain about involves pizza.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Well you know what they say Ralph, I-95, Amtrak and Delta all go north!   ;)

Oh my God Ralph, somebody call 911, I believe your delusional!  ;D

Actually Josephs on North Main used to be a great place but I haven't been back up that way in years, and D'Fontana's Pizzeria & Ristorante in (believe it or not) Green Cove Springs, owned by an unlikely Malaysian family that learned their skills after immigration to NYC, serve up some of the best pizza i've had this side of Northern Italy.

Almost, Chris, I thinks that's a tad too highbrow, though.

I think they'll limit entrance to Avondale with a simple garment to say whether or not you belong:

For heaven's sake, we don't need anymore pizza places or sub shops in this town. Surely they are going to start cannibalizing each other soon.  Only Pele's has anything that is different in concept.
When all else fails hug the dog.
