Another one bits the dust.

Not sure if it's all the new burger competition in town or the bigots protesting Chick Fil A were too busy doing that instead of supporting a local business.

Pizza was bland. Tried to support it, and while the service and staff were great the food wasn't.

I had plenty of time left after the CFA protests, but honestly their pizza wasn't that good, and their customer service was worse.

It went downhill after it turn from private ownership to corporate owned. I did love their hot hats though.

Drove by Chick-Fil-A on Saturday. Protests seemed to be working well (not). parking lot was jammed and both drive throughs had long lines.

perhaps a backfire on the boycott?

people are voting with their mouth. freedom of eat?

They were great until it was sold. The pizza was OK. I liked the atmosphere. Sad to see them close though, this center has been hit hard lately. Hope to see someone else give it a go soon.

I ate there last week they didn't have any signs or mention they were closing. How sad. Yes they were good until they were first sold and then the second owner started going down hill and the 3rd owner which is the current doesn't care.

Does that mean...
1st Owner put the extra time and effort into it and found he was not making any money.

2nd owner cut back on costs and made the balance sheet look good, but the long term propects were falling as customers found out.

3rd owner looked at the balance sheet, bought business. Felt the revenue slide and answered by cutting costs further.

Not to blame small business, a lot of big corporations have done the same stupid things.

Not the best quality. They need to put in a Pizza Hut or Dominos. Intel will order and the high school if it's cheap and fast. Also, a Subway would be good there.

With so many good pizza joints around Folsom, I would never patronize a Straw Hat or a Shakey's or a Domino's. But I'm still sad that Roma's left town.

I'd be in favor of a Pizza Hut as I have a liking for their pizza every so often. I think a little place like Little Caesars would work best for Pizza Hut.

I don't see how. Pizza Hut has a gillion commercials for new products all the time. Wings, multi-pack deals, etc. Little Caesars has like 3 choices.

Is there even a Domino's or Pizza Hut even close to Folsom?

There used to be a Domino's where Pizza Guys is now on East Bidwell across from Streets of London.
There's a Little Caesars with their $5 pizza next to Dollar Tree. I personally can't eat it. Cardboard crust and plastic cheese.

Maybe a Pizza Hut would do well with the high school students.
