Godfather’s manager says thank you

To the editor:

First & foremost, I want to express my gratitude to the community of Fort Dodge. It has been my privilege to serve & be a part of the business community here for the past 30 years. I will truly miss seeing all of our loyal customers at Godfather’s Pizza! The decision to close our store was not an easy one to make & since the announcement was made public both my team & myself have been overwhelmed with the many calls, texts, letters & gifts from so many of you, which is a true testament to the customer base & relationships that have been established due to love of pizza!

I cannot begin to thank you all for supporting Godfather’s, my staff & myself. Additionally, hearing from so many former employees over the last few weeks has been very uplifting. I want to thank all of my current & past employees for their hard work & dedication, because without them, we would not have been able to successfully operate for the last 44 years. It has been fun to reconnect with many of you and reflect on the memories made at the store.

Our biggest fans really sent us off with a bang, selling out all of our product 4 days early! While saying goodbye is never easy, I am excited for what the future holds for our town & for my family who have supported me along the way. I am grateful for the experiences I’ve been given and for the ability to create a product people really loved, thank you all!
