LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A local pizza joint in Lexington has had to make a lot of changes, but the folks at PieTana are seeing how their neighborhood is coming together.
"All of this started and we've had to slow down and change gears to turning into a to-go business," PieTana Owner Sean Nealey said.
"We've had to change everything that we do," Nealey continued. "From closing our front door, which is the most bizarre thing to not have guests in the building, to serving out of our to-go window over here and doing curbside service and adding an online store so you can go online, order and pay, come pick it up, or have it delivered."
Nealey got PieTana started about two and a half years ago. The neighborhood spot on Rosemont Garden was settling into a steady stream of business before the coronavirus arrived. One thing that makes PieTana unique is that it uses all local products, which has become even more beneficial during this time.
"It has been amazing seeing how the community is really coming together," Nealey said. " We've had people come in and buy hundreds of dollars and gift cards to donate to the Lexington Fire Deparment over here on Southland Drive. We just delivered food for the entire emergency room at Central Baptist that was donated by a nurse out of Louisville."
Nealey hopes the support of businesses and others stays strong.
