Pizza Czar Zusi Takes the Job Seriously

When we recruited Pro Soccer star Graham Zusi as Minsky’s first ever Pizza Czar we knew he’d take the job seriously – but we didn’t realize how seriously. See Graham spending an evening at Minsky’s Pizza at Zona Rosa in our new TV commercial. The Czar hangs with our contest winner, Patrick, and his friends – and even brings them a few pizzas.

As the night continued and the pizza delivery orders started to pile up, Czar Zusi offered to jump in the “Czar Car” and take the pizza to the people: Hot, Delicious and Fast (the gourmet pizza we mean!) was Czar Zusi’s mantra. On the way out the door one of our kitchen guys needed a favor. The Czar does not disappoint. The Minsky’s back of the house prepster got his shift covered and a needed night off.

Zusi told us he has some soccer business to attend to but said he’d check back in from time to time to lend a hand. Until then, said the Czar: “#LetsEat!”
