This summer season has been a successful one, and we are at a crossroads of sorts. The trailer is in need of some roof repair, as the windy climate has taken it’s toll. It is possible to fix the trailer, however, we are hoping to hear good news soon regarding an SBA 504 loan program for rural businesses.
Fall is a wonderful time in Alaska, especially in Cordova. I am fortunate enough to be able to put up fish and venison, harvesting straight from the source for my family and friends who appreciate and experimental batch of salmon sausage, or the latest jerky flavor. While we wait for more information from the banks and handle the logistics for either building or preparing for another long, cold winter in the pizza trailer, we are going to take the time to gather firewood, enjoy each others company, and focus on the details of achieving our goal of putting up a sit-down facility. Ideally, we would have been building by now, however, we are optimistic that our project will slowly but surely move forward.
We sincerely appreciate the support over the last seven years. It’s hard to believe we have been in the trailer for that long, but we’ve made it work, and we can keep making it if we have too…so for the next few weeks we will be closed for business, but working hard to continue the progress we have made over the last few years.
Keep checking on our progress and keep your eyes peeled for a Travel Channel Show called Only In: Alaska. Slated to air at the end of the year or early next year, we are excited about having a segment on that show highlighting our story and some of the unique challenges and opportunities we are lucky enough to have at Harborside Pizza. From our family to yours, thank you, and we look forward to serving you soon!
