NBC12 Hall of Fame Award: Franky's Pizza

By Ashley Swann 

CHESTERFIELD, VA (NBC12) - It's time to present the NBC12 Hall of Fame Award. This week, we head to Chesterfield, where employees at Franky's Pizza are not only dishing up delicious Italian but, some impressive health inspections as well.

For hand-tossed pizzas and fresh italian fare, customers say Franky's Pizza on Irongate Plaza in Chesterfield is the place to go.

Gerald McKnight says, "I'm greeted with a big smile and the food is always on time."

Also impressive is the Restaurant's health inspection record. Owner Enrique Garrido says cleanliness comes first. Garrido says, "We do the best we can."

That requires a lot of hard word and vigilant rule following, something Chef Raphael Miquz says his staff doesn't seem to mind. Miquz says, "The people who don't want to work ... stay home."

Now in business five years, customers like Gerard McKnight say the food, prices and service keep them coming back again and again.

Gerard Mcknight says, "The food is great."

To be recognized with the NBC12 Hall of Fame award, restaurants must have received a perfect heath department inspection. That means zero critical and non-critical violations.
