CHESTER CAB UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

7/24/13

Originally from Bulgaria, Dess came to the United States in 1999. He started work at Chester Cab Pizza after a couple of dish-washing jobs and learning basic English. After only a year, he became the store manager. He enrolled into MCC and, after graduating as Student of The Year in 2003, he enrolled into the University of Rochester. At that time he married Erin (and became stepfather to her two daughters) and had a baby daughter 9 months later. He transferred to RIT and graduated 1st of the class of 2006. He continued to graduate school at RIT, but did not like the prospective job market in the Public Policy field. All that while he was working full-time, mastering the craft of making the best pizza in the world.

During the last 14 years, Dess included Bulgarian hints to the taste of Chester Cab's pizza. He uses only the best ingredients, even though they are often the most expensive.

When the previous owner, Howie Nielsen, discussed the possibility of closing down, Dess did not hesitate to make an offer. The chance to realize his American Dream and be an entrepreneur seemed like a great idea.

This is also an opportunity to thank his customers and supporters for their loyal patronage through the years. Dess is at the shop every day except Sunday and wants to invite any customer service comments or complaints directly to him as these are a top priority to him. Because Dess was involved in the development of the recipes, the pizza will remain the same.


NEW "CURBSIDE DELIVERY"

Due to the impossible parking situation on Park Ave, we are offering Curbside Pick-up service. Customers have to let us know at the time of order, have exact change or pay with their credit/debit card over the phone. They have to show ID if paying with a card to the person bringing their order out. They have to have their flashers (all ways) on and park on Buckingham St. within 100 yards of store. Please be patient if trying this service as we are new at it also.


What makes Chester Cab Pizza so good?

Start with the crust. Our regular style pizza dough is made fresh in our store with a time-tested fermentation process that gives the crust a naturally good taste. Each order is hand-pressed and topped with our own sauce.

Our sauce is made with fresh packed California tomatoes. The best money can buy!

For cheese, we use Wisconsin whole milk mozzarella, which we cut in store. It retains that rich, buttery flavor that represents the cheese capital of the country.

We have an array of 25 fresh toppings to choose from. We're known for serving two types of pepperoni and a blend of two types of mushrooms when you order. Our fresh Italian sausage is made to our specifications by a local butcher.

And last of all, we bake our pizza on a stone deck hearth, which draws the moisture from the dough to give the crust a nice crisp tanning.

We are not the cheapest or the fastest, but we think our old fashioned style of making pizza is the best tasting. Chester Cab Pizza has been in business since 1982, and in our 31 years we have perfected the art of making good pizza.

5 Great Tasting Styles of Pizza

Something for Everyone!

Our Famous Chicago Stuffed Pizza

The pizza that started it all! This stuffed pizza is more like a pie. A layer of our specially made dough forms the bottom and sides. Follow that with the toppings (stuffings) of your choice, which is then topped off with a specially blended mozzarella cheese. A thin layer of dough goes on top and is hand-pinched to the upper sides, which is then drizzled with a crushed tomato sauce and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. We bake the stuffed pizza for over half an hour until it reaches a deep golden brown. We suggest you eat with a fork and knife! Note: for delivery purposes, we only start the cut. You will need a basic dinner knife to finish it.


Our "Just as Famous" Regular Style Pizza

Baked on the Hearth!

Our regular style pizzas are made with our fresh homemade dough. Each one is hand pressed and sauced with our own recipe sauce. We cut and blend two types of mozzarella cheese. You choose the fresh toppings -- or pick from one of our 12 specialty pizzas. From that point, we slide the pizza off its wooden peel, right onto a brick deck. This is the old fashioned, time tested method that makes for the best crust as the brick draws the moisture from the dough.


16 x 16 Square Pizza

Again, the same dough and baking process as our regular style pizza. We hand press into a 16" by 16" square so that you get more of that great taste for when you have more people to serve. Medium thickness, with a light and crispy crust.


New Expanded Menu!

Chester Cab Pizza, located at 707 Park Ave. has added new selections to its menu. Now customers can enjoy fresh garden salads or a daily fish fry in addition to all of Chester Cab's great pizza choices.
