Sirius Wood Fired Pizza at Graham Auto Repair!

Sirius Wood Fired Pizza at Graham Auto Repair!

Have you tried the pizza from Sirius Wood Fired Pizza?? If not, you are missing out! Today our team was spoiled with delicious pizza from a local Food Truck, Sirius Wood Fired Pizza! How did this happen? Earlier this week, the Food Truck Owner came by our shop with an emergency situation! His truck, the key to keeping his business mobile, had a Ball Joint concern. We got his truck into our shop that same day and our Technician did his best to help press the ball joint back into the knuckle as quickly as possible. While we weren't able to complete the job 100% it was just enough to get Chuck and his Food Truck back on the road, selling pizza!   Check out the photo above to see a picture of Chuck in his Food Truck, holding one of the delicious pizzas that he served us today! Do you see what's behind him?? A wood stove! When they say th ... read more
