Lisa’s Pizza in Toms River Goes Back to Take Out and Delivery After Murphy Squashes Grand Indoor Dining Reopening

TOMS RIVER, NJ – Lisa’s Pizza and Restaurant in Toms River was excited for a grand reopening this week, but because Governor Phil Murphy decided to punish thousands of small business owners because of the reckless actions of a few, things have changed. Surviving only on takeout, because they are in a strip mall with no outdoor dining, Lisa’s is going to have continue weathering the COVID-19 storm on takeout and delivery alone.

“After 3 plus months of offering delivery and takeout only, we heard some great news that starting Thursday July 2nd we can finally have patrons dine in at 25% max capacity,” Lisa’s said.  “We called our staff back over the weekend to get everything in order to abide by the rules and set for a big opening only to find out Monday afternoon that Governor Murphy  pulled back abruptly.”

They had to let their staff know of the change of plans and now, they are back to COVID-19 square one, but with an even bigger problem.  What to do with the extra supplies and food they bought in anticipation of a huge Fourth of July weekend coming up.

“We ordered more supplies and food because who knows what to except opening back up after all this time,” Lisa’s said.  “It’s a major blow to our wonderful staff eager to get back to work.  Unfortunately being in a strip center, offering outdoor dining wasn’t feasible for us, so for now it’s still only take out and delivery 7 days a week.”
