Pizza Man owner says economy, competition forced firm out of business
When Pizza Man opened here in Hastings in 1996, it promised great pizza at a good price.
For 14 years, it did just that.
But as competitors moved into Hastings and as the economy soured, Pizza Man's profits plunged. It either had to offer that great pizza at a great price, or close its doors.
In mid-March, business owner Bill Cress, Hastings, chose to do the latter. His business closed down after sending its final pizzas out March 14.
