I must say it’s rather fun to have mine and Jimmie the Beef Guys jobs, we get to meet all the legends involved with Italian beef, from the bread, beef to the giardiniera and even with other vendors involved, like Peter from Grecian Delights. As well, we get to enjoy and eat at all the best Italian beef stands, not a bad side job to have.
I recently had a chance to meet with Dave Gonnella (from you know where obviously, but if not Gonnella Bread). I met with Dave and discussed ItalianBeef.com and he gave me a tour of one of their bakeries or rather plants. What an operation, I am excited to go tour the main facility the next time we meet, from what I hear its pretty impressive. Dave was kind enough to take a picture with me after the tour.Now Jimmie the Beef Guy, his experience with Dave Gonnella was a little different than mine. See this picture of who Jimmie’s with in addition to Dave Gonnella.
Yep, that’s right, Dave Howey, the owner of Al’s #1 Italian Beef Franchises and Nancy’s Pizza. Dave Howey enjoyed Jimmie’s the Beef Guy and ours first video of Al’s #1 Italian Beef on Adam’s, that he invited Jimmie to the Bulls game with him and Dave Gonnella. Of course, they all had a great time, having a few cocktails talking about Italian Beef, ItalianBeef.com and just enjoying the Bulls game. Look for more video’s coming soon.
