Cengiz and his wife, Guldane, moved to Brattleboro, VT from Turkey in November of 2001. With them, they brought their young son and a hope for a new life.
Cengiz has been making pizza since he arrived in the US and has truly found his passion. He loves getting to know - and filling up! - his customers. In September of 2015, Cengiz and Guldane were finally able to open up their own shop. Guldane is excited, because this is her first job.
Their family, which now happily includes a lovely daughter, tries to visit Turkey each year. But they have truly found a home here, enjoying the friendly and respectful people of the Brattleboro community. They love the snowy winters, which remind them of Turkey, and take full advantage of sledding, skating, and skiing.
