The 'Boyz' are back in town and serving breakfast
The 'Boyz' in Pine Island will soon be getting up early to start cooking breakfast.
Borgy Boyz Pizzeria & Cafe is gearing up to step into the downtown Pine Island location as well as the breakfast and pizza niches left empty by the closing of Dominic's Pizzeria & More this summer.
Owner Dan Borgschatz hopes to soon open the doors of the refreshed Pine Island eatery at 200 S. Main St., possibly as early as Saturday.
"Borgy" is a longtime nickname playing off his last name. The "Boyz" part of the business name comes from Dan Borgschatz teaming up with his son, Jeremy Borgschatz, to cook up this new project.
"I've always wanted to work for myself," says the elder Borgschatz. "This opportunity popped up, and I talked it over with my son. He said, 'Dad, we need to do this.'"
The younger Borgschatz is not a stranger to the restaurant business. He left his position as kitchen manager/cook at the Green Mill Restaurant in Rochester to help his dad run this new place.
Dan Borgchatz says the closing of Dominic's left a big hole in his town of Pine Island.
"There has been no place in Pine Island to get breakfast, since it closed. He had a very good breakfast crowd. So we'll open at 6 a.m. every day and serve breakfast," he says.
Borgy Boyz will also offer a lunch menu that will include hamburgers, broasted chicken and pizza by the slice, which they hope will bring in hungry students from nearby Pine Island High School.
Being a pizzeria, the new Pine Island eatery will, of course, have a menu pf pizza options for customers to eat in, take out or have delivered.
They recently put the finishing touches on their signature, eight-topping pizza, the Borglicious.
The restaurant seats 36 to 40. Borgschatz hopes to build the staff up to nine or 10.
