According to an Atlanta company that sends direct-mail to movers including those in metro Charleston, the business frequented first by people in a new neighborhood is the local pizzeria. The company who did the research was Welcomemat Services who tracked the buying habits of 300,000 households. From that research the company developed a top 10 list of places that homeowners visit first when relocating to a new neighborhood. They are, in order of most visited:
• Pizza restaurant • Car wash • Hair salon • Hardware • Family restaurant • Dentist • Car care • Grocery • Bakery • Dry cleaner
Picture it….You’ve just unpacked all your boxes from the moving truck and it’s getting dangerously close to dinner time. You could unpack your box labeled “Pots and Pans” and start to cook, but it would be soooo much easier to just pick up a pizza from the nearest pizza place. With this in mind, I have taken the time to compile a list of the best pizza places in some of Charleston’s best neighborhoods.
