The bosses of a family-run pizza takeaway are selling their Norwich shop to focus on running their outlet in Watton.
Chloe Ella and Adam Zargarian-sarabi opened Pizza XS in 2013 in Vulcan Place, Watton and then about five years ago expanded with a second outlet in Colman Road, Norwich. They're now selling the Norwich shop to focus on running Watton - and have also decided to come off the Just Eat website.
Instead, they've created their own app which customers can use to order as well on as their own website and are determined to plough back the savings into the business as well as offering customers more discounts.
London-based Just Eat works as an intermediary between independent restaurants and take-aways and customers. Businesses pay to feature on their site and Just Eat brings them online trade.
The Norwich Pizza XS business is for sale for between £70,000-£80,000 although the price is negotiable.
"Just Eat take 20% of our takings so we decided to come off it and the money we save will go back into the business and means we can offer discounts such as 10% off app orders," said Miss Ella.
"We are going to move to Watton and really give back to the community."
The firm is run by members of Mr Zargarian-sarabi's family and all the pizzas are made fresh every day but they also sell burgers, milkshakes and chicken dishes among other choices on the menu.
