    That's as bad as the WWE renaming The Great American Bash to The Bash.

    They're doing this so they can sell more than just pizza. Not what they sell should even be called pizza.

    No one, but no one can justify any national chain pizza delivery joint over the other. Pizza Hut vs. Pap John's vs. Dominos vs. Little Cesar's vs. Hungry Howies vs. Whatever ones I'm forgetting is no different than trying to argue which is better between: crap vs. doodoo vs. dookie vs. turd vs. poop vs. ****.

    Get your pizza from Mom & Pop shops!

    Little Caesar's is good stuff.

    Couldn't agree more. Big chain pizza SUCKS.

    Local mom & pop pizza places actually CARE about the product they serve.

    A very poor marketing decision which they'll live to regret.

    Look for "The Hut" in the next round of bailouts a couple years from now.

    Big chain pizza = cheese on cardboard.

    And no offense to anyone, but I've yet to get good pizza anywhere outside of NY.

    California pizza should be ashamed to call itself pizza, and the pizza I've had in Florida is atrocious. Texas was even worse. Even Connecticut, so close to NY, has crappy pizza.

    I like take out pizza. There is one great pizza place down here in South Florida near the Broward courthouse. It can't remember the name, but it was really good. The guy doesnt deliver, it's a small shop and he makes it amazing.

    You gotta come to South Florida for Pizza. Half the population is from New York, so it's good stuff.

    It also makes me think "As in Jabba? Are they becoming a Star Wars themed pizza place?"

    That much I've heard. Gotta try that. Is it true that there's one pizza maker down there who actually imports his water from NY because he says that's what gives it the flavor?

    From what Ive heard, thats a gimmick some shops use to promote their pizza. I think its more Urban Legend than anything tbh.

    Going away from a well and long-established brand when there's no real, pressing need is folly.

    And think of the money they're going to have to invest to change all their branding; signs, menus, boxes...everything. I wouldn't be surprised if when it's all said and done, that re-branding costs close to a billion.

    That's the kind of thing that bankrupts successful companies.

    Depends which Rays (the one across from Carnagie Deli....blows)

    P.S. NY/NJ pizza is the best no doubt....especially the thin crust of Federici's!!!!! (http://www.federicis.com/about.html)

    Its not even a cool name. And you know what is really funny about that?

    All the money they spend rebranding, they could have spent creating a better product. That would have been MUCH better for them than a dumb name change.

    But if you opt for pizza when there's a beautiful, one-pound corned beef masterpiece on rye waiting a few feet away, you deserve what you get. :wink2:
