I was kinda shocked when I started to find out that all these pizza places were run by people from Kosovo , says Susie Walsh
, a longtime business owner in Lake Worth.
The European accents , the stubble , the magnificent calzones.They had to be Italian.
...Susie Walsh , owner of Eastern Metal Supply in Lake Worth , had heard about their arrival and decided to snap them up before they got entrenched in the pizza business
.With their backgrounds , I knew they had great potential , she
says.So , we went to that Tony's pizza place to track them down..
Sahit is now being trained in accounting at Eastern Metal.Even their teenage children have helped in the office stuffing envelopes.You know , we have about 200 employees here - about a third white , a third black and a third Hispanic , Walsh
says.And when they [ the Zogajes ] tell of the atrocities they've gone through , a lot of us just sit there in awe , forget about our complaints and think about how good we've got it here..Walsh
is trying to get them financing for their own home so they don't have to depend on staying with family members.
The children speak perfect English and the parents are learning English from a computer program that speaks , Walsh
says.But the guy talking has a New York accent so that's probably what they're going to end up with..
Maybe they'll make it into the pizza business yet.
