Why you’ll love it
People tend to be creatures of habit when it comes to pizza ordering. Pepperoni. Supreme. Hawaiian. Repeat. Ed Elliott encourages you to branch out.
“There are a lot of pizzas people haven’t tried, but I know they would like,” said Elliott, marketing director for Liberty Lake Papa Murphy’s and five other franchises in the Inland Northwest. “The Thai Chicken is one of my favorites – sweet and hot. It’s a great pizza.”
Elliott should know. He has made every type of Papa Murphy’s pizza from scratch ingredients, cooked every pizza, marketed every pizza and sampled every pizza in nearly 20 years with Papa Murphy’s. You could say he is part of the local Papa Murphy’s family – literally and figuratively. The Papa Murphy’s Liberty Lake franchise is operated by a local family-owned business that started in Hayden in 1992. Bill and G’Nell DeLack launched the franchise; Elliott is their son-in-law. But every Papa Murphy’s employee is truly “part of the family,” Elliott said, explaining that the manager and employees of each store create a family environment and truly work together.
“If we take care of the product, the guests and our people, we are going to do well,” he said. “We can’t go wrong.”
