Sector Eats: Pizzeria Prima Strada

Katie and I went for lunch at Pizzeria Prima Strada at the Bridge Street location on March 28th, and here’s what we had to say:

Katie ordered the Diavola – calabrese salame, tomato, mozzarella, parmigiano, red onion for $14. She found her crust a tad overdone and was at a loss for how to eat it – it was too messy to eat by hand, yet too rubbery to cut with a knife.

She did find the sauce very tasty and the ingredients really fresh. Overall it was a decent tasting pizza, but she found the crust ruined her dining experience.

Katie: 3-1/2 out of 5

I ordered the Napoletana – tomato, garlic, anchovies, oregano, olive oil for $12.50. I loved the thin, crispy crust and ample amounts of fresh tomato sauce – molto autentica! I was very pleased that they offered several cheese-free options as well as mozzarella di bufala – for those of use who don’t do the moo.

Kelly: 4 out of 5

Sector says: “The food was delicious, but we’re not full.”

Maximum Express : Above and Beyond

Sector Learning Solution’s CEO, Gerry Brimacombe, wants to thank Al Hasham of Maximum Express Courier, Freight & Logistics for their outstanding customer service.

You see we were hoping to pay our subcontractors prior to Christmas and were awaiting a large cheque in order to do so. The cheque was promised by Dec 23rd, and this is what happened…

‘Twas the day before Christmas while deep in the office 
Gerry Brimacombe had a problem that made him feel nauseous.

He promiosed his sub-contractors’ payment for work
They had toiled hard and never did shirk.

We had  hoped that end-of-the-year cheques would be there
But without client’s payment, cash flow is rare.

With Gerry in Victoria and his client in Vancouver, 
They finally agreed on a tricky maneuver

A cheque on her desk, her office closed at noon,
a courier needed, not a moment too soon…

The cheque was cut and sitting on a desk in Burnaby, and their courier could only get it to Sector by Dec 28th. So with only an hour to spare, Gerry decided to ask Maximum Express for help. He dialed Al Hasham’s cellphone and reached him mid-commute into Vancouver.

Gerry explained the situation: “We have a cheque sitting in Burnaby, their office closes in an hour, and I want to pay my subcontractors. Can you help?”

Al responded, “No problem. Do you want us to deposit the cheque into your account?”

Gerry, dumbfounded, replied, “You can do that? YES!!!”

Within an hour Gerry received a call back telling him to check his bank balance: the money was there and Gerry started calling subcontractors saying:

“If visions of sugarplums dance in your head.
Then pop over to Sector where we’re not in the red”.

He was able to pay all the subcontractors, immediately, and with joy.

This superior treatment of their clients goes above-and-beyond the level of service that we’ve received from larger well-known corporate courier companies, (one of which recently delivered a “Guaranteed Delivery” a day late and refused to offer us a refund for their error).

So once again, THANK YOU Maximus Express for not only following through with exceptional service, but providing a creative solution!
