Share Some Good News – March 29 – Mickey’s N.Y. Pizza
HUDSON – Elissar Naser, owner of Mickey’s N.Y. Pizza, 94 Lowell Road, Hudson, wanted to offer something back to the community, who has faithfully supported the family business, particularly during the current health crisis.
They posted a message on their sign on busy Lowell Road, offering free slices of pizza for those who couldn’t afford them. And people responded in many different ways.
“Honestly, we know that some people don’t have jobs,” she said. “Some kids rely on school lunches and with no school, they might not have money for to get something to eat. Because of that, we thought, ‘Why not help the community, as they have been helping us out?'”
Naser said that business has been particularly good, as many patrons are supporting the restaurant by ordering food – giving their thanks, for the restaurant itself giving back to people in the community.
“We just want to help out as much as we can,” she said. “It’s been really busy, thank God – especially with everything happening in this world. Some people are ordering food, just because we have the sign up.”
Naser said what they’re offering customers is not limited to pizza slices.
“If someone comes in and doesn’t have enough money, we’ll take care of them,” she said.
Naser and her husband, Tony, have enjoyed the success of many restaurants – including one in Boston and one in Quincy, Massachusetts – but right now, they’re just happy to help out those in need – even if it’s just a slice at a time.
They’ve owned and operated Mickey’s N.Y. Pizza in Hudson since 1983, and it’s a family affair, offering fast and courteous service that keeps the locals coming back for their famous pies. The restaurant plans on continuing to stay open, though Naser said she’s not sure, with the latest announcement from Gov. Chris Sununu asking people to stay home, only allowing for a handful of businesses to stay open. Fortunately, for the immediate future, that includes restaurant take-out and delivery.
“If they don’t ask us to close, we’re staying open,” she said. “We want to be here. And we’re glad to do our part and help a little.”
