On my first date with my boyfriend (3 years ago) I asked what was is his favorite pizza place (mine was obviously Carbone’s ever since I can remember) and he replied “it’s just a small place, you’ve probably never heard of it” and he said Carbone’s!! We have been together ever since!
I grew up on Carbone’s and we followed the tradition and ordered the Carbone’s Sunday Special almost every weekend while raising our two daughters from 1989 until 2011 when we moved to Florida. I fly back to Minnesota visiting my folks about four times a year and head right to Carbone’s and fly back to Florida with frozen Carbone’s Pizza because there is nothing even close to being as good here! We are forever fans!
On 09/19/19 my wife Felicia and I welcomed our first son Cooper into the world at Regina Hospital in Hastings. We had family visiting from all over to meet our little one and we decided the best way to keep our guests fed was to buy Carbone’s! (my fav) We ordered Carbone’s twice in 2 days from the Hastings Carbone’s and the food was amazing. Coincidentally, my twin brother Patrick and his wife Ashley also had their son Jack the same day at Woodwinds Hospital in Woodbury. Kare11 and Good Morning America heard about the stories shared it on their Facebook pages. a “Land of 10,000 Stories” news piece was also done on Kare11. Around the time the Kare11 story was being done my wife and I noticed the Hastings Carbone’s shared a post of our story onto their FB page (attached). We were so happy (and surprised) they remembered the story and my stepfather picking up pizzas for us!
We had our WB School Nutrition Christmas party at Carbone’s last year. It was North Campus’s turn to host it, and we figured everyone loves Carbones Pizza, so let’s have it there! The owner was very accommodating to our needs, and let us bring in homemade desserts, so we could stay within our budget. We had lots of laughs, good conversations, and great food! It was a huge success, and just today at a training session, other school lunch ladies were talking about how much fun they had at our work Christmas party, and how nice it was having it at Carbone’s! Thanks for making our party so memorable! Tami Wanless, WBL School Nutrition
Congrats to Sandy Schmitt on winning September’s $100 Gift Card giveaway. Be sure to enter the contest here: bit.ly/carbonessharing–Memory: “My son has always loved Carbone’s pizza. Several years ago he was in an accident. I was told his likes would probably change after his TBI but one of the first places he asked to go to was Carbone’s. We (his dad and I) have been taking him there as often as we can and he still orders the sausage, mushroom and extra cheese.”
