When a local business reaches a milestone, it’s cause for city-wide celebration as every single one of you is to thank for its success. And that’s exactly what the owner of Natalie’s Coal Fired Pizza wants to say to you.
Endearingly naming his pizza-making venue after his daughter and partner, Charlie Jackson has been doing Natalie’s Coal-fired Pizza and Live Music for five years. He handles the music side of the biz while his daughter runs the restaurant aspect.
It’s a well-oiled machined, too.
In those five years, the father-daughter duo has won over the hearts of music fans and pizza-lovers alike with live music six nights a week and New York-inspired pizza pies straight out of the wood stove. Here’s what Jackson had to say about his musically inclined pizza baby…
