Carissa says Parkites rallied to the Este Pizza during COVID, making a lasting impression on her and Josh. ”We were amazed and grateful for how people supported us,” she recalls. “It made us love our local customers even more! They are the backbone of our business.”

They give back by working with other businesses to revitalize Barrett Lane in Prospector as a spot where locals can enjoy family time, good food and local music. In addition, as a local school alum, Carissa enjoys donating and providing lunch to the PC Education Foundation’s Bright Future program.

After eight years of operation, “we appreciate being part of this special place,” Carissa says. “And we will always be passionate about preserving our beautiful town and state.” As well passionate about those perfectly cooked garlic knots, lasagna pizza and ricotta!
