The Willkommen Committee made a stop to Happy Joe’s Pizza, home of the award winning tator tot hotdish, to welcome the new owner Nick Fruhwirth. Nick has done a variety of things in his career but always comes back to Happy Joe’s where he credits the leadership of previous owner, Lee Sturm, for the successful transition and the great relationships with vendors, customers and employees. Nick knew the restaurant was up for sale and wanted to be a part of continuing the legacy in New Ulm. Nick stated that no huge changes are coming to the store and wants to be known as the “guy making the pizza”. Happy Joe’s is a popular place for birthday parties, taco pizza and employs an average of 50 employees. Congrats Nick and good luck!
