Local Bank Surprises Bedford, N.H. Pizza Shop with Makeover, Seth Myers Pays a Visit

I just read an incredibly beautiful story in the Union Leader about the generosity of a local business that helped out a Bedford, N.H. pizza shop owner truly in need.

Eastern Bank chose Pizza Bella in Bedford, N.H., for its "Good Things Happen to Good People" project, based on Deedee Zgonis' community involvement, donating food, sponsoring local organizations and taking over the Pizza Bella business after the death of her husband, John, in 2012, at age 53.

The article states that Eastern Bank sent Zgonis on a Florida spa trip, so volunteers could work on a surprise free makeover of the 23-year-old restaurant just in time for Thanksgiving. John had owned the restaurant with a co-partner for 21 years.

What's more, comedian and "Late Night" host Seth Myers -- who used to work at Pizza Bella in his youth -- visited with his family to "say hello," and "pick up their favorite salami pie."

That Christmas Eve day, Myers had tweeted about the video, stating, "A tear jerkingly great video about my one time employer Pizza Bella."

You have to see the video below! It's a beautiful story and shows that caring businesses like Eastern Bank can make a difference in this world. Most importantly, it puts a well-liked and respected community-oriented individual, going through tough times, back on her feet again.

The video is moving and inspirational, but I also recommend giving Pizza Bella a try for some pizza, subs or  dinner combinations. At this writing, Pizza Bella has a five-star rating amongst dining reviewers on Google+.  It's a staple in the Bedford area and I'm sure they would be grateful for your business!

Pizza Bella is located at 178 New Hampshire 101 in Bedford NH. Tel.  (603) 472-8560
