Firehouse News

Good Morning Everyone,

All I can say is WOW, our community really stepped up last night and hit one out of the park. I would like to thank everyone for their patients last night. We had 88 customer orders placed in just over 3 hours, simply amazing! I would like to thank a few people who helped make this whole adventure possible.  First my entire staff for their dedication to getting all orders done as fast as we could and for never forgetting what this whole event was about. Second, to Rob Farah, Doug Dwyer and Jason Jennings for donating your time to assist us with delivering orders and prep work in our shop. Lastly but most important, you our customers and the community of Tottenham for coming out and supporting this family, you all deserve a round of applause. Now, due to all our efforts last night we raised $3500.00 for the Collins family fundraiser.  Thank you again; it makes me very proud to be a part of this amazing town.

Sincerely,

Jason Bowers

Whether it’s your hair, choice of music, friends, or clothes the thought of change is always there. It’s hard to accept, but change has come for Jason Bowers.

About four weeks ago Bowers decided to make one of the biggest changes in his life – after 20 years working as a sales and marketing executive, he traded in the boardroom for an apron. Bowers and his family are now the proud owners of Firehouse Pizza, a regular hotspot in downtown Tottenham. The thought of owning a restaurant was nothing new for Bowers, “I’ve always wanted to own a jazz bar, or restaurant. I have a lot of family in the industry, so advice is easy to come by”.

For a man who loves to cook, the decision to take over Firehouse Pizza was ultimately a “no-brainer”. The transition from the office life to a kitchen has been easier than he expected, but Jason is the first to admit he’s had help. The previous owners, Kevin and Lori Hollingshead made sure Jason was comfortable before they left him on his own, “Kevin and Lori have been awesome. They stayed for two weeks after the sale to help train, and get me accustomed to the business”. Jason prides himself in being a handson owner, and keeping the traditions that helped make Firehouse a household name in the Tottenham area. “We pride ourselves on customer service, and our ingredients. A local bakery makes our dough and we offer both white, and wholewheat dough. A lot of effort goes into our pizza’s, and I wouldn’t have it any other way,” he said.

Owning and operating a restaurant has created a different lifestyle for Bowers and his family. As a sales executive he was the ultimate family man, spending time with his daughters and wife whenever he had the opportunity to. The new business venture has caused a little bit of change for the Bowers, but it’s nothing they cannot adapt to.

Firehouse Pizza has become the talk of the town once again, and his daughters are enjoying the limelight, “My daughters are telling me how their friends are always talking about the restaurant, and how they had my pizza for dinner. They’re enjoying all the attention they’re receiving, and the free pizza as well”.

Bowers’ family members are not the only ones who have been extremely supportive with his takeover, the community has been just as supportive with the new management. “Our customers have been extremely friendly, and kind. I’ve gotten to know many of them over the phone, and in person. It’s really good to connect with your customers and community,” he said.

Bowers is a strong believer in community events, and there’s no easier way to spread awareness then through a restaurant, “I plan on using the Firehouse name to support organizations and events throughout the Tottenham area”. Help the Kids Play, and Girl Guides of Canada are two organizations, which he strongly supports.

It’s in Bowers’ nature to plan ahead and envision the bigger picture, but Bowers realizes this isn’t his usual project. The food industry is a whole new world for him, and he knows it’s going to take some getting used to – one pizza at time.
