What's Nelly's Problem? :: We're gonna need a bigger space…

We wanted to write a cheesy line for this episode, but one *cannoli* dream.

You might think that the Middle Tennessee area would be the last place you’d find authentic New York Style Pizza. As it turns out, the gravy runs red and deep in the Buckle of the Bible Belt.

Of course, Jim’s a fan.


Nelly’s was started by Husband and Wife duo Ryan and Danielle Hall. They come from a long line of “award winning” pizzerias. Danielle grew up in her parent’s pizzeria, cooking from a young age. Also learning what it takes to have your own restaurant. Ryan and Danielle actually meet working together at the pizzeria. After owning and operating a branch of their family’s restaurant for nearly five years, they have been inspired to open their own Pizzeria.

What’s Nelly’s problem?

They *really* need more space. Everything else is pretty much dandy. For real.

A few things that came up:

*Brooklyn roots

*Joey’s House of Pizza and the family experience

*How Ryan and Danielle dated and married

*Joey loved Ryan when he wasn’t dating Danielle, then he wanted to kill him

*Opening in Spring Hill the first time

*The Waffle Boss

*Opening Nelly’s as their own brand
