Aarons pizza story starts on Erie street at Spagos. Aaron started in Spagos kitchen, learning to make Italian food from the Italian Nonnas working there. He moved his way up the kitchen ranks, eventually becoming a chef. After spending six years perfecting his culinary craft creating various dishes including gourmet Neapolitan style pizza, he knew he wanted to branch off on his own.
When an opportunity to open his own sandwich shop presented its self, he took it. He spent the next couple of years running the sandwich shop, but time came to close the doors. His sandwich shop business partner asked Aaron to join the Bullseye pizzeria team and offered him a south Windsor location. With his past experience making pizza at Spagos, Aaron accepted the new challenge.
While working into the wee hours of the morning renovating Bullseye South Windsor, Aaron decided on a dietary change, eating fast food late at night was not working. He turned to the vegan diet, the change in his personal lifestyle led him to introducing vegan options in his menu. He started by introducing the vegan pizza, however when he wanted to eat vegan gravy with his fries, he went out searching for it. Vegan options are not the easiest to find, after extensively searching, he started sourcing the right supplies.
He soon after began introducing more vegan options with the new vegan supplies he found. To promote the new vegan menu, Aaron started sharing on social media. This caught the eye of the vegan community in Windsor. His social media following blew up overnight and Windsor vegans started flocking to his pizzeria. With the extensive vegan menu he was able to cultivate, no longer did vegans have to order from a separate restaurant just to eat vegan food. Bullseye South Windsor offers options for both vegans and non vegans to eat together, this has made Bullseye South Windsor the top vegan restaurant in Windsor.
