LOS ANGELES -- Downtown LA's Pizza Sociale just opened its doors in October of last year, and March was shaping up to be their best month yet before the coronavirus forced lockdowns. Despite her business struggling, owner Carmela Fuccio remains optimistic and stresses the importance of supporting local at a time like this.
"There's something to be said about having a local community," said Fuccio. "And I think if people want that personalization and that intimate relationship, it starts with small businesses."
Fuccio has responded to the shutdown by offering her staff free meals and at times even delivering free pizzas to hospitals, police departments, and frontline staff during the height of the pandemic.
"At the end of the day, people like to go to local businesses. They like to have fresh food and fresh ingredients, and in order for us to do that we have to be able to financially support that," Fuccio told ABC7.
