One of the owners, Charles Bangle, plead guilty to tax evasion in regards to his 2010 tax returns. The statement mention Charles setting up transactions to avoid having to report income from his Ocean City pizza place. Charles was sentenced to 15 months in prison.
Mary Bangle, Charles’ wife, was sentenced to probation for the term of 3 years and was handed a fine of $3,000 after she admittedly lied to the IRS.
By failing to report almost $263,000 in income from the pizzeria they avoided paying $91,000 in taxes. Charles also admitted to making deposits of less than $10,000 to avoid reporting requirements.
The Bonnie in this story, Mary Bangle, admitted to lying about keeping only enough money to make payroll to their employees. In actuality, she kept money for her personal expenses. She also lied about the amount of funds she deposited into her personal account.
The Couple must pay back almost $250,000 in restitution along with a $5,000 fine. Charles begins his sentence in Septemeber of this year.

You could be receiving your pizza delivery in a less conventional way soon. That is if you live in New Zealand near a Domino’s Pizza. Just recently, Domino’s showed off their ability to deliver a pizza via drone.
“It doesn’t add up to deliver a two kilogram package in a two-ton vehicle,” says a general manager for Domino’s Pizza. This chain of Domino’s Pizza is separate from those in the United States. The reasoning behind using the drone in that of Auckland would be the amount of traffic they have. In order to deliver a pizza quickly the sky was an obvious choice.

Yes you read right. Robots are taking over the world as expected. The long time loved career position of certified pizza maker is now in jeopardy like so many other job positions in this world. Is there no room left for the human artisan who takes pride in their work? “Of course there is” you say? “These robots aren’t created for the local pizza places that we love so much” you say? A silicon valley start up company known as Zume’s begs to differ. They are in the pizza business to become the “Amazon of food” says Alex Garden, the former president of Zynga Studios.
According to Bloomberg, Zume’s began to quietly recruit engineers and chef’s to bring their robot pizza maker robot into fruition without raising to many red flags. Concurrently, patented pizza trucks with ovens were being created to cook the pizza en route to the delivery destination. Although these trucks are still waiting to be approved by the Santa Clara County Department of Environmental Health this didn’t stop them from creating the pizza cooking prototypes.
We here at Pizza Near Me are all for the robot pizza maker revolution if it can bring us our pizza 15 seconds quicker. Even though we love the local pizzeria dearly, the idea of robots making our pizza is just to good to pass up. We are anxious to try the robot pizzas ourselves as we are curious to see if the robots will add the taste of love to the pizza the way our local pizza places do. We all know how great love taste. What do you think of the robot pizza revolution? Let us know below in the comments!
