'I got cash flow coming out of my *rse boet, I swear to God I'm nice when I wanna be nice, if you f*** with me I'm gonna put your family on the f*** street.'

Roman's Pizza CEO John Nicolakakis has allegedly been caught on an audio clip threatening war with rival pizzeria owners, as he believes they have stolen his business plan, Times Select reported. He alleges that one of his rivals used his business plan to open a new store in King William's Town.

He reportedly threatened to "burn them down" and "go to war with them".

"I don't care, boet, you want war, we go to war," he can be heard saying.

The rivals who are now at "war" with Roman's are 2 Brothers Pizza in King William's Town, owned by Reno Ioannou, Rebels Pizza owned by Anthony Velissaridis and Take 2 Pizza company, owned by Dennis Alagiozoglou.

"I got cash flow coming out of my *rse boet, I swear to God I'm nice when I wanna be nice, if you f*** with me I'm gonna put your family on the f*** street," he is heard saying.

Our Roman's Pizza has become Take 2, and the only difference really is the name and packaging branding. Otherwise all else is the same (buy 1 get 1 free) - same type of box, same menu & same staff lol.

Ours became 2 Brothers and ditto. Romans opened up down the road shortly after. At one point I was using both. 2 Brothers for me in future.

Doesn't seem to matter...your money is going to a Greek guy either way :p

What's going on with that? Mediocre pizza places all run by Greek okes.

At the moment Pizza Hut is my favourite of the Pizza Franchise joints, even though Romans started in Alberton.
But I still prefer proper Wood Fired pizza.
