New York, USA (Aug 15th 2017) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
How is pizza with a heritage connected to Balkan Plumbing’s superior sewer and water main services? Due to a recent course of events, through emergency sewer repairs. The situation started just outside the awning of Brooklyn’s outstanding Fornino’s pizza parlor. Just outside their restaurant, the NYC DOT had utilized heavy equipment to mill down the existing asphalt roadway. The goal was to prepare the street for new pavement, but the vibration from the equipment dealt a crippling blow to their old underground house sewer line. Frequently with old pipes, it doesn’t take much set to off a chain of vents. In this case, the DOT milling machine potentially ruined Fornino’s weekend, and maybe more.
Emergency sewer repairs keep Fornino open during a crisis
Committed to serving our clients no matter the location, or the time of day, Balkan received a panicked call requesting emergency sewer repairs. Even though the call came at the close of business on a Friday, the Balkan team was on site, excavating, and repairing the line within 24 hours. Throughout Saturday and Sunday, the Balkan workers diligently installed a new house sewer line. While the installation was taking place, Balkan took some inventive measures that allowed the eatery to remain operational at all times. During emergency sewer repairs, consideration for the client still has to be a top priority.
This undertaking was not an easy one. Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint Brooklyn is a busy thoroughfare. The Balkan installation crew had to work around traffic, pedestrians, road restoration crews, and pizza fans as well. This of course also meant ensuring a safe job site for all parties as well. Nevertheless, Balkan persisted and saved the day for this beloved Brooklyn eatery, which was back to business as usual on Monday morning.
A commitment to excellence is not limited by one’s profession
Balkan has a decades-long position as an industry leader in New York City’s plumbing industry. Couple that with a company-wide commitment to excellence, and that is what has made Balkan proud to serve other local companies, such as Fornino Pizza. Fornino opened its doors in 2004, and has quickly built a reputation for excellence, and a loyal following. Both Balkan and Fornino have a strong generational history and the same core values. The pizzeria’s founding chef named the company in his mother’s maidens name to pay homage, a mirror of Balkan’s generational dedication as we continue to work with members of the founding family.

About Fornino and their great Brooklyn pizza
A pizza is much more than just its ingredients. A great pizza blends historical traditions with scientific subtleties. That’s what Chef Michael Ayoub brought to Brooklyn when Fornino opened its doors in 2004. Dubbed the “First Chef of Brooklyn” by the New York Times, Ayoub draws from the Neapolitan style of pizza making while appreciating the formulaic approach to crafting pizza. The science behind Fornino’s dough allows for each of our pizzas to come out perfectly every single time, no matter the day, weather, or topping. The Fornino namesake was borrowed from Ayoub’s mother’s maiden name, a nod to his family’s history of baking through the generations.
