Pizza is fast becoming a favorite menu item all over the world, even in Siberia. This story in Reuters tells of Minnesota native, Eric Shogren who has built a chain of 30 pizzerias across Russia - and according to Eric, he's "out here selling Russians pizza left and right".
Shogren, who started his pizza business in 1996 serves up pizza, fries and salted cookies to his Russian patrons. He now has plans for starting his own 3200-head dairy to supply enough cheese to keep his operations going.
"We should have known that people here are the same as they are anywhere else. They just want good, normal stuff," Shogren said.
