LAS VEGAS, February 7, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Las Vegas-based Above The Crust has announced franchising plans, with the goal to expand nationwide. With their unique combination of community focus and the most authentic New York Italian food outside of New York, Above The Crust offers franchisees to be part of the family.
For Above The Crust, the crust is always the canvas and the community is forever family. From New York to Las Vegas, and now expanding nationwide, the Above The Crust brand brings traditional pizza, wings and things from native East Coast owners Phyllis and Adam Barkin.
“The only thing we put more love into than our dishes is our community,” said Adam Barkin, President of Above The Crust. In the last four years, the pizza chain has raised over $75,000 for their local Las Vegas community through “Dine out for Dough”, a community fundraising program that supports a multitude of organizations such as schools, charities, school clubs and athletics and even local families facing challenging times. These fundraising nights give 20% of proceeds to the featured organization and, on special occasions, 100% of proceeds are given. Recent recipients include Mamba Sports Foundation, Paul Culley Elementary School Musical Theater and Veterans Village Las Vegas. 
Built on the simple mission of “Welcome to the Family,” whether dining in or taking out, Above the Crust is committed to bringing its guests home to Brooklyn. With generations-old family recipes from Phyllis, guests feel like they are walking straight into grandma’s kitchen. From mozzarella-smothered Italian nachos to baked rigatoni to genuine Philly cheesesteak pizzas, your taste buds will be sure to transport straight to the East Coast. Pizza wouldn’t be served if the dough wasn’t kneaded fresh daily or the marinara wasn’t prepared traditionally with whole tomatoes. With ranch made from scratch and all-natural, Italian Grande Cheese sprinkled upon piping hot dishes, it’s hard to get more East Coast than this.
It isn’t just that every customer is treated like family, to Above The Crust they truly are family. The team from Above The Crust is thrilled to offer franchise opportunities. It’s a chance to take real New York Italian food, and the family-oriented food culture to your hometown.

Historic Flying Car Ready To Soar Above The Rest At Barrett-Jackson Auction

Take a Drive in the Clouds

“The Taylor Aerocar is the only FAA-certificated, roadable flying car. It’s an all-original historic artifact to appreciate and enjoy,” said Greg Herrick, Aerocar owner.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) January 07, 2020
It’s the stuff of fantasy: a real flying car. Except, it’s not. Since the 1950s, five FAA-certificated Taylor Aerocars have taken to the sky and roads. Now, for the first time in nearly two decades, the star of the fleet which is still both air and roadworthy the 1954 Taylor Aerocar N-101D, is coming up for auction at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale.
“This is the one you read about as a kid in Popular Mechanics magazine,” said Greg Herrick, vintage airplane collector and current owner of the Taylor Aerocar. “Whether you are an aficionado of transportation milestones, engineering genius or simply appreciate owning extraordinary rare examples of automotive – and aviation – progress, this Taylor Aerocar is an all-original historic artifact to appreciate and enjoy.”
Take a Drive in the CloudsThe Aerocar features side-by-side seating for two. Advanced for its time, most of the fuselage skin is made of composite material and the car is front wheel drive. It is powered by a Lycoming O-320 engine with the propeller mounted at the end of a long tail cone. In flight, the wings are high and unobtrusive. Its cruise speed is about 100 mph. Takeoff speed is 55 mph and the airplane is controlled by the same steering wheel as is used for driving.
When used as an automobile, the Aerocar’s wings fold back and can be towed behind the car. In about 10 minutes, the wings can be folded back into place and the car again becomes an airplane. With 15,254 miles and 781 flight hours, this Taylor Aerocar is an incredible artifact of transportation history.
When Anything Seemed PossibleThe Taylor Aerocar is a testament American ingenuity during the post-war era when anything seemed possible, even flying cars. It was developed by aeronautical engineer Moulton (Molt) Taylor, an inventor at heart. Among his many endeavors, he explored plans for an Army flying jeep, the “Fleep,” and for a 17-passenger “Aerobus.”
