Slim + Husky’s Celebrates 1 Year in Oak Park
One year after Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria opened its first west coast location in Oak Park, its owners are ready to celebrate with the community and look ahead at continued growth and positive impact in the neighborhood. Everyone is invited to stop by Slim and Husky’s for guaranteed great experiences including:
Friday Night, September 17th from 5-7pm: Tap Takeover by Oak Park Brewing
Saturday Evening, September 18th from 4-9pm: 1 Year Anniversary Specials with music curated by HOF and DJ Abs1er.
Sunday, September 19th from 3-5pm: Paint and Sip with Pastel Rae
The Slim & Husky’s co-founders Clint Gray, Derrick Moore and EJ Reed are marking the anniversary of their Oak Park presence with a commitment to community involvement, which started with a “Lunch & Learn” Virtual Session with seniors from Sacramento Charter High School. The event included a virtual lesson on entrepreneurship, where the restaurant’s founders shared their story and encouraged the students to get excited about the business world.
“Our story about three friends working together to create this successful restaurant business helps kids connect to the idea of entrepreneurship and think about their future possibilities,” said Clint Gray, co-founder of Slim & Husky’s. “You can come from humble beginnings like us, but with vision, strategy, and execution, great business goals can be achieved.”
Slim & Husky’s donated pizzas to Sac High for the students to enjoy after the virtual entrepreneurship session, and on Friday evening the restaurant is donating pizzas to the Sac High football team as the players prepare for a big game against Christian Brothers.
Clint Gray noted, “My partners and I are excited about our one-year anniversary in Sacramento. Opening a new restaurant in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic was tough, but the Oak Park community has continued to support us through it all. In the coming year we are committed to becoming more active within Oak Park through neighborhood outreach, education initiatives and social events. We hope to see all of our current customers and lots of new faces this weekend to help us celebrate. ”
