Greetings, Plymouth!

As editor of Plymouth Magazine for more than three years now, I've had the true pleasure of getting to know many of you, your businesses, favorite playgrounds, delicious food and fine shopping destinations first-hand. And while the headline of this blog post might suggest otherwise, I'm not exactly going anywhere, so I won't have to give up these simple delights anytime soon.

Terry Savoie admits he “likes to gab,” but when it comes to talking about his new company, Red Rover Pizza, and the wood-fired creations he makes in his traveling oven, listening to him will just make you hungry. He’s got ideas to spare on different ways to top his pizzas (on handmade sauce and dough) and places where he knows he could find plenty of  hungry customers. Savoie’s enthusiasm for his new side business—he also owns a shed-construction company—is contagious.
