The soft-opening of the Happily Ever After Pizza Emporium had kicked off at noon the day before, and today was the first full day of operation as a proper pizza parlour. A few weeks prior, Jimbo had scouted the location of the restaurant, immediately putting in a bid and winning (probably because he made an offer above asking price in order to secure it), and work began instantly. Magic, like it offered for most things in life, had made the process extremely easy, and the several magical contractors that he had been speaking to had no problem with putting together what he had dreamed up in his head. Jimbo liked to think his restaurant was less gaudy than Madame Puddifoot’s, and despite the name, he did dial it back on the hearts and garnishes that he had initially planned out for the décor. He wanted all sorts of people to come here, students and adults alike, and turning into Puddifoot’s pizza branch wasn’t what he was looking for. If he wanted that, he would have just bought the old girl out and retrofitted the tea shop to the pizza parlour.
The upcoming Hogsmeade weekend was going to be the true testament of willpower and hard work though. Such a thing had never really existed at the matchmaking business, solely because the five previous Jimbos had streamlined the process and all he had to do was continue and expand on what had been done for generations. That sort of thing was easy and natural. Making a pizza was not. He had found a skilled chef and a few wait staff, with the promise of potential part-timers from students on Hogsmeade weekends, and the goal was to spend these first three days getting all the kinks out before it was full steam ahead over the weekend. Of course, being ten in the morning on a weekday in Hogsmeade wasn’t exactly primetime pizza ordering, so Jimbo was casually seated in one of the red and white diner-style booths, happily flipping through the laminated menus he had printed out a few days earlier, giggling to himself at the names of the pizzas. Notably The Unforgivable Cheeses – his version of a three-cheese pizza.
