New restaurant in Hovmantorp
New Year's Day is an intense day for the country's pizzerias. It is the most popular day to order pizza and someone who immediately got to know what it is like to run a pizzeria during the big pizza day is Khaled Ibrahim. A few days earlier he opened a new pizzeria in the station building in Hovmantorp.
– There were a lot of orders. It has been going well and there have been a lot of people here who have bought pizza, says Khaled Ibrahim to Smålandsposten.
Khaled Ibrahim is from Damascus in Syria but has lived in Hovmantorp for the past five years. Previously, he worked at Farbror's sign in Hovmantorp, which came in handy when he needed help with the signage of the new restaurant.
– I want it to be a special place for the Hovmantorps residents, he tells Smålandsposten.
