Coshocton has a new place to get pizza, Dany’s Pizzeria, located at 615 S. Seventh St., inside M2 Drive Thru. Owner, Danyelle Darr, said they opened for business on Feb. 15 and she has been overwhelmed by the welcome they have received and the support from family, friends and people in the community.

Danyelle and her husband, Terry Darr, own M2 Drive Thru and Danyelle is co-owner of The Daily Bread Bakery with Courtney Watson. Danyelle said adding another business was her husband’s idea. She said she and Terry wanted M2 Drive Thru to be a “one-stop shop where families can come and get an affordable dinner, groceries and whatever items they need with the convenience of not having to get out of their cars.”

Danyelle said that Terry has been her biggest inspiration, supporter and encourager. She said aside from him coming up with the idea for the pizzeria, he is also the one who came up with the name, Dany’s Pizzeria, and that “he was there when I doubted myself.” In addition, Danyelle said, “my best friend, Wendy Croy, has been supportive, helpful, and pretty amazing” and “I’ve got a good crew.”

Presently, Danyelle has seven crew members who help her provide great customer service by taking detailed orders and making each item with care. Making a quality product at an affordable price is important to the Darrs.

“Our pizzeria isn’t a chain, we use my own personal recipes, and top ingredients,” Danyelle said. “I didn’t want to cut any corners with ingredients. Our dough and sauces are made in house from my recipes, and I put a lot of thought into every sub and pizza we make. I hope we are known for trying to put an affordable and quality product out.”

The pizzeria offers 9″, 12″ and 16″ pizzas along with various 9″ subs, stromboli, a side salad with gluten free salad dressing options, and a dessert pizza. It is the 10” thin and crispy gluten free cauliflower crust that they offer that surprised Danyelle and a couple of her crew members.

“If you didn’t know it was cauliflower, you wouldn’t be able to tell that it is,” Danyelle said.

At the moment, Dany’s Pizzeria is open Monday-Friday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 4 to 9 p.m. Drive thru menus are available and an online menu can be found by searching Dany’s Pizzeria on Facebook. Orders can be placed by calling 740-575-3037 and can be picked up by walking in or by going through the M2 Drive Thru.

“I’m very thankful to Coshocton for the wonderful feedback we’ve received and the support,” Danyelle said. “I’ve met a lot of new faces. We live in a nice small community, and it’s nice to see faces I wouldn’t normally get to see. The community support has been wonderful, and I’m looking forward to growing as a business.”
