FOX CITIES FYI WWW. POSTCRESCENT .COM WEDNESDAY |JULY16|2014 A3 Reader question: It seems Brothers Three Pizza in Applet on is expanding and changing their name to ‘zza Odyssey P izzeria. Are we losing the Brothers Three franchise and their great-tasting recipe? Answer: The Brothers T hree organization and its l ocal franchisees, sisters Cindy W etzel and Ellen Brown, parted ways July 1. The pizza shop at 3414 W. College Ave. in Grand Chute w as renamed ‘zza Odyssey P izzeria and Pub and is cur- r ently open. It’s in the same shopping strip as HuHot and Fleet Feet. “We had different philosophies,” Wetzel said about the s plit. “The franchise agree- m ent wasn’t working out as we anticipated.” With the switch to a new, independent concept, the sisters are making notable c hanges. “ We had the opportunity to t ake over the vacant space (a former cash store spot) next to us,” Wetzel said. “We’ll have additional seating and a bar a rea.” T hey’ll go from 20 seats to a bout 80 in the doubled space. Renovations should be complete by mid to late August. Wetzel said they’ve kept the four key food categories — pizza, sandwiches, wings and salads — and developed similar recipes. “They’re not the same recipes because we’re not part of the franchise. We’ve taken t hings we liked best and refined or improved on them. The sauce, for example, had a v ery high sodium content. We still have a tangy, robust fla- v or, but we have a lot less salt.” See the menu at zzaodyssey. com. Online ordering should be b ack up today.

Iacquire books the way some people acquire clothes, shoes or s ouvenir shot glasses: I can’t go into a bookstore and leave empty-handed. There are worse habits to have, especially considering everything Ilearned from reading. B ooks helped me understand historical events and current o nes. The authors I read helped me fall in love with words, and they challenged my thinking. I ’m thankful my parents nurtured my love of reading and had the means to buy books for me on o ccasion. I’m also grateful my school library was filled with titles I could check out. Not every child is so blessed. Child Care Resource and Referral in Kimberly is part of an initiative aimed at changing that. It’s a collection site for the Once Upon a Book Drive, which collects and distributes quality children’s books to early childhood education programs and families in need across the state. You can drop off new or gently used books until Aug. 31or buy and donate through Amazon Smile: ch/36-5263016.
