They also made it easy for people to get LoPiez by adding delivery to their business a couple of months ago. Davenport both offer now, and Moline / Analog will exclusively open for relay and delivery so Illinois can roll back its COVID-19 restrictions.
“I’m excited to be part of Moline’s team,” said Lopez. “I think a lot of Illinois people are excited, too. Quad-Cities really like our style of pizza and the fact that we do things differently. It’s a completely different approach than here.”
In a downtown Davenport location, the brothers boosted their pizza business by making their margaritas available for carry-on. But the cocktail side of the work will not follow Mullen, since the analogue already has a bar.
Two months after opening in Moline, LoPiez plans to take its food truck out of winter storage and continue where it left off, picking up steam as a regular stop at local breweries and private parties.
Lopez said that in addition to cutting expenses in some areas to tackle the pandemic, the brothers have used their marketing fire to keep their branding ahead.
“I had no formal education in marketing, but I have lived in Denver for over 11 years and have worked with touring orchestras,” he said. “You have to find a way to get people’s attention.”
