Journey of Destruction, Loss, and Renewal.

This site is a temporary place for you to follow along as we post progress updates on our rebuilding journey. In the next few days and weeks, we'll post news updates and photos, so you can follow along. We’ve gone through many emotions since standing outside Vancouver Pizza Company watching the firefighters work. We as a family have experienced anger, sadness, heartache, and joy when we think about the situation that we find ourselves in. We have invested our hearts and souls in this little restaurant, and this tragedy has brought us much pain because of that investment. However, we know joy though this tragedy also…as we find our family of four growing exponentially through our dedicated employees, loyal business friends in Uptown Village, and in you, our wonderful customers. The calls, e-mails, prayers, words of encouragment, support and offers of help and time are amazing to us. We rebuild because of YOU. Thank you, and we look forward to once again serving you the best pizza in the world!
Thank you
Karen, Cliff, Kristen, Ryan, and the rest of the VPC Team.

I'd like a large Rembrandt to go please.

Hey, Karen, family and staff at Vancouver Pizza. Was sad to see the pictures of your restaurant...such destruction! We know how much of yourselves you have poured into the place and are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers as you struggle to rebuild. It is so wonderful to see how many kind and caring people you have had step forward to share in that rebuilding...so many blessings coming out of such a tragedy. All our love and best wishes are being sent along...we know your business is going to be even bigger and better!! Love, your Alberta sis

Yes on the breadsticks. I'll be by to pick 'em up in a couple months.

Best wishes on rebuilding.

Your biggest Derron's Delight fan here...I will be there when you re-open to pick up my weekly fix of the best salad on the planet! Meanwhile, I will send you all positive thoughts...I would also be happy to send you all a little money. Where do I send it???

Oh how I am missing my lunch special, salad with as many vegtables, honey mustard dressing, combo slice pizza and diet Coke please. I was so sad to hear about the fire, I work in the downtown area and your lunch special is such a great deal and my opinion is no other pizza tastes as good. I am axiously awaiting your re-opening.
