Meet Deanna Kyncl & Sahel Sobhani
Sahel Sobhani and Deanna Kyncl had not originally planned to become entrepreneurs. Both were working in other local industries when they began to collaborate on the idea of starting a business together. Having grown up in entrepreneurial families, they say business was probably in their blood. With this background, plus a fantastic secret family recipe for home-made pizza, it seemed natural to open up a pizzeria.
Sahel and Deanna were thrilled with the responses they received, both from residents of Vanderhoof as well as the local business community. In fact, says Deanna, the sense of camaraderie and partnership continually amazes them. The partners recount a story from the second day after their business opened almost six years ago. “Our dough mixer quit working,” remembers Deanna and in a panic (and amidst a few tears) they called Woody’s Bakery, whose owner was quick to lend them his dough mixer. “Without his kindness, we would never have been able to operate for those first few weeks.”
Sahel and Deanna keep this story in the forefront of their minds when it comes to helping out others in the community of Vanderhoof. They have supported numerous local charities, groups and events over the last five and a half years because they recognize how important it is to look out for one another in a small community.
Fresh. Home-Made. Delicious.
Business partners and owners, Sahel Sobhani and Deanna Kyncl, wouldn’t dream of serving pizza from a mix. Their secret family recipe has been perfected over 25 years by Mom and Pop home cooks and adapted to serve the Cozy Corner Pizzeria’s loyal customers. Sahel and Deanna are proud of the fact that their unique recipes are made on-site and cooked from scratch using fresh ingredients.
Customers rave about their service and food. Their support has made it possible for the duo to expand and begin plans for opening a second location in Cluculz Lake. They also plan to expand their menu soon to include home-made desserts. Both, Sahel and Deanna, are excited about their future and are looking forward to serving even more pizza lovers in the future.
