Winton woman gets calls for pizza after restaurant puts wrong number on flyer
A pizza restaurant in Winton recently sent out a flyer to promote sales. The big problem is it used the wrong number for takeout orders.
Wendi Walsh of Winton says it's caused all kinds of problems for her since early September. "About six weeks ago we started getting a couple of phone calls once or twice a week asking what our hours were, or if they could talk to the manager, or place an order."
Since then Walsh's phone has been ringing off the hook. Rico's sent out a flyer to 700 homes in the Winton area back in September but the phone number listed isn't Rico's, it's Walsh's personal number. The mistake was huge because the prefix for Rico's Pizza is 358 not 812.
Walsh's husband talked to the manager of Rico's but left unsatisfied. "I'm sorry it was wrong. Just give them the right phone number when they call. That's it. We've had to change our phone number. We didn't do anything wrong you know this is ridiculous."
Oscar Aguilar, the owner of Rico's Pizza didn't want to talk on camera but claims he did try to apologize to Wendi Walsh. He also wants to to make it right by giving her a gift card."
Rico's has since put out a new flyer with the correct phone number. But Walsh says she keeps getting annoying calls all hours of the day and night. "I feel like they should pay a fine or maybe make a donation to a charity of our choice."
Walsh's calls for pizza should be ending this weekend. That's when her new number goes into service.
