A new pizzeria is opening south of Boston and its equipment is coming from two beloved spots that are no longer in business.
Wicked Local is reporting that Squinny's Pizza is going to open in the former front office of Quintal Bros. Produce in Plymouth, with owner Dicky Quintal installing equipment from both Al's and Ernie's including the iconic "chicken machine" from the former. The article says that the Scobee Circle spot will also have Al's pizza oven and Ernie's decades-old dough mixer among other items, and that Ernie's pizza chef (Johnny Lombardi) and head chef (Stephen Moore) will be working at the place. Once it opens, Squinny's will offer pizza--which will apparently be somewhat similar to Ernie's--along with soups, salads, and subs, and it is slated to be open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday.
The chicken machine from Al's has a chicken that starts clucking, spinning around, and laying an egg with a prize inside for those who insert money into the machine.
The address for this upcoming pizzeria in Plymouth is: Squinny's Pizza, 11 Scobee Circle, Plymouth, MA, 02360.
