Pepperoni's Pizza is MUCH better. Pirates Pizza wasnt bad, but for $32.50 USD, thats an inferior pizza. If I have to pay that much in the US, its in a nice chic italian restaurant.
As for the price of the business, there have been 2 other businesses that have sold for HALF the price of Pirates Pizza and they have better reputations. I am sure Prate's has a good amount of expensive equipment in there, but you're also buying the "reputation" that Peter has....and everyone has been skirting around saying what that reputation is. Keep that in mind.
Also, why would he sell you a Pizza business when he already has another one that is a direct competitor. If I was him, I would sell Pirates to you, cut my prices at Pedro's in half, advertise like crazy with the $100k USD that you gave me, drive you out of business almost immediately, and then re-secure my previous market share. Sounds like a setup to me. Might want to think this one through a little more.
Its nice to think that everyone in San Pedro is nice and remotely trustworthy, but for the most part, there are a TON of shady people and snakes in the grass to watch out for.
