About John Tatum and his Pizza SRQ
John grew up in a home with a “good-cooking” dad (who also was shift cook for most of the years he served the Sarasota Fire Department). Most of John’s first jobs were in some of Sarasota’s outstanding restaurants where he fine-tuned his people skills and learned the importance of customer service. His “graduate training” was under the direct tutelage of the owner of Demetrio’s of Sarasota. In 2001, John opened D’Aritino’s in Bradenton (named after his three children: Demi, Ari, and Tino), where he served the public and Manatee community for several years.
Once back in Sarasota, John opened PizzaSRQ in April of 2011 at 5674 Palmer Blvd. Here he continues to create, grow, meet your food desires, and team up with schools and organizations to help build a stronger community. John is proud of his heritage and its traditions of educational support and community service—this is a cornerstone of his business operation.
“Although financial success is the prime objective of any business enterprise, I believe this success is attained by offering outstanding products and service, recognizing that every person is a potential customer, and contributing to the community of which I am a part. My primary goal is for a healthy, successful company that is a leader in customer service, has a loyal customer following, and is recognized for its community service to schools, civic organizations, and efforts to make the area thrive.”
