FBBA President Jennifer Welp awarded Bob Westrup, owner of Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n Bake Pizza the FBBA Spotlight of the Month Award at the regular noon meeting held March 8, 2017, at Funtrackers’ Speedway Cafe’. Papa Murphy’s is located in the shopping center at 10241 South Padre Island Drive facing Waldron Road. Wastrup thanked Welp and the Flour Bluff Business Association for all that they do.
“We have been here a little over 6 years, and we have survived due to the FBBA and the people in the community,” said Wastrup. “We need to keep it in the Bluff and help all our businesses.”
When Welp commended Wastrup for helping the school and various other organizations, he said, “Being part of the community, it’s the responsibility of a business owner to give back.”
Specializing in scratch-made dough, freshly shredded, 100% whole-milk mozzarella cheese, and fresh veggies, Papa Murphy’s has a little something for everyone. To see what they have to offer, visit the Papa Murphy’s website or pay a visit to the Flour Bluff site where you will more likely than not, see Bob hard at work behind the counter.
