    William M. Theisen: He opened Wild Willys in 1973 selling pizzas. He began franchising Godfather’s Pizza in 1975, which became a publicly traded company in 1982. He sold the pizza chain in 1983 and served as Vice Chairman of the Board of Diversifoods, Inc. until his resignation in 1984. He became the President of Business Ventures that same year. He purchased controlling interest in Green Burrito in 1984; in 1994, he became Chairman of the Board and CEO of the company. He received the City of Hope Spirit of Life Award and the Brownell-Talbot School Recognition Award. He became a franchisee of Famous Dave’s in 2000. (Source)

    According to the assassinated investigator of the Boystown and Franklin Credit Union scandal, Thiesen was also a heavy cocaine user with others in the Omaha, Nebraska area. (Source) His alleged close friend, Jimbo Jogusch was also named on the list. (Ibid).

    It appears that Larry King, the main player in the child molestation/Satanic Ritual Abuse ring, also placed his victims in the restaurant industry. Larry was purportedly partners with one Shirley Jordan in the Omaha area, and employed spme of his victims there. (Ibid.) One Steve Turner, who allegedly recruited young victims for King and others to abuse, worked at both Franklin Credit Union and then Godfather’s Pizza. (Ibid)

    Pizza delivery opens the door for other “deliveries” as well. For example:

    “Cops in Chicago busted 19 people in association with a pizza delivery/illegal drug business. The ring operated out of a host of food joints in the area selling narcotics alongside the food delivery orders. During the investigation cops said five pounds of cocaine was sold as well as Vicoden and Ecstasy. The combined street price of the narcotics was over $160,000. Each of the 19 suspects bail was set at $50,000. After the arrest cops said the ring “had been a thorn in the side” of authorities for quite some time.” (Source)

    I remember hearing rumors of just such a “delivery” service in Parma, Ohio, when I was in politics. Interestingly enough the Treasurer’s office at City Hall was busted for trafficking cocaine and the mayor purportedly died of a cocaine overdose. The narcotics were rumored to have been linked to a pizza and delivery ring.

    Prostitution and Pizza Delivery can also be linked:

    “Albuquerque Police have busted a very shady pizza operation — not for health violations but for peddling skin along with pepperoni. Police say Jose Rengifo, 51, was running a prostitution ring disguised as a pizza delivery operation, which was only disrupted after Rengifo handed out a flier for the pizza at a popular lunch hangout for police officers. Investigators eventually learned that potential customers would call the number on the flier and order a pizza, at which point they would be directed to a home in southwest Albuquerque. Police say customers were paying $2 a minute for sex once inside the home!” (Source)
