New Jersey Company Says It Can Make Any Pizza Taste Like NYC's

Every New Yorker’s nightmare

Imagine, NYC quality pizza and bagels in Phoenix, Tulsa, and even Fort Wayne! This New Jersey company seems to think it’s possible. New York WaterMaker is a filtration system that aims to replicate the molecular makeup of New York City water and bring its unique taste to the masses.

According to WaterMaker’s website, “The New York WaterMaker system is a patent-pending water source replication system that not only functions as a commercial water filter, but also replicates the exact hardness, molecular structure, and chemical composition of a specific location’s water, with a key focus on replicating NYC’s water.”

The means foods New Yorkers claim are better in the Big Apple could be just as tasty in the Midwest or even in the South! Looks like those classic New York pizza joints could be in for some major competition. “Furthermore,” writes the product website, “it improves the taste and texture of bread, coffee, tea, water, carbonated beverages and other recipes.”

Paul Errigo, the president and CEO of New York WaterMaker, told Pizza Today, “We have not even released the New York WaterMaker to the public, and yet we have already received multiple calls by restaurant chains and franchises interested in hearing more about our system. I am not sure how they are hearing about us, but we are confident that this will be a game changer for the culinary world.”

“We think there is a market for microbreweries and coffee franchises [too],” Errigo also told the New York Post.
