Solorzano’s Pizzerias in Florida recently added a “FJB” pepperoni pizza to its menu in what turned out to be a bonanza for business.
“That stands for “F*ck Joe Biden,” explained Phil Solorzano, the owner of the Sarasota-based pizza chain, to Patch last week.

Solorzano told local media his culinary innovation was inspired by frustration with supply chain issues, like price hikes and goods shortages, which he blamed on the president.
- “Pepperoni more than doubled. Most products have doubled … there are products you can’t find, that are out for two to three weeks,” Solorzano said. “It’s just a pain in the butt.”
Sales of the “FJB” pies started ramping up last week — 10 one day, 20 the next — and on Monday, Solorzano’s said on Instagram, “We can’t make them fast enough!!!! Thank you!!!”
- Solorzano’s has started selling “FJB”-themed T-shirts, which sold out before the first shipment even arrived, per Suncoast News Network.
- From Thursday, the restaurant will also be offering “LGB” pizzas as a tribute to the “Let’s Go Brandon” meme.
