Our local pizza courier is "Piratino 2". There is a "Piratino 1", but they don't use the "1" on their website.

a forensic 🍕 🧵
On the surface, they seem _very_ similar. They use nearly identical logos. In general, their websites are the same. Menus and prices are similar but not identical.
Both websites resolve to the same IP address (dig)
Both domains are registered to the same person, Kaya Davut (whois)
Let's go deeper. There are 2 businesses in Kanton Zürich with the name "Piratino". It turns out that they aren't officially linked, despite many overlapping details.
"Piratino1 Gastro GmbH" is registered at the address Jabok-Fügli-Strasse, shown on the contact form of piratino​.ch, as well as the two domain registrations. It's actually residential address. And a new person enters the mix. Erika! zh.chregister.ch/cr-portal/ausz…
On Google Maps, "Piratino Pizzeria Take Away" is listed as Jakob-Fügli-Strasse 18, right on the corner of Badenerstrasse. OK. that makes sense.
"Piratino AG" is registered at Badenerstrasse, near the corner with Jakob-Fügli-Strasse. The lone board member is the domain owner Kaya. zh.chregister.ch/cr-portal/ausz… For the record, Piratino2 has Sieberstrasse as their contact address (which seems to be their pizza dispatch address)
Searching Davut Kaya's name in the Commercial Registrar, we find a self-named GmbH with the address on Sieberstrasse. But this GmbH, named after Davut Kaya, is owned in its entirety by Ramazan Çira.
Shareholders and transactions of an GmbH are public, and it seems that Kaya Davut created "Kaya Davut GmbH" as a pizza courier business in 2009, and it was eventually sold in its entirety to Ramazan Çira.
My conclusions
+ "Kaya Davut GmbH" is 100% owned by Ramazan Çira
+ Kaya Davut, the person, is the sole board member of Piratino AG
+ "Piratino1 Gastro GmbH" runs piratino․ch
+ "Piratino AG" runs piratino2․ch

My assumptions:
+ "Kaya Davut GmbH" owns some share of "Piratino AG"

+ I'm more confused than before, but as of today I'm the domain squatter on piratino3.ch. All offers welcome!
