On March 7, 1971, with $500, a rented storeroom and some bits of used equipment rescued from the snow and ice of a Pittsburgh scrap yard, Jim Fox fulfilled his lifelong dream of opening a pizza shop in his hometown of Pitcairn, Pennsylvania. As the first pizza slid from the oven at 4:00 that afternoon, he had absolutely no way of knowing that he’d be sold out just six hours later, making Fox Pizza Specials an instant success.
In 1973, Jim opened a second Fox’s Pizza Den in nearby Harrison City as well as a third in East Pittsburgh. With all the opening of his fourth location in Swissvale, Jim introduced a cutting-edge concept that could revolutionize the pizza industry in the Pittsburgh area – home delivery. As word spread, friends began calling Jim about opening franchised pizza shops. Realizing that franchising could help others reach their dreams of independence, Jim incorporated Fox’s Pizza Den in 1974.
Now celebrating our 45th anniversary, we see it hasn’t stopped growing. Today there are other than 200 franchises operating coast to coast in 25 states. Fox’s Pizza Distribution, formed in 1986, provides the franchises with consistent high-quality product and reliable distribution. Due to its successful formula, Fox’s Pizza Den was voted best pizza franchise of 1993 by the National Pizza and Pasta Association and received PMQ’s 2005 and 2007 Pizza Industry Enterprise (PIE) award. Fox’s has been consistently ranked among the best pizza and sandwich franchises in the usa by Entrepreneur and Pizza Today magazines.
To make Fox Pizza Hours Saturday a success, Jim Fox has become capable of provide entrepreneurs with the chance to achieve their particular success and independence while strengthening the economies of small, all-American towns.
he seventh-annual Pizza & Prevention – an annual partnership between area fire departments and Fox’s Pizza Den in Punxsutawney – had been a major success Saturday.
According to Scott Anthony, the property owner of Fox’s Pizza Den in Punxsy, the big event raised about $20,000. He stated that figure is actually a 30-percent increase over last year’s amount, while Fox’s sold a mix of 2,350 Big Daddy Pizzas, plus coupon cards.
Within the seventh-annual event, firefighters took part in delivering the pizzas and, while making stops in your own home, looked at the customers’ smoke detectors to ensure they were in working order. For all those homes that did fdvsat have smoke detectors, firefighters provided the devices, thanks to Nationwide Insurance-The Kengersky Agency, while Wal-Mart provided batteries.
Anthony come up with Fox And Hound Bar And Grill effort a year after Sept. 11, 2001, in order to show gratitude toward the community’s firefighters, who, in addition to keeping the community safe, spend much of the season fund-raising for necessary equipment and training.
