With $500, a rented storeroom and a few pieces 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, Pa. As the ﬁrst pizza slid from the oven at 4:00 that afternoon, he had no way of knowing that he’d be sold out just six hours later, making Fox’s Pizza Den an instant success. Decades later, we’re still an institution in hometowns all over America. The passion for pizza continues.
When I opened my ﬁrst Fox Pizza Den, I was more than happy to see the results I wanted. It was exactly what I hoped the experience would be and more!
