In 1963, a young entrepreneur named Jim Stolfe exchanged his Oldsmobile Starfire for a small storefront pizzeria on 26th Street on Chicago’s South Side. That Bridgeport storefront became the original home of Connie’s Pizza. By the time Mr. Stolfe could afford to change the sign on the front of the store . . . it was too late, the legend and reputation of Connie’s Pizza had already begun.
The Stolfe family still work hard creating new ways to combine ingredients, improve quality and always strive for better ways to improve their business. This dedication, this philosophy, has yielded hundreds of changes, innovations and improvements of the last 45 years. Perfecting everything from their unique dough, on demand drive through service to their famous-heated delivery trucks that bring piping-hot Connie’s Pizza right to your door.
Vince Di Vincenzo will lead us on a tour of Connie’s Pizza, their history with insight into how the pizza business operates: from production to delivery.
We will be touring their kitchens, thus comfortable clothing and shoes are recommended.
