Our Story

Here at Fox’s Pizza

We’re family owned, and we treat our customers in Santee like family, too. The original Fox’s Pizza Den opened in 1971 in Pitcairn, PA by pizza-man extraordinaire Jim Fox. His focus on fresh ingredients and his penchant for treating his customers like family soon made this first Fox’s Pizza Den so well known that he opened two more Pizza Dens in just a few years. Now, 40 years later, we’re still serving authentic, hand-tossed Italian pizza. And because of you, we’ve grown! Fox’s Pizza Den has more than 300 franchised stores in more than 30 states across the country. 

We’re currently ranked 12th out of the Top 25 pizza chains in the world! We were named “Best Pizza Franchise in America” in 2007, and our founder, Jim Fox, was named one of the top entrepreneurs in the United States in 2002 by the Small Business Administration. What we’re doing workswe know that because our customers keep coming through our doors.

Meet our founder

Jim Fox

On March 7, 1971, 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, Pennsylvania. 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.

In 1973, Jim opened a second Fox’s Pizza Den in nearby Harrison City and a third in East Pittsburgh. With the opening of his fourth location in Swissvale, Jim introduced an innovative concept that would 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.
