Fox's Pizza Den Franchise

Pizza and specialty sandwiches

Jim Fox started working with pizza when he was 12, hanging around a local pizza shop filling soda machines and folding pizza boxes. In 1971, at age 24, he started Fox's Pizza Den in Pitcairn, Pennsylvania. With $500, a rented storeroom and a few pieces of used equipment (rescued from a snow-covered Pittsburgh scrap yard), he began to build his empire. In 1973, Fox's Pizza Den started offering home delivery. Since 1974, the company has grown to over 150 franchises. Fox's Pizza is a family-owned and -operated company that offers toppings such as pepperoni, sweet peppers, hot banana peppers, beef, bacon, anchovies, black olives, pineapple and more. Fox's also offers stromboli, gourmet pizzas, hoagies and wedgies (a sandwich served on pizza crust). Jim Fox assisted with Carnegie Mellon University's robotic team in developing the country's first pizza-making robot to help the physically disabled own and operate their own shops.
