John and Eugene Jetts opened their first Jet’s Pizza in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1978. The company offers casual dining and makes pizzas, salads, and submarine sandwiches. Jet’s Pizza is known for their signature Deep Dish, 8 Corner pizza, which they have trademarked.
Today, the company has 350 locations in 18 states across the US. The Jetts decided to expand the business and added their cousins, the Galloways, as partners, forming Jet’s America, Inc. Jet’s Pizza had annual revenue in 2013 of $268 million.
The original pizza recipe comes from one that the Jetts mother used. It hasn’t been changed since 1978 and the Jetts say that, although it might cost a bit more to make it this way, they believe it is the best pizza recipe in America.
