Beggars Pizza was founded in 1976 by Angelo Garetto in Chicago, Illinois. The company operates a franchise pizza restaurant.
The company currently has more than 20 locations, with the original location still operating every day. The pizza chain is best known for their super deep dish Chicago style pizza, as well as their motto, “We lay it on thick.” The restaurant offers a full menu, which, besides pizza, includes salads, beef and sausage sandwiches, pasta dishes, and hamburgers.
Beggars Pizza is still owned and operated by the Garetto family, with headquarters in Chicago, Illinois. The company has won several awards for their pizza, including Best Deep Dish Pizza in 2012 and Chicago’s Best Thin Style Pizza by the Chicago Pizza Fest.
