Fox’s Pizza Den was founded in 1971 by Jim Fox in Pitcairn, Pennsylvania. With a $500 investment, Fox sold out all pizzas made the first day within the first 6 hours of opening. The company operates a chain of pizza restaurants across the US. All of the 280 locations, found in 28 states, are franchised. The company consistently ranks in the Top 25 pizza restaurants in the world.
In 2002 Jim Fox was named by the Small Business Administration as one of the country’s top entrepreneurs. Today, however, many of the franchises have closed due to bad business practices. This has lead to the SBA discontinuing lending money for new Fox Pizza franchises.
Fox’s Pizza Den, in addition to pizza, also offers sandwiches, stomboli, Hoagies, and salads. Company headquarters are located in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.
