Growing up in an Italian family, food and friends are a big part of our life. The O.E. originally opened in 1976 but was closed and shuttered in 1983 when we became aware of the opportunity through a friend of a friend. Terry was already in the food business and his uncle, who owned a successful pizza chain in California, was a big influence on our business model. And what better way to make a living than working with family, making new friends and serving GREAT pizza!
