Our family tradition began more than 67 years ago with Sam Perrella – or as we like to call him, Grandpa Sam.

As World War II soldiers returned home from Italy telling tales of their favorite food, the popularity of pizza in the U.S. grew. Sam Perrella, a former miner who owned a small café in Keewatin, picked up on this growing trend. Having connections in Chicago, Sam visited with some pizza makers and returned home with an idea that sparked and gave birth to what is now Sammy’s Pizza.

In October 1954, armed with enthusiasm and their own secret recipes, Sam and wife, Louise, opened the doors of the first Sammy’s Pizza restaurant in Hibbing, MN.

As their business flourished, they helped their family and a close friend open their own pizza restaurants. Today, some 67 years, 14 locations and more than 25 million pizzas later, Sammy’s is now in its fourth generation of pizza makers, who all still use Sam’s original recipes.
