About Frank Pepe Pizzeria

Pepe’s was founded in New Haven by Frank Pepe in 1925, who immigrated to the United States in 1909 at the age of 16.

“It’s remarkable that after 97 years of business, we are still creating traditions that keep people coming back for more,” said Jennifer Kelly, granddaughter of Frank Pepe. “Seeing how much fans look forward to the Fresh Tomato Pie each year is truly something special.”

In its 97 years in business, the family-owned and operated pizza eatery has established itself as an American classic, amassing a legion of fans worldwide along with a growing list of accolades and recognitions from top-tier organizations and national critics. The brand has earned the number one spot on The Daily Meal’s list of Best Pizzas in America nine times.
