Company History

On November 15, 1983, Sam and Sue Sayre purchased Sparky’s Pizza in Smithville and changed the name to Sam’s Pizza. They had been in the food business for two years prior to that as owners of the Golden Bear Drive-In located in Apple Creek, Ohio. In 1986, they sold the Golden Bear and put all their effort into creating a high quality pizza business. Over the next nine years Sam’s Pizza focused on quality, efficiency, and customer service, which paid off as the business continued to grow and prosper. With the Smithville location doing very well, the Sayre’s looked for an opportunity to grow.
 

On July 7, 1992 Sam’s Pizza in Marshallville opened for business. The Sayre’s believed that the town of Marshallville needed and wanted a pizza shop, and knew they would love the opportunity to serve that community. After nine good years of selling pizza and knowing that Marshallville was a great town to have a business, it was time for the next step in Marshallville. In March 2001, Sam’s opened the Marshallville Dairiette. Located with-in Sam’s Pizza, the dairiette serves a full line of ice cream treats and novelties.

In July 2003, Sam’s purchased the Village Market in Smithville with the intent of merging the Village Market and Sam’s Pizza into one business giving more space and the opportunity to grow Sam’s Pizza. After six years of remodeling, growth, and changes the Smithville Sam’s Pizza is a completely new business. Offering our Sam’s Pizza menu, a complete deli with fresh made salads, subs, and wraps, and also our brand new Sam’s Pizza Buffet for lunch and dinner Monday thru Saturday.

In 2003, another division of the company was started to offer affordable catering for both formal and informal events. Village Catering has done many weddings, parties, and office luncheons over the years, offering a wide range of menu options

With the company continuing to grow and prosper, Sam’s Pizza opened its third location on February 1, 2009 in Creston, Ohio. This location offers our full menu and our Sam’s Pizza Buffet for lunch and dinner. This location also has a dairiette serving a full line of ice cream treats. The Creston Sam’s Pizza is doing very well and we can see that the town of Creston is another great town to operate a business.

In May of 2010 we opened our fourth location in Doylestown, Ohio. This location offers our full menu and also includes our all you can eat buffet. Located right on the square of downtown Doylestown it is a great location to stop and grab lunch or dinner anytime. Doylestown has welcomed us with open arms and we have really enjoyed being a part of the community. This location is going to be a great addition to the Sam’s Pizza family.

Sam’s Pizza has always been committed to being very active in our communities. Over ten years ago Sam’s Pizza fundraising was started. Since its conception, over One Million Dollars has been raised for many local churches, schools, and other non profit groups. Additionally, in an effort to encourage education, Sam’s Pizza has awarded over $12,000 in scholarships to local graduates in the area over recent years.

Within the operations of the four Sam’s Pizza locations, Sam’s Pizza Fundraising, and Village Catering, the company employs over 50 team members. With the food and business world changing all the time, who knows what’s next for Sam’s. One thing is for sure, the company will always stay focused on quality products, great customer service, and retaining excellent team members on staff. Staying focused on these things will ensure continued success and growth for many years to come.
