About Godfather's Pizza ~ The Real Story
Godfather’s Pizza was founded in the fall of 1973, in Omaha, Nebraska, following the release of The Godfather movie throughout the country.
The pizza and the concept grew in popularity because of its quality niche and unique offerings. It was a natural role for The Godfather to be the enforcer of this great pizza pie, tagged as a “pie” because of the thick crust filled with quality toppings covered with mountains of mozzarella cheese holding it together.
Today there are more than 640 Godfather’s Pizza locations made up of traditional restaurants, offering dine-in, carryout and delivery, non-traditional units located in airports, universities and many convenience stores.
