On March 7, 1971, with $500, a rented storeroom and a few bits of used equipment rescued from the snow and ice of a Pittsburgh scrap yard, Jim Fox fulfilled his lifelong dream of opening a pizza shop in his hometown of Pitcairn, Pennsylvania. As the first pizza slid from the oven at 4:00 that afternoon, he had no way of realizing that he’d be sold out just six hours later, making Fox Pizza Restaurant an instant success.
In 1973, Jim opened a second Fox’s Pizza Den in nearby Harrison City along with a third in East Pittsburgh. Using the opening of his fourth location in Swissvale, Jim introduced an innovative concept that will revolutionize the pizza industry in the Pittsburgh area – home delivery. As word spread, friends began calling Jim about opening franchised pizza shops. Understanding that franchising may help others reach their hopes for independence, Jim incorporated Fox’s Pizza Den in 1974.
Now celebrating our 45th anniversary, we percieve it hasn’t stopped growing. Today there are many than 200 franchises operating coast to coast in 25 states. Fox’s Pizza Distribution, formed in 1986, provides the franchises with consistent high-quality product and reliable distribution. Due to the successful formula, Fox’s Pizza Den was voted best pizza franchise of 1993 through the National Pizza and Pasta Association and received PMQ’s 2005 and 2007 Pizza Industry Enterprise (PIE) award. Fox’s continues to be consistently ranked as among the best pizza and sandwich franchises in the United States by Entrepreneur and Pizza Today magazines.
For making Fox Pizza Hours Of Operation successful, Jim Fox has been capable of provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to achieve their own success and independence while strengthening the economies of small, all-American towns.
he seventh-annual Pizza & Prevention – an annual partnership between area fire departments and Fox’s Pizza Den in Punxsutawney – had been a major success Saturday.

Included in the seventh-annual event, firefighters took part in delivering the pizzas and, while making stops in your own home, examined the customers’ smoke detectors to make certain these people were in working order.
