  Pizza Joe’s Observes 40th Year  
  November 5, 2020 Edition  
     Pizza Joe’s started 40 years ago in a 600-square-foot unit with a handful of toppings, homemade tomato sauce, a few sizes of pizza, and a lot of family support.
      The regional chain based in New Castle, Pa. opened its first location on November 10, 1980 next to the childhood home of founder Joseph Seminara, ‘Pizza Joe’.
      “My mother was an excellent pizza maker and I had many family members in the grocery business, as well as an aunt who owned a pizza shop in Youngstown,” said Seminara of his interest in opening his own business.
      Not long after that first shop’s success, Seminara said that community and family support are what drove him to open additional locations within a few short years.
      “I was fortunate to have help from my parents, my wife, and siblings right out of the gate, and once we saw customers returning time and time again we knew we had something special and that additional shops could be a possibility,” he said.
      Four decades later, Pizza Joe’s has 42 locations in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio, and Seminara is still working each day in his business.
      “This year especially we are grateful for being in the pizza industry and for our customers,” Seminara said. “We know others in the food industry have not fared as well as those of us in the pizza space, and to be celebrating 40 years in such a tumultuous time makes us extremely humbled.”
      To celebrate and thank customers, all Pizza Joe’s locations are offering throwback pricing dates in November. Each Tuesday throughout the month will feature one menu item at its original 1980 price. Due to the deep discount on items, they are limited two per customer for carryout or dine-in service only, while supplies last. Additionally, every location will give away 40th anniversary prize packs each Friday in November.
      Pizza Joe’s in Boardman at 6810 Market St., is operated by Mario LaMarca.
