Donatos Pizza recently held a ribbon cutting with the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce to celebrate their grand opening at 1148 South Bryant Avenue.
Edmond natives and brothers, Will and Matt McLain, are excited to bring the first Donatos in Oklahoma to their hometown.
Donatos was founded in 1963 by Jim Grote, in Columbus, Ohio. When Jim was 13, he took a job at a local pizza shop. By his sophomore year at Ohio State University, the pizza business had him hooked for life. Jim bought the shop in 1963 for $1,300. He kept the name, Donatos, derived from Latin meaning “to give a good thing”—the perfect way to describe the Donatos’ promise: “To serve the best pizza and make your day a little better.”
As the business grew, Jim raised his family in a home behind that first pizza shop. This mix of work, friends and family helped define Donatos’ distinctive culture, a family oriented premium pizza brand that believes every piece is important.
Donatos features the Edge to Edge pizza, created by Jim Grote himself. Donatos has been serving fresh hand cut veggies, premium provolone cheese, & 100 pieces of pepperoni on every large pizza for over 60 years now.
