The Teresa’s Pizza story began in 1969 when, using a family recipe handed down from her father, Augie, Teresa and her family opened their first store in Maple Heights, a suburb of Clevelend, Ohio. Using only the best ingredients and fresh-baked dough, the restaurant created one of the finest pizzas in the Cleveland area. Since 1990, Teresa’s Pizza has methodically grown to more than a dozen locations around Cleveland through franchising.
