The Birth of a Tradition
Back in 1982, the pizza industry was just starting to come into its own as a major dinner choice for the average family. It was in that year college friends Tim and Mark along with their friend Dan, first opened its doors of Pompeii's Pizza in downtown Reed City, Michigan. After a very successful 3 year debut, Pompeii's opened a second location in Baldwin. It soon became apparent that they had hit upon a very favorable recipe and restaurant style which lead to a third location to open in Scottville in 1989.
After expanding the facility in Baldwin in 1991 and finding great success along the US 10 corridor, plans began to open a large Pompeii's/gas station/convenience store (and eventually a Taco Bell Express) all under one roof in Evart, MI. While this project was under construction, another location was opened in Rogers Heights, MI. The Evart location opened in 1995 and was a huge success. After 10 incredible years, the Evart location was bought out by Wesco and a couple smaller stores were sold.
In 2009 Pompeii's added the Marquette Room, a beautiful banquet facility to the Baldwin restaurant. Then, in 2013, the opportunity opened in Evart to re-open Pompeii's at a new location. That store opened in 2014 and is now running successful.
For almost 35 years, Pompeii's has been serving hot, fresh, and delicious pizza. We hope you will soon have the chance to join us and enjoy a tasty northern Michigan tradition.
