The company was incorporated in 1959 and is headquartered in Detroit, Mich. It is a franchisor which features chicken wings, pizza, Crazy Bread products and other related products. This carryout-only pizza chain has establishments which sometimes also operate a drive-thru window and offer delivery service. The firm started as a single family-owned restaurant in 1959 and has now become third-largest pizza chain in the U.S., after Domino’s and Pizza Hut.
