It all started in 1983 when the first Cecil Whittaker’s opened in South County. A small restaurant with a small menu offering dine-in, carry-out and delivery. We saw the demand for a new choice in “St. Louis Style” pizza and quickly opened stores in North County, St. Charles, West County and St. Louis city. We originally served only pizza and salad, but customers wanted more, so we added pastas, sandwiches and appetizers to the menu. During the 1990’s, we grew as a chain and increased our number of units. Today, we have 25 locations to serve you in the greater St Louis area. Chain wide we have 15 different franchise owners representing 22 locations with 3 corporate owned units. We anticipate opening several new locations over the next few years in the metro area along with some out state units. For franchise information use the contact us page.

St. Louis-style pizza is our mainstay: a crispy, cracker-thin crust loaded with our special blend of Cheddar, Colby, Swiss and Mozzarella cheeses. We use only the freshest ingredients for toppings. A wide variety of appetizers broaden our menu, including the St. Louis favorite, toasted ravioli. Buffalo-style chicken wings are a big seller as well. Our salads are fresh and crisp and add a great addition to any order. For something different, try our sandwiches and pastas. A wide range of hot and cold subs are available. Our pastas rival any Italian restaurant in taste and quality. Choices include both red and white sauces.

All locations offer carry-out and fast, hot delivery. Most of our locations have a dining room with exceptional table service for your pleasure. Cold beer is served at most of these locations. We also offer off-site catering for any size function or occasion.
