Three short years ago, a wish came true for Ritchie County residents, Jeff and Kelly Adams.
“Owning a restaurant is something I’ve always wanted to do. Come to find out, when I met Jeff, it was something that he always wanted to do. The opportunity came and here we are,” said Kelly.
After working in the pizza business for quite some time, Kelly and her husband Jeff turned their dream into a reality. With crazy concoctions, like their ‘Peanut Butter and Jelly calzone’ along with their hand-tossed pizzas, there’s something for everyone at the Pizza Box.
“A lot of people love our taco pizza, our taco salads, our pulled pork pizza – a lot of people love them,” said Jeff.
For the people who come in, that’s who they do it for. By sponsoring numerous community and school events, on top of helping out with hundreds of fundraisers per year, the Pizza Box is a staple for giving back to the people they serve.
“We sponsor softball teams, tee-ball teams, baseball teams. We do concessions for the middle school sports. We sponsor some race car drivers, our first responders. We’re a small community and we support them and they support us. We really enjoy giving back,” said Kelly.
The pepperoni rolls and pizza don’t stop there. Jeff designed and invented a mobile hotbox to fit over 20 pies in his car, so that he can bring the hot pizza to factory and oilfield workers from Pennsboro to the Ohio border and keep the love and support flowing through their hometown.
“Like I said, that’s what we’re all about. We like our community and we love Ritchie County,” said Jeff.
