Born in the winter of 1985, Chuck's of Buffalo
, New York,
was created when owner Chuck and his friends realized that normal takeout pizza simply wasn't cutting it. As they played poker, they discussed local options and agreed: most of the local pizza restaurants were okay, but not great, inconsistent in quality, and lacking the flair to which Buffalonians had grown accustomed. At that moment, a lightbulb went off.
Chuck envisioned a pizza restaurant that offered homemade pizza, wings, and subs, along with an atmosphere that represented the true Buffalo spirit. He sat down with his parents and asked for their help in adding true Italian specialties to his menu. After drawing inspiration from his mother's recipe box, Chuck set out to deliver fresh, homemade food at a cost locals could truly love and appreciate.
