Pizza N' Stuff opens in Fillmore
FILLMORE -- For the past 20 years, Betty Snell of Colfax has been in the pizza business. Since 1999, she has owned and operated Pizza N' Stuff in Tippecanoe County. Before that, she owned and operated Pizza By George near Lebanon.
Now Snell has expanded her business to the Fillmore area by opening a Pizza N' Stuff on S. Main Street.
"(The pizza business) has been very successful," Snell said.
She hopes success continues in such a small town and believes in a little competition. But what sets her pizza apart from the nationally recognized pizza chains? The hand tossed dough and homemade sauce with fresh, hand-chopped vegetables.
"All high-quality ingredients," she added.
Not only can patrons order a 10-inch to 16-inch pizza, but can select from oven-baked sandwiches to pasta to salads.
"If people try the food, I'm confident they'll be back," Snell said.
Snell's daughter, Wendy Graves of Fillmore, will be managing the Pizza N' Stuff in Fillmore, making it a family owned and operated business.
"I take pride in what I do," Graves said. "If (my parents') product can make it in the middle of nowhere, then we can make it happen here."
The restaurant officially opened Sept. 28 and has been slow to build so far. But the family is certain their pizza and stuff will flourish in time.
Pizza N' Stuff is located at 158 S. Main St., across from the elementary school. It is open from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and closed Sunday. Patrons can dine-in or order carryout by calling 246-6727.
