Whitewater, WI (RestaurantNews.com) When Scott Gittrich opened the first Toppers Pizza in Whitewater, Wisconsin 25 years ago, he did so with one goal in mind’to change the landscape of the competitive pizza industry, one delicious box full of Topperstix at a time. Since then, Toppers has established an audacious reputation as the forward-thinking pizza pioneers who never stop innovating. That’s why, on January 18, Toppers will unveil the newest addition to its legendary Topperstix family’and it’s cheesier than ever before: The 3-Cheese Garlicstix.
Today Toppers has 73 stores in 12 states and has tripled in size in about 4 years. There are more than 20 franchisees and 2000 Toppers team members in Toppers Nation and it’s as exciting as ever to be at Toppers because of the fabulous growth and momentum we have. In my role as CEO, I take any opportunity I’m given to share our vision for the future and to invite fabulous people to join us.
