Merrell's pizza was founded in 2010, when two childhood friends came together with a dream to serve the finest pizza in their community. Both at the age of 24 have a combined total of 24 years restaurant experience. With little money and big dreams they worked hard to save money to buy pizza equipment. They bought equipment piece by piece over a two year period until they had enough to get started.
They knew they wanted to be close to home. When the opportunity came for them to lease the old Poinsett Bakery, they knew as soon as they walked through the doors of the old bakery that this was going to be the beginning of something special. After three short months of remodeling the old Bakery they were able to make their dreams come true. They officially opened the doors to Merrell's Pizza on May 2, 2012.
