Who would think that an after-school job would lead to a life-changing event? In 1982, a kid seeking part-time work applied as a dishwasher at Oakland Pizza.
Chris George, that Indian Hills High School student, is now the proud owner of Oakland Pizza. Chris learned from the ground up, mastering his culinary skills with the previous owner, and over time, learning all aspects of the restaurant business. He found his calling. After graduating from William Paterson College (yes, back then it was just a college!), Chris was excited to stay with Oakland Pizza, learning every aspect of the business while taking on more and more management responsibilities.
It was Chris’s ultimate dream to own Oakland Pizza, and in 2006, the opportunity presented itself. Chris works hard to uphold the values and traditions that Oakland Pizza has prided itself on since its inception: excellent food, great service, and a friendly, inviting atmosphere. Oakland Pizza has always been a gathering place for friends and families to share those special times. It is not unusual for several generations of customers to all come in for a family dinner, and that speaks for itself! So, come on in and make some memories with us.
And speaking of generations, Chris’s sons Trevor and Zach are now working at the restaurant waiting tables and working behind the counter, and are happy to continue the Oakland Pizza tradition.
