Jet's Pizza is an American pizza franchise restaurant. It was founded in 1978 in Sterling Heights, Michigan, and operates primarily in the state of Michigan.

History

The first Jet's Pizza was opened in 1978 by brothers Eugene and John Jetts in Sterling Heights, Michigan.[1] The original location was converted from a vacant party store into a restaurant.[2] The Jetts later opened more locations and formed Jet's America Inc. with their cousins, Jim Galloway, Jr. and Jeff Galloway in 1992.[3]

The first franchise location was opened in 1990.[4] As of 2014, Jet's Pizza had 310 franchises and 24 company-owned locations in 19 states.[4] It has restaurants located in Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.[5]

Jet's is known for its square deep-dish Detroit-style pizza, including the 8-corner pizza which the company has trademarked.[6] When the store first opened, the square pizzas were a novelty in the region. The original recipe came from the Jetts' mother and hasn't changed since 1978.[2]
