DELIVERY BY CADILLAC
The next thing you know, Joe and his brother Pep were packing frozen Tombstone pizzas in dry ice (who knew that was a thing?!), redefining the concept of frozen pizza - tasty crust, 100% real cheese, ample toppings, and zesty sauce, delivering the pizzas out of the trunk of their 1959 Cadillac. Before they could blink, the Tombstone Tap was a pizza making machine, with nine employees and even a shiny new refrigerated truck!
BRICK AND MORTAR. AND PEPPERONI.
With demand for their pizzas through the roof, the Simeks opened their first large-scale manufacturing facility. By this point, pizza production was in full swing, grocery stores were stocking their shelves, and hungry people everywhere were asking for that zesty TOMBSTONE® pizza taste!
A PIZZA LEGACY
How much do people love TOMBSTONE® pizza? So much so, they were finally able to go national in ‘96! Taking family pizza night to a whole new zesty level, Tombstone joined Nestlé, keeping the Simek brothers’ original tavern sensation alive. And, that tradition still lives on in each and every TOMBSTONE® pizza!!
Well, that’s all she wrote. Or he wrote. So grab a slice, do a little dance (preferably NOT the “Peppermint Twist”) and see where TOMBSTONE® takes you.
