Santucci’s Original Square Pizza was founded in 1959 by the late Joseph and Philomena Santucci. Theirfamily recipe for making pizza in a square pan with the sauce on top of the cheese was considered unconventional at first, but quickly became a staple in Philadelphia. With over 60 years in business, the Santucci Family continues to grow their brand. With five locations covering South Philadelphia, Center City, North Broad, Roxborough, Ventnor, NJ and Ocean City NJ, Santucci’s is able to reach and serve a large portion of the city their brand was rooted in. To celebrate 60 years in business, Santucci’s Original Square Pizza started franchising its brand in the hopes to grow the brand to the next level. Three generations later, this brand is stronger than ever!
