Santucci's Original Square Pizza was founded by the late Joseph and Philomena Santucci. Their incredible story began on 10th and Carpenter in South Philadelphia. In 1959, they moved to Northeast Philadelphia and opened the very first Santucci's Original Square Pizza on "O" Street in Juniata Park. Their dream was to build a strong family business they could eventually leave to their children. Their son, Frank Santucci took over the family business and has maintained the name and the quality of the pizza for the past thirty six years. My grandmother always dreamed of a Santucci's Pizza in the neighborhood where she was raised and started her family. I love my grandmother more than words can say, so Grand-mom, I hope you're watching, this one is for you.
