Eric Brooks is the owner and is no newcomer to the pizza making business. He has been perfecting his craft for over 35 years.
A former resident of Philadelphia who now lives in Clifton Heights, Eric is the single dad of a 10-year-old daughter. He learned how to make pizza as a young man, working in his stepmother’s King of Prussia pizza shop. After perfecting his pizza-making skills, he opened his own store in Upper Darby at the Mercy Wellness Center on 69th Street. From there he made pizza for the United Artist Movie Theatre on 69th Street until it was sold. From there, he purchased the former drive-through Dairy Queen in Clifton Heights where he ran Eric’s Pizza until his mother got ill and he had to close to care for her. Luckily his mother recovered and that is when he relocated to the spot in Ridley Park.
The store is the former home of Little Hut Sandwich Shop which moved across the street to the former Davis Trading Post a few years ago.
