Our History and what we do

We’re a small family owned and operated pizzeria. Plus 1 Pizza – Athens is operated  by Cole Fettes, a former OU student. Cole loved Athens so much he has moved to Athens. Cole is a 3rd generation pizza restaurateur. He was born into a family that has passion for making fresh homemade pizza.  He grew up in the pizza business and learned first hand the passion his father and grandfather had for making a great local pizza. As he grew up he watched and learned how they worked as team to make customers happy. Cole's grandfather, Bob Sr, opened his family pizzeria in his hometown in 1977 and his passion and goal was to make a fresh local pizza that would be the best. As the demand grew for a fresh local pizza in neighboring communities Cole’s father, Bob Jr, continued the craft of making fresh homemade pizzas and now operates four stores in Southeast Ohio. Cole continues in the family tradition of bringing the passion of making a fresh homemade pizza to his hometown –Athens. 

Our idea is simple – make the freshest and best pizza possible by sourcing only the freshest and highest quality ingredients. We work hard each day to provide great service and make people smile, each guest every day. We have fun. We love what we do. And we want everyone to know what we are about. 

We make fresh homemade pizza that people connect over. That’s our thing. We know we’re not negotiating world peace treaties, but we take our job seriously. We live by a set of core values each and every day. We want you to know that when you order from us you can count on us to take your pizza order seriously, that’s what we do.  

We also have a huge dislike for what the big pizza corporations do to pizza and their lack of respect for the very thing we love – a fresh local pizza.  From their cheap cheese and frozen dough, they just fake up the pizza with their cheap toppings. We just don't have much love for the corporate pizza shops in Athens.

Our Mission Statement: To delight every customer one pizza at a time and to be the best pizzeria in the world by killing it on every detail of the customer experience.

Our Core Values 
– Have fun 
– Do it with passion
– Build something special
– Give back to the community
– Give Customers what they want
– Source only the highest quality and freshest ingredients


Although we are new to Athens - we hope that that everyone in Athens will join us in our passion for making a great local pizza and support us in our journey to create fresh handcrafted pizza that people connect over.  

Respect good pizza! Join us in our passion. Enjoy life, have fun, and eat better pizza.

Word Up... What People Say About Us

"This pizza has been perfect everytime, so absolutely delicious I would suggest the bold neopolitan pizza sauce on a thin crust with spicy pepperoni! So good!! Thank you Athens plus one pizza!" - Earl Wood

“ I love their pizza..... I think they quite possibly have the best pizza I have ever had. Their sauce is a little sweeter which I love, and the crust is delicious as well.  Everything is always perfect when I order. Give them a shot, they might just become your new favorite.

“This place is great. I left Athens for a while and moved back and was surprised to see it there. I decided to order from them to give them a try, and now I get them more than any other Athens pizza, they are affordable (unlike a certain place down the street), their staff is amazing, and I have never had a problem with my order (again...unlike that certain place down the street). There are plenty of pizza places in Athens, but most of them are either chains that you can find anywhere or that one place that sells novelty pizzas that cost an arm and a leg and seem more like absurd experiments than food. Also, if you sign up with Plus 1, you get all kinds of deals, they routinely e-mail me great deals. I don't really ever write reviews, but I like this place so much that I feel the least I can do is ...”

“Pizza sub was awesome! There was enough sauce, cheese, and meats to make the perfect sub. it wasn't too crispy, wasn't too dry, and it wasn't bare! Fantastic flavor, and an amazing job!”

I've had Plus 1 three times since they opened (twice delivery, once dine in). Everyone is super friendly and the food is delicious! The delivery times are also crazy reasonable (if you're ordering during the lunch and dinner rushes, don't expect to get it in 30 minutes, just saying). Each delivery I got was made in 30-45 minutes, and I love their online gps tracker. Keep supporting these awesome folks. They may be a little green, but they're soon to be a local favorite!
