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.
