When it comes to food, pizza is usually on the top of people’s list of favorites. In downtown Redlands there is a family owned business that serves homemade gourmet pizza with an Italy twist. If you have driven down East State Street in the heart of downtown Redlands, then most likely you have seen The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe.
The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe opened on January 9, 1998 by Redlands natives Bill Craw, his son Don Craw and Scott Brandt. They opened the restaurant with the goal of providing a unique and high quality product in a relaxed and enjoyable setting. They use the highest quality and freshest ingredients to make sure that customers have an enjoyable dining experience. In addition to the enjoyable atmosphere the restaurant would not be successful without a great staff.
“We have an excellent crew of young people who have worked for us for awhile,” Bill Craw said.
When you enter The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe you feel as if you have entered into a plaza or cafe setting in Italy. This unique Italy setting is just one of the things that sets The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe aside from its’ competition. They also offer more than 65 gourmet, homemade pizzas with over 120 toppings.
