Memories and Milestones

Click to view full sizeIt all started in July of 1964. Two long-time friends and high school classmates, Albert Broughton and James Harrell (better known as Abby and Skinny), opened the doors of the very first Abby’s Pizza Inn on N.E. Stephens in Roseburg, Oregon. It wasn’t long before word of Abby’s spread like melted mozzarella cheese throughout the region, and a legend was born.

In June of 1965, Abby and Skinny added to the legend by opening their second Abby’s – this time in Grants Pass, Oregon. During the next eight years their operation mushroomed to include seven more outlets, each built around a simple, successful formula: create a friendly, family atmosphere. Maintain the highest operating standards. And serve great pizza.

By 1997, Abby’s Legendary Pizza locations could be found from Wenatchee, Washington to Medford, Oregon. Today, there are 35 Abby’s locations serving hungry pizza customers throughout Washington and Oregon.
