NHCCC Hosts Ribbon Cutting at Pizza House
Cicero, Ind. Pizza House hosted a special grand re-opening and ribbon cutting celebration last week to highlight its history and celebrate the future.
“This is an exciting milestone for Pizza House and our community,” said Liz Foley Nelson, President, Northern Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce. “Small businesses like Pizza House are local job creators and help bolster tourism. They are what makes a difference in our community.”
Dan Strong, Cicero Town Council President and an officer with the Northern Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce agrees. “These small, local businesses are assets. They help fuel economic innovation and prosperity in Cicero and the northern part of the county. It’s been exciting to watch how Pizza House, a staple in our community, has evolved over the years.”
The local restaurant holds a special place for Tayler Millbank, a 2012 Hamilton Heights graduate, who has been the backbone of the business for the past 13 years. This re-grand opening marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for Pizza House. “Pizza House has been my home away from home since high school and has given more than I could ever give back,” explained Millbank, of the challenges, experiences, and growth as an entrepreneur in his hometown. “It’s been a blessing and an honor to be a part of keeping this business viable and a strong contributor to the local economy.”
Steve and Karmen Little, who have called Hamilton County home for nearly 30 years, said they fell in love with town a few years back. “There were a lot of really neat things happening in Cicero and we wanted to be a part of it,” said Steve Little as he shared part of the backstory of why he wanted to invest in Pizza House and the community.
“The restaurant is a unique and special amenity in Cicero,” continued Little. “It offers simple elegance in dining and the type of energy and welcoming atmosphere that residents and visitors alike just love. Plus, the food is really good.”
This special celebration served as an opportunity to extend a thank you to the community and customers while highlighting some of the enhancements, inside and out, including the following additions; outdoor patio, beer and wine offering, increased seating capacity.
