The History of Giant Pizza......
“Work hard and take pride in your
work. We stand by our food and our
employees. If the customer is not happy
we will take care of them and make it right.”
This is and will always be Feta “Frank” Abdullovski’s motto with Giant
Pizza. This is the philosophy that has
stuck with the company and is the backbone of Giant Pizza.
Frank Abdullovski came to the United
States in 1962 determined to live the “American Dream”. After years of working in the mills Frank
Abdullovski and his brother, Ferik, saw that very opportunity when they bought
Giant Pizza, a small 900 square foot take-out pizza shop in Danielson, CT, in
Frank and wife, Nancy, knew the pizza
business wasn’t going to be easy. They worked hard 7 days a week and worked at
it for 20 years. Giant Pizza was
growing. For many people they didn’t
have to think twice, pizza on Friday nights meant Giant Pizza.
In late 2004 Arben, Frank and Nancy’s
youngest son, decided to join the operations of Giant Pizza. While understanding and respecting his father’s
work ethic, good business sense, and also applying his own educational
knowledge, Arben maintained the backbone of Giant Pizza while increasing its
size and volume.
In April 2008, Frank and Arben opened
their second Giant Pizza location in Willimantic, CT. Two years later Giant Pizza Putnam was opened
featuring a revolutionary concept in the pizza industry with a drive thru. Every year Giant Pizza sells over
100,000 pizzas. It is Arben’s goal to
open more locations and to support the community while creating an outstanding
reputation like his parents did in Danielson.
Giant Pizza is a family oriented company that believes in its people,
its community, and its reputation. Arben
will continue to start and end every day with his father’s motto.
