Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana was founded in 1925 by Frank Pepe who was born on Italy's Amalfi coast.
He immigrated to the United States in 1909 at 16 with little more than his health and a strong work ethic.
Pepe originated the New Haven-style thin crust pizza, which he baked in bread ovens fired by coke -- a byproduct of coal.
Frank Pepe's has several locations across Connecticut, many in Fairfield County, and is well-known for its white clam pizza.
The restaurant was rated among the most popular in the world by Zagat last year. Many celebrities have made guest appearances at Frank Pepe's, most recently Joe Girardi.
Congratulations, Frank Pepe's!
