Park Pizza serving generation after generation
Williamsport’s very own Park Pizza has been open for business since the 60s. After Scott Robinson, owner, had been working there for years, he decided to buy it in the 90s at just 19 years old. Watching generation after generation come into the shop to get pizzas and wings–shows Park Pizza is a “community staple” that locals can count on, he said.
Robinson has been in the restaurant industry for a majority of his life as his parents used to own Henry’s Barbeque in Linden.
“The opportunity to purchase the building came available and I took it,” he said. “Ten years ago we burnt down in a fire and we rebuilt. We are still here 28 years later. I’ve been working here for 32 years.”
The shop, with a menu of the “Best Pizza in Williamsport” and wings, has been community oriented since the beginning, participating in numerous carnivals, school sports team sponsorships and helping out local charities.
“We have always been a community staple. We have been voted ‘best pizza in Williamsport’ multiple years running. We also do what we can to support the local charities and schools,” Robinson said. “We do a lot of stuff with the local sports teams to try to help them out.”
Robinson also said that the tradition that Park Pizza holds is something “amazing” as he continues to keep it going.
“To me, it’s amazing the tradition it holds,” he said. “Ever since I have been here, the people that I have seen come in with their kids and now the kids that I saw be born, are coming in with their own kids. From two to 90, they still come in. I have the best customers in the world, they are always so dedicated.”
