The History of Andrew's

Andrew’s Pizza owner Andrew McElderry knows a good slice of pizza is a heck of a lot more than hand-tossed dough, tomato sauce, mozzarella, peperoni, and olives. It has to include some flat-screen television for “the game,” two heaping full-screen theaters for films, a little bit of playroom for the children, and a dash of ‘video arcade’ for the teenagers.

What started twenty-five years ago as a small family run business has grown into several businesses still owned and operated by Andrew and his wife Melissa. BC (before children) you would find them both in the small shop, Melissa baking cakes and pastries and Andrew tossing pizzas. What started with one employee, the not so cheap labor of having your dad working with you, to now employing over thirty. Andrew’s still is a small family run business.  Just as Andrew learned solid work ethics working in his father’s east coast restaurant years ago, both of Andrew’s daughters have spent their summer vacations working as part of the restaurant crew. The original east coast pizzeria has expanded over the years but the real thin crust pizza that built the business is still coming out of the old fashion brick ovens drawing raves and thanks from customers who know and appreciate east coast pizza.

Andrew has always believed that you should be known by actions and not just words and has always given back to the community that he and his family call home. From helping out a small school raffle in Mill A to serving as president of the Chamber of Commerce to volunteering to coach high school Lacrosse, people know that they can count on Andrew’s support.
