A teenage job can lead to big things. Just ask Doug Craig. He worked at a mom-and-pop pizza shop when he was in high school, and he enjoyed it so much that he vowed that, one day, he’d open his own pizza shop. Twenty years later, Craig opened Dougie John’s Pizza at 106 South Main Street in Findlay with a soft opening in November and a grand opening and ribbon cutting January 2.
Dougie John’s is the only pizza shop in Findlay to offer car-side pick-up service. “You order your pizza online or over the phone, drive to our location, and we come right out to your car to finalize payment and hand you your pizza,” Craig said.
With special ingredients and recipes, Dougie John’s has received rave reviews. Customer favorites include the cheese garlic bread and the taco pizza, which is made with nine different seasonings and spices, two kinds of cheeses and the freshest veggies for one-of- a-kind flavor.
It’s a true family business, as Craig’s wife, Kelly, and his 13-year-old son, Collin, work alongside him to make the pizza shop a success. Craig aspires to expand his pizza shop to eight locations in the next 10 years. But for now, he’s focused on making the Findlay location the best it can be.
