How It All Started
Matt went on to work for various restaurants (too many to list), and in 1991 met his wife while working at “The Brick Oven” (Heaps) in Provo, UT. They married, and Jane went to work for Olive Garden as their server trainer. They always wanted a restaurant of their own, so in 2003 the couple moved to Rexburg, Idaho, and took over an abandoned pizza shop. It was located across the street from BYU-Idaho, called Craigo’s.
They put their talents to work creating Craigo’s Gourmet Pizza. The building quickly became too small and in 2005 Craigo’s moved locations in Rexburg, and the community took notice. From humble beginnings as a college hangout, Craigo’s became Pizza Pie Café and what you see today.
