Owners Travis & Wendy have been in the pizza industry for over 16 years. How did they end up in Lacon? They had an opportunity to move into Travis' Great-grandma's 105 year old farm. With 5 kids, a love of the Mid-West, and a knack for making great pizza...it makes perfect sense! The Pizza Peel is located in the old Legion hall on 5th Street (St. Rt. 17). The entire lower level has been remodeled and renovated into a quaint, comfortable and inviting dinning experience.
Meet the Business Owner: Travis G. I was born in Peoria and lived in Pekin as a child (I spent every summer on my Great-grandma's farm). For the past 20 years I have lived in Colorado. There I met my wife, Wendy and we had four of our five children. In 2008 we moved 1100 miles to just outside Sparland, Il. and began building The Pizza Peel.
My first experience in the pizza industry came in 1994 as I took on the job of Prep Manager (read: dough boy) at a local pizza place in Greeley, Colorado. From there I worked my way up: delivery driver, pizza maker, shift manager, Assistant manager, General Manager and my last position as Operations Director. At the end of my stint in Colorado I directly supervised two high volume franchise locations. I also worked for our corporate office in Denver assisting with new franchisee development and operations.
We opened The Pizza Peel in February 2009 and have been well supported by Lacon and many from the surrounding communities.
