Opening its doors for the first time in San Leandro, a small town on San Francisco Bay, Straw Hat began serving its trailblazing "Genuine California Pizza" on July 10, 1959. It was an unrivaled pizza with a layered, flaky crust, the freshest toppings, light sauce, and a blend of naturally aged cheese. Straw Hat's California creation was unlike any other pizza. It was crispier and tastier, and it satisfied a "Left Coast" appetite for fresher, lighter, and more unique offerings. Little did anyone realize at the time, but Straw Hat was on the cutting edge of a taste trend that would last for more than five decades to come.

There are many facts that separate Straw Hat's Pizzas from other pizza.

  • Our pizza sauce uses fresh packed tomatoes—never canned or reconstituted
  • only uses boxes and napkins made from 100% recycled materials manufactured without the use of bleaches
  • menu items are prepared using only premium grade meats
  • uses only 100% Chicken breast
  • rolls its pizza dough fresh daily
  • only uses cheeses free from fillers
  • Uses locally grown fresh produce sourced as close as possible to our locations

This is why a Straw Hat Pizza franchise opportunity is so desirable.
