How It All Started
The story of Wick’s Pizza started in the late 80’s. Although the menu of Wick’s was developed at the kitchen table of his parents, the beliefs, philosophy and work ethic were developed during Michael’s years in the restaurant industry. Follow us through the evolution of Wick’s Pizza.
1990 – Michael entered the pizza business with a loan from a friend and a management position. He would learn the ups and downs of the business “on the job”.
1991 – Michael decided to go out on his own. He opened the 1st Wick’s Pizza in the Plainview Shopping Center in eastern Louisville.
1993 – Meredith and Michael relocated the restaurant to a prime location in the Highlands on Baxter Avenue (it’s current location).
1994 – Wick’s Pizza took off and never looked back! Healthy sales helped the Wickliffe’s open Wick’s Pub next to the restaurant.
1998 – Growing popularity prompted the Wickliffe’s to open the Goose Creek location in eastern Louisville.
1999 – Desperate for more room to grow, the Baxter Avenue location expanded to the neighboring building – taking over the entire block!

2004 – The Wickliffe’s opened their largest restaurant ever: an 11,200 sq. ft. building in the Valley Station area of Dixie Highway!
2009 – Wick's expands to Indiana with it's 5th location opening in New Albany on State Street.
