How It All Started

Wick's Pizza Parlor - Louisville, KyWick’s Pizza is a concept started over 28 years ago at the kitchen table of Michael Wickliffe’s mother. Meredith and Mike put all the money they had, and borrowed a little from their parents, to open a pizza place in the Highlands at the current location. 28 years later, they have three locations with hundreds of employees and they wouldn’t change a thing! 

Today, Michael and Meredith are as active as ever, helping maintain the friendly and comfortable atmosphere of Wick’s. While Mike is the high energy front-man of the company, Meredith’s impact behind the scenes is invaluable. They go out of their way to make every teammate and guest feel part of the family. It’s that approach that results in a place where great food, service and entertainment are king!  

Wick’s Pizza would like to say thanks to the best pizza clientele in the world for making Wick’s Pizza Best of Louisville for over 28 years.
