$1,300. That's exactly what Jim Grote, a college sophomore at
The Ohio State University, put down to purchase his dream-a small
pizzeria on the south side of Columbus, Ohio. Little did he know that
his small investment would create one of the most respected pizza
chains in the industry-Donatos.
From the beginning, Jim built Donatos on three fundamentals:
creating a superior product, hiring great people,
and adhering to strong principles that promote
goodwill in business and the community. His philosophy was simple and
powerfully successful: “To make the
best pizza and treat others the way I would like to be treated.”
Today, Donatos has nearly 200
restaurants in 5 states and is growing fast. And that original pizza
shop on Thurman Avenue in Columbus, purchased back in 1963 is still
one of Donatos busiest, most successful locations.
