Frank Panzone Jr and his wife Joyce opened Panzone’s Pizza in Beach Haven on May 13th 1980. They converted a small building on the corner of 11th St and the Boulevard from an ice cream store to a pizza shop. Patrons ordered their food through a takeout window. Panzone’s quickly became a popular spot for pizzas, huge steak sandwiches and hoagies. Generations later, they are still the favorite in Surf City and Beach Haven.
