“In 1978, brothers Eugene and John Jetts opened their first store together in Sterling Heights, Michigan as Jetts Party Shoppe and Pizzeria,” according to a Jet’s press release. “The company has now grown to over 380 stores in 20 states. While Jet’s Detroit-style deep dish pizza made with Mama Jetts’ secret family recipe put them on the map, their salads, breads, Jetzees and variety of crust options are all among customers’ favorites as well.”
