Dayton pizza businesses going strong more than 50 years later

After more than half of a century later, two iconic Dayton pizza businesses continue to thrive.

Cassano’s Pizza King and Marion's Piazza have been treating the Gem City to their one-of-a-kind tastes for decades.

Cassano’s was the first pizza shop in the Dayton area. It was founded in 1953 by Vic Cassano Sr. and his mother in law, Mom Donisi, according to our news partner Dayton Daily News.

Meanwhile, Marion’s Piazza opened its doors Aug. 19, 1965, when Marion Glass invested his life savings in the restaurant at 460 Patterson Road, also in Dayton.

And while times have changed, the ingredients, values, traditions and customer service of these two Dayton fixtures have remained constant since their early beginnings.
