Congratulations to Benny’s Pizza on being chosen for January 2014 Co-Business of the Month. Benny’s Pizza is a full service restaurant with dine in, pick up, or delivery, located on the corner of 15th and State Street in Beardstown.
Benny’s prides themselves in making authentic Italian food with the dough and sauces made fresh daily and the recipes passed down from generation to generation.
Benny’s is a tradition in the Beardstown area. If you have moved away and come home to visit it is certain that one of the things on your to do list is to order a Benny’s Pizza.
Benny’s Pizza was opened on July 4, 1970, when Benny came to the United States from Cinisi, Sicily (outside of Palermo) in 1969 to open the restaurant. He chose Beardstown in part because there were no other pizza places in the area.
Three years later he married his wife Kathy and raised his three children here becoming an important part of this community. In 2001 Benny passed the business to his son Antonio, and his wife Katie joined him a few years later. Three years ago, Benny’s daughter Rosalinda and her husband Domenico joined Antonio and Katie in business. Benny’s Pizza is still run by this family in the traditions started nearly 44 years ago by their father. Thanks Benny.
