About Donatos® Pizza

Donatos was founded in 1963, when Ohio State sophomore Jim Grote bought a small pizza shop in Columbus, Ohio from a young seminarian for $1,300. The company was classified "Best in Class" and acquired by McDonald's Corporation in 1999, at a time when the burger giant was buying small concepts. McDonald's sold the chain back to Grote and his daughter, Jane Grote Abell, in 2003. The creator of Edge to Edge® pizza, Donatos and its franchise partners operate 161 restaurants in 10 states, and its products are proudly served in more than 15 sports and entertainment venues.
