Colorado Springs, CO
A Little History
The first Leon Gessi's was opened in 1974 by George Valdez. The inspiration for the namesake of his pizzeria came from a French writer who wrote poems about pizza. The pizzeria he opened in 1978 at Union and Palmer Park still remains operating after 30 years. This location is conveniently located two miles north of the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Baseball, soccer, basketball, hockey, football, golf and track teams alike all enjoy using Leon Gessi's as a great place to meet and socialize. Romantically enough, Leon Gessi's New York Pizza has also been known to be the site for a few marriage proposals. And let's not forget Hall of Fame pitcher, Goose Gossage, has also stopped by for his "fix" of New York pizza.
The cornerstone of the Leon Gessi business philosophy is to bring to the restaurant business a well-designed operation, providing excellent food, clean surroundings and a family environment at reasonable prices for people on the go. When Leon Gessi puts its name on something it signifies to the customers and the employees that they are going to experience the very best our restaurant has to offer, every time.
