Tazinos® Pizza & Salad Bistro began in 2007 when an Oak Creek, WI businessman shared his vision with some of his business peers and friends. Jim Purcell's vision was a restaurant concept offering customers a quick, casual, convenient, high-quality, better-for you, all-inclusive self-serve pizza, pasta and salad bar at a value-based price point for our customers.
The yet-to-be-named restaurant concept caught on with those he shared his vision with, and soon Purcell had assembled the core executive team that would work diligently side-by-side with him. By early 2008, the restaurant had a name, a design, a menu and a plan… the vision was coming to life! In October 2008, the first Tazinos® Pizza & Salad Bistro opened its doors in Oak Creek, WI to a public that anxiously awaited its arrival.
