Ledo Pizza Opens First “Corner Shoppe” Inside of a Giant Food Store (Maryland)

Ledo Pizza has just opened its first “Ledo Pizza Corner Shoppe” inside of a Giant Food store at 1649 Crofton Center in Crofton, MD (Anne Arundel County). The “Corner Shoppe”’offers take and bake pizza as well as hot pizzas from the oven. If the store is a success, more locations may pop up in Maryland and across the DMV.
Ledo Pizza started near The University of Maryland in 1955 with its first location on University Boulevard. Since 1955, Ledo Pizza has grown substantially from just one location to over one hundred locations throughout Maryland, D.C., Virginia, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Florida. Ledo Pizza is one of the pioneers of what we call “Maryland Style Pizza.
Per Ledo Pizza: You may have heard that Ledo Pizza “Never Cuts Corners,” and that has been true for over 60 years. Its famous, square pizza gives Ledo Pizza customers more pizza than the traditional round pizza. In 1955, Ledo Pizza decided to give families a fresh, enjoyable, and affordable pizza. Each pizza is made with fresh handmade dough, rolled to order, topped with high-quality smoked provolone cheese, and famously sweet Ledo tomato sauce. Ledo Pizza is famous for its thick sliced pepperoni, with its unique size, which is a result of the cooks cutting the pepperoni by hand in 1955. The thicker the slice, the faster the work was finished. The customers loved it so much that Ledo Pizza continues the thick slice today.
