For a couple that met in culinary school, and turned an old 6000 square feet Standard Auto Parts store in an undesirable part of town, into the Miami Valley’s #1 Pizza Place (according to yelp reviews), you’d expect something special to celebrate the success of their first year of business.
Oakwood’s Eric & Stephanie Soller have a big celebration planned for Old Scratch Pizza’s first birthday on Wed, Oct 18th. “We have been really overwhelmed by how generous our customers and the City of Dayton have been over the last year,” Soller said. “We really wanted to say thank you. And what better way to say thank you than free pizza.”

Old Scratch Pizza will also have the Trotwood trailer on hand with $3 Warped Wing beers, drink specials, door prizes and much more. According to Eric, “It’s probably going to get pretty crazy around here on Wednesday.”
OSP is located at 812 S Patterson Blvd and is open six days a week, closed on Monday.
