The best stories in life have yummy endings

What happens when two old friends share a passion for pizza and hospitality?

Patxi’s (pronounced “Pah-Cheese”) began in the summer of 2004 in Palo Alto, CA, when a pizza lover and avid entrepreneur, Bill Freeman, partnered with an old friend and expert pizza maker, Francisco “Patxi” Azpiroz.

Today, nearly a decade and multiple locations later, the pair have turned their passion for fresh deep dish pizza and genuine hospitality into a signature experience that can only be summed up as “Patxi’s.”

Much more than just another pizza joint, Patxi’s embodies what your favorite neighborhood restaurant should be—a warm, welcoming place where you can share a delicious meal with friends and family and feel like you’ve belonged all along.

As we continue to grow and bring the Patxi’s experience to more communities across the country, we’ll stay true to our roots and never forget what makes each bite of our pizza so special. When you walk through our doors, you’re in for a treat. When you sit down at our table, you’re family.

Welcome home.
