Pizza is ubiquitous in American culture, thanks to its ability to double as doughy roulette wheels, pepperoni-covered fraction calculators, and plates for smaller-sized pizzas. But it works best as food, as today's Groupon proves: for $5, you get $10 worth of pizza and drinks at Blackjack Pizza. Owner Vince Schmuhl opened Blackjack Pizza with a commitment toward cheetah-fast service that refuses to trade quality for speed, taste, or Rickey Henderson’s rookie card.

After spending years working for Dominos Pizza, Vince Schmuhl decided that he could do a better job of preparing and delivering quality pies to people's homes. He challenged the nationwide chain's dominance in the region by founding the first Blackjack Pizza on June 29, 1983.
Although delivering oven-fresh pies within 30 minutes was still a major goal for Schmuhl, he emphasized the importance of quality ingredients using sauce made from freshly packed tomatoes as well as hand-tossed dough that never sees the inside of a freezer or cryogenic chamber. This dedication to quality and speedy service allowed Blackjack Pizza to not only survive, but also thrive over the decades. The chain now includes more than 40 stores operating in four different states.
In addition to offering seven signature pies, Blackjack Pizza also allows customers to build their own order from crust to toppings. A choice of up to four savory, tangy, and piquant sauces form the base, topped with any of the 3 available cheeses, 7 meats, and 10 freshly diced vegetables. Regardless of the toppings, Blackjack Pizza respects the potential danger of food allergies by ensuring that none of its pies ever contain traces of MSG, peanuts, or peanut oil.
