Imo's Pizza is a U.S. chain of pizza restaurants based in the greater St. Louis, Missouri area. It is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri.[1]

History[edit]

The chain was founded by Ed and Margie Imo in St. Louis in 1964.[2]

As of November 2015, Imo's was ranked the 32nd largest pizza chain in the United States; the chain tallied gross sales of $93.8 million.[3] The company is based in St. Louis, Missouri.[4]

Concept[edit]

The chain is known for its version of St. Louis-style pizza, which is common in the area and features provel cheese—a combination of cheddar, Swiss, and provolone with a low melting point and gooey texture.[5] The restaurants also sell an assortment of salads, appetizers, and desserts. The chain joined in on the trend of selling desserts that can be made in a pizza oven.

Locations[edit]

While mostly found in the St. Louis area, the franchised pizzerias are also found scattered throughout select locations in the Midwest.

There are currently over 90 locations in Missouri, Illinois and Kansas.
