Doug & Kelly Craig | DOugie John’s Pizza

A native of the Clyde/Fremont area, Doug worked in a pizza place in high school. He loved it so much that he joked that he should open his own, and call it “Dougie John’s.” After all, his full name is Douglas John Craig.

Our Roots

In 2011, the “Dougie John’s Pizza” dream became a reality when Doug opened a food-truck in Old Fort, Ohio. He continued his day job of selling fire protection supplies, but the truck gave him a chance to enjoy his beloved pastime - making seriously delicious pizza.

Just the Beginning

Dougie John’s Pizza opened its doors as Findlay’s only car-side pizzeria in November 2017, with an official Grand Opening celebration on January 2nd, 2018. 

The current location at 106 S. Main Street in Findlay is the first brick-and-mortar storefront. Doug has high hopes that there will be more. If you look at the Dougie John’s logo, there are 8 pepperonis on it - eventually we hope to have a total of 8 locations within 10 years.
