History

From a 1961 store front pizzeria in Watertown, Wisconsin, Emil Koplin brought together the perfect combination of fine crusts, specially seasoned sauce, a blend of prepared cheeses along with the finest fresh toppings to create the culinary experience known as Emil’s Pizza.

Once the word got out, Emil was asked to produce a take-and-bake frozen pizza for the taverns, bowling alleys, and other establishments. This only fueled the demand for the local legend, and soon the Company moved a portion of the business to a production facility to produce the ever-popular frozen variety. Emil searched for the solution to preserving the fresh quality and integrity of his trademark product. Flash freezing was the answer, locking in the taste profile his customers grew to expect.

Emil soon had to decide to either expand his business or stay a small pizzeria. The choice was clear, the customer had spoken.

Retail stores were now asking to carry Emil’s Pizza, and the cat was out of the bag. The next 25 years brought consistent growth in product demand and the need for reliable production and distribution.

Emil’s quality is second to none using all local products to assure freshness. Cheese is purchased from Kraemer’s dairy in Watertown. We grind our cheese versus shredding, enabling the cheese to retain more butter fat and providing a more even melt which enhances the cheese flavor. To maintain food safety and quality, UW Madison formulated our precooked sausage to taste exactly like the fresh sausage we used in the restaurant.

In the last 10 years, Emil’s Pizza has expanded its sales and marketing to include expanded non-retail, a strong retail growth plan, fundraisers, programs and events, school lunch programs, wholesale distribution and e-commerce.
