We went to Elkhart, Indiana to visit the founding father of Greg's Pizza, Greg Campanello's, original three Volcano Pizza stores. We also met with the Campanello family for Dinner two nights. Greg's grandson and his wife, Aaron and Aimee Schade, hosted both Dinners. Greg's son, Fritz, his wife, Michelle, his grandson, Aaron, and their family shared the history and photographs of Greg's. Fritz, current owner of Volcano Pizza, and the District Manager - Justin Eymer showed us their store operations.
We had a great time learning the history of Greg's Pizza. The Campanellos were great hosts! Thanks to all of you for a wonderful time in Elkhart. Thank you, Brad Fissel, for making this possible.

Greg’s Pizza has been a local favorite since 1963. Our unique pizza features toppings sure to please the local residents of Johnson City and Elizabethton, TN. We prepare each of our ingredients in our kitchen to ensure freshness, including our sauce, sausage, meatballs, and hamburger.
You can tell a Greg’s pizza from other pizzas because we put our toppings underneath a big mound of cheese. We also cut our pizza in strips, not slices. Plus, we’re home to the delicious “Volcano” pizza with everything on it.
If you want to branch out from pizza, we offer many other delicious menu items, including Italian subs, spaghetti, buffalo style wings, salads, and desserts.
Visit either our Johnson City or our Elizabethton location today. You can also call ahead, and we’ll have your pizza ready when you arrive.
Greg’s Pizza of Johnson City was founded by Greg Campanello of Elkhart, Indiana. Greg had worked for the original “Volcano Pizza” located in Elkhart before purchasing the business. After his purchase of the business, he added his name and it became known as “Greg’s Volcano Pizza”. To this day, there are still three Greg’s Volcano Pizza located in Elkhart, Indiana. In 1963, Greg opened up the his first pizza parlor in Johnson City on Broyles Drive which he simply named, “Greg’s Pizza”.
The name “Volcano Pizza”, which is still on the Greg’s Pizza boxes, is the original “Everything Pizza”.
Greg had a favorite pizza which had pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, mushroom and cheese toppings. This pizza he named after himself- “Greg’s Special” and gave it a special price point which is continued to this day.
In 1972, Greg opened the Elizabethton store. During the 1970’s and 80’s, Greg’s Pizza also had additional locations in Johnson City on Greenwood Drive and in Bristol on Volunteer Parkway. In 1992, Mike Cunningham bought both of the Tennessee locations of Greg’s Pizza from Greg Campanello. Mike operated the stores in Johnson City and Elizabethton up until 2012.
