Pan's Pizza has been family owned & operated by the Zolotas' since 1998. The namesake of the "Original Pizza Man," Pan Byron Zolotas (1941-2006,) Pan's Pizza truly is a legacy business. Anne Zolotas ran the joint for 22 years, from 1998-2020. From Spring 2020-2023, Alexander & Sani took the helm. Currently, Pan's is owned and operated by Justine Zolotas & her fiancé, Sani Pasagic.
Service to our local community is a cornerstone of our business and our family legacy. Anne Zolotas served as a volunteer on the South Hero Fire Department for over 10 years, and is currently a volunteer EMT for South hero and serves on the South Hero Select Board.
When the pandemic became our harsh and unprecedented reality in 2020, we created a pay-what-you-can model called "What Boat Are You In?" This allowed patrons experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 a choice of paying 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100% of their order. This honor system was utilized by the community with grace & honesty. It's still in effect today for anyone in need.
Through our Community Giving Nights, where 20% of sales are donated to a local community oriented charity/non-profit, we've been able to donate thousands to mission-based organizations like Camp Ta-Kum-Ta, CHAMP, CIDER, and Hunger Free Vermont.
