“Totally groovy pizza man”
and Chuck Woodstock, along with his partner, Mike Chew, traveled the state of California in search of an ideal college town to locate a Woodstock’s Pizza Parlor. With a successful current restaurant in Corvallis, Oregon (near Oregon State), they were ready to find a similar situation in California. They drove to Chico, took a look around the town and campus, and knew they’d found just what they wanted. In fact, they were so excited about the location that Chuck bought the building right across the street from Chico State and named it Woodstock Plaza. Woodstock’s Pizza opened in Chico in August of 1983. Chuck and Chew had a simple formula -- to create a fun, student-oriented atmosphere, and to offer classic pizzas that surpassed anything they’d tried elsewhere. One of Chuck’s innovations was to put sauce in the folded-over crust. He also insisted on putting more toppings on the pizza than any of his competitors did. Ideally, you should get a taste of every topping in each bite of a Woodstock’s pizza. Woodstock’s quickly became an institution in Chico. Some of us remember the days when Chew would walk around town with his huge black dog, Woolly Bears. She wore a coat emblazoned with “I Eat Exclusively at Woodstock’s!” Sadly, Chuck and Chew passed away in a private plane accident in 1985, but their legacy continues at Woodstock’s.
My work orders here a lot. Don't suggest catering from them. Their salad is atrocious and the last time we got them I was on the toilet for two days.
