Johnny's began in Syracuse, New York, where founder Bruce Jackson, who'd worked for a local pizzeria, opened his first unit with his boss's son near the Syracuse University campus. He and a new partner, Scott Allen, later moved to Atlanta where they put a pizza box with the handwritten word "Open" in the window because they couldn't afford a sign. Today, with 53 stores, they plan to develop newer markets in Memphis and Dallas plus more in Charlotte and Greensboro, North Carolina, and Greenville, South Carolina.
