The history of Duane’s House of Pizza dates back to 1959. In June, 1959 Duane Schultz answered an ad for manager of a new pizza restaurant opening in Moorhead, MN called House of Pizza. Owner John Langhousen from Hibbing, MN hired Duane to be his manager of the new restaurant located at 310 Center Avenue in Moorhead. Duane ran the business for John until 1969 when he purchased the restaurant from John. He then changed the name from House of Pizza to Duane’s House of Pizza.
In May of 1975, Duane purchased a building at 1629 South University Drive in Fargo, ND. In June of 1975, Duane opened his second Fargo-Moorhead restaurant at that location. In June of 1983, Duane moved his Moorhead restaurant to 1024 Center Avenue.
In November of 1995, Duane died unexpectedly from a heart attack and the business was turned over to his wife Ann. Ann then sold the business in May of 1999 to their son ~ Steve Schultz.
In 2003 the Moorhead Store moved to its current location at 2223 Hwy. 10 East in Moorhead just 19 blocks from its original location.
Duane’s House of Pizza has been run by the same family for more than 50 years. Duane’s House of Pizza will continue to offer quality pizza made from only the best products available. We make our dough from scratch everyday at our stores. We grind our own Beef and Pork to provide the freshest ingredients possible. We mix our own sauce daily with our very own recipe. We are a family operated business so we understand how busy people can be and how they need to relax and experience a good meal. We strive to offer the best pizza you will ever eat, and take pride in our friendly and personal service. We thank you for giving us an opportunity to serve you and hope you enjoy your experience with us.
Sincerely, Steve Schultz
