A restaurant that has a long history with the Northland is making a return appearance to Hermantown.  Sammy's Pizza has announced their plans to open a full-service restaurant off of Central Entrance on Menard Drive - behind the McDonalds and Napa Auto Parts store.  The restaurant is aiming towards a March opening.

Sammy's Pizza operated a location in Hermantown a few years ago.  That location closed in 2017 when the lease ended.

According to sources, the new restaurant will be a full-service location - even including a daily lunch buffet.  In advance of the open date, the restaurant is holding a job fair  on Sunday, February 17 at their Woodland location:  4011 Woodland Avenue - between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM.

Sammy's Pizza got it's start with the Perrella family on the Iron Range in the 1950's.  The family-owned chain started with a small cafe in Keewatin, before a move in 1954 to Hibbing.  The Hibbing restaurant serves as the flagship to this day.  Sammy's Pizza is famous for their cracker-crust style of pizza, that is cut into squares instead of triangles.
