Mark Gibbs and Patty White are celebrating 10 years serving up your favorite pizza pie on Saturday May 21st. “We’d like to thank our community for the last 10 years of outstanding support for Pit Stop Pizza,” said Mark and Patty. They’ll be celebrating all day with discounts, giveaways and drawings.
Mark first came to Heber-Overgaard 1998 when he purchased a second home. “I’d been working in an Italian restaurant in the Valley, and decided to go into business for myself,” he shared.
Patty had moved to Heber-Overgaard to work for her cousin who owned Lori’s Tea Room which was located where the Woodshed is now. Patty had met Mark as he was running Pit Stop in the same plaza plus they discovered they lived just around the corner from each other. Hmmm…as their friendship grew, Patty and Mark soon became a couple. When Lori’s Tea Room closed six months after Patty moved here, she took over the management of Pit Stop.
Five years after opening Pit Stop, Mark and Patty decided to open the Woodshed Café which is a favorite breakfast and lunch destination.
Mark and Patty are generous supporters of the Rim Country Senior/Community Center and regularly provide lunch as one of their Restaurant Partners. They are donating appetizers for the Memorial Day Barn Dance which is a fundraiser for Meals On Wheels.
