Peace Love and Pizza Opens Brand New Restaurant in Marietta

Share Article

Peace Love and Pizza, the funky northern Atlanta pizza chain, is growing. The pizza chain adds a new East Cobb location to its family of restaurants.

Peace Love and Pizza, the much celebrated northern Atlanta pizza chain, recently opened a brand new restaurant in Marietta, GA. The new East Cobb location is the fifth member of the Peace Love and Pizza family, and has proudly been dubbed PLP 5 by owners Dave and Rich DeSantis. PLP 5 is located at 1050 East Piedmont Road #154 in Marietta, GA.

Peace Love and Pizza opened its first location in Kennesaw, GA in 2010. Four years and four locations later, it’s clear that Dave and Rich have figured something out. The DeSantis brothers don’t lack experience, however. They bring over 25 years of pizza making experience and according to them, “a lifetime of good times and a love of everything cool.”

Peace Love and Pizza is far from your run-of-the-mill pizza chain. The DeSantis brothers work hard to put their own unique spin on the pizza industry. PLP’s mission states, “To solve the problems of the world and serve excellent pizza.” PLP’s willingness to recognize the world outside of pizza is one of the main reasons it has been able to earn such a loyal and engaged fan base.

Dave DeSantis is keenly aware that the success of his growing business is largely because of PLP’s loyal customers. “Without all of our awesome customers believing in us and supporting our business, where would we be today? As a business, we always try to do the right thing, even when the wrong thing would likely be more profitable. We don’t care. That’s just the PLP way,” said DeSantis.

Another key development in PLP’s rapid expansion is the partnership that the DeSantis brothers formed with Joe and Dave Ardagna in 2012. Joe Ardagna, one of the original founders of Atlanta’s famous Taco Mac restaurants, stepped out of semi-retirement to team with the DeSantis brothers. The pair of brothers formed a dynamic partnership right away. Their similar backgrounds (all relocated from New England to the Atlanta area in the 1970s) and their shared excitement of the restaurant industry is largely the reason they were able to connect so quickly.

Peace Love and Pizza offers a distinct variety of made-to-order pizzas, gigantic sub sandwiches and an always fresh selection of salads. The DeSantis brothers have hand selected PLP’s assortment of toppings and ingredients from some of the most renowned food distributors in the world. Peace Love and Pizza also practices environmental stewardship by meticulously recycling all of its cardboard, aluminum and steel.

When asked what sets PLP apart from mainstream pizza chains, DeSantis said, “We’re not fancy, and definitely not conventional. We like to sing and joke and get to know our customers. We use the best ingredients and make delicious pies. We’re all about family, friends and community.”

Peace Love and Pizza’s East Cobb location (PLP) is now open for business. You can dine-in, carry-out or have your pizza delivered.
