We have been serving our thin style pizza for 25 years. Along the way we’ve moved a few times, started small, gotten bigger, then even bigger, until we’ve settled on this tiny spot in the Gulf Gate area. We love it here and hope you do as well!
To all of our customers who have stayed with us at Shaner’s since we first opened in Beneva Village, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And, to our new customers, I hope you enjoy our little restaurant and will spread the word. Again, I thank you for that.
It’s been great getting to know a lot of you loyal customers, and I truly enjoy answering any baseball questions, and anything you’d like to talk about. I especially enjoy chatting with the kids, and maybe doing a card trick or two for them. It makes my day more than theirs’.
On behalf of our staff I would like to say thank you, and enjoy your meal.
