Since opening in 2007, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company has worked hard to establish itself in Dallas— persevering through a recession, riding out neighborhood development and even changing its business model to embrace delivery. The little pizza shop’s drive has paid off, as Fortune magazine has just named GAPCo one of this year’s 100 fastest-growing inner city companies, as ranked by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City.

With an impressive five-year growth rate of 324%, GAPCo earned the #34 spot in the ranking. And they’re not done yet, as the company is opening a second location soon and hopes to open several more in the next few years.  

To be recognized by Fortune and the ICIC is such a major accomplishment for us,” said owner Sammy Mandell. “GAPCo began with the goal of providing pizzas to Lower Greenville, but over the years, we’ve been able to reach a larger customer base through delivery. And now we look forward to expanding our concept to more neighborhoods around the city, as we continue to grow and employ more of our neighbors.”

ICIC’s Inner City 100 is an annually compiled list featuring high-power, high-potential businesses from around the country with headquarters in inner cities. Ranked by revenue growth, each company is selected by ICIC with help from a national network of nominating partners who seek to identify, spotlight, and further enable innovative urban entrepreneurship. 

Greenville Avenue Pizza Company’s flagship store is located at 1923 Greenville Ave in Dallas, TX.

The second shop is coming to East Dallas later this fall and will open at the bustling corner of Garland Road and Peavy Road, serving lunch, dinner and late-night.
