I started working in the pizza business in 1995 at D.J.s Pizza in Lowerlake. I worked there for Donald Fehr for eight years, learning all there was to know about the pizza business.
In 2001 Don offered me the opportunity to purchase one of his locations in a few years (2003). I could not pass this opportunity up. I was a little scared to go off into the business world but said yes.
I named the business Pogo's Pizza because Don had always written my checks out to me as P.Ogo, So there she was born, POGOS
My husband Pete, was a Butcher at Rays Food Place for over ten years. There is where he learned the best cuts and types of meat there are. This is why we use the best meats on our pies. Our sausage is locally blended at Bruno's. Only the Best at Pogo's. Finally, 2003 came, and we soared off on our own, adding and creating really good food to add to our menu. We are family-owned and operated, with our grown children & Grandchildren following alongside us to learn and grow with us. Our food is made with love. We are very proud to serve our community and love that our community thinks of us. Thank You.
We had a goal to open another location in 3 years in Clearlake. We opened our second location in 2006 in Clearlake.
In March 2014, we moved our Clearlake location to the town of Kelseyville on Main Street.
In July 2017, we sold POGOS # 2 to our son and daughter-in-law, Pete and Angela Ogo. They both had work in the family business for 13 + years. It was time to let them soar off and run part of the family's business. We are proud to have him continue and wish them the BEST!
