In 1964, while a student at Baylor University, Roland Duty got a job working at Pepe's Pizza in Waco, Texas. The business was owned by Col. E.M.Stinson. After several years the business sold to John Diebolt. While attending school part time, Mr.Duty purchased two of the Pepe's Pizza locations.
In 1969, Roland bought two locations: one at the Golden Triangle and one near Baylor University. On August 1,1969 Pepe's became Poppa Rollo's Pizza.
in 1979, the Golden Triangle Shopping Center was torn down to make way for business growth in the Valley Mills Drive area. We moved to our current location at 703 N. Valley Mills Drive in April, 1979. The business grew and in less than 10 years had more than tripled in size. We now occupy more than 11,000 square feet and can seat more than 500.
On August 1, 2010 we celebrated our 41st anniversary. We are blessed to have so many loyal and faithful customers, and we just want to continue to be the best we can be.
