Brooksville Honors Luigi’s Pizza 50th Anniversary
On December 21, 2020, the Brooksville City Council honored local restaurant, Luigi’s Pizza, in celebration of their 50th anniversary.
In 1970, Luigi’s was founded by Louis Hallal and Fred Kirshy. Brothers-in-law Louis and Fred moved to Brooksville in 1969 from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and Brooklyn, New York, with the idea of opening an Italian restaurant. During the long drive from New York to Florida, the business idea and concept of Luigi’s was born.
Three generations of Kirshy’s have operated the restaurant currently located at 750 S. Broad in Brooksville, including co-founder Fred Kirshy, his son, George Sr. and George’s children, George Jr. and Gregory.
The restaurant originally opened its doors on September 2, 1970, in the Hernando Plaza and then, in 1979, moved to its current location when the brothers purchased the new property.
