Vancouver Pizza Celebrates 10th Anniversary with Ribbon Cutting

(VANCOUVER, Wash.) — Vancouver Pizza, an Uptown Village mainstay, is celebrating its 10th anniversary under current ownership with a ribbon cutting and discounts and specials from September 28 to October 2.


The restaurant, owned by Cliff and Karen McMillen, is located at 2219 Main St. in Vancouver’s Uptown Village neighborhood.

Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt will be kicking off the celebration on Thursday, Sept 30, at 4:30 p.m., with an event and ribbon cutting in conjunction with the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce. The event itself will be held from 4-5:30 p.m. To culminate the anniversary week, the festivities on Saturday, October 2, will include pizza specials, a “Spin-the-Pizza-Wheel,” face painting, live music and McGruff the Crime Dog.


“On this special occasion, we celebrate our loyal guests, wonderful community, our dedicated staff, and our quality vendors for their continuing support as partners in our growth,” said Cliff McMillen. 


Ten years ago, Cliff and Karen McMillen purchased the restaurant and worked hard to transform it into the friendly neighborhood gathering place it is today.  Over the years a strong relationship with its downtown neighbors and community has grown and flourished.  Today, loyal customers continue to enjoy the friendly atmosphere as well as the wide range of pizza, salads, beer and gluten-free choices.


“Our desire, when we purchased Vancouver Pizza, was to continue the original owner’s desire to build relationships with everyone who comes through our doors,” said Karen McMillen.  “Our commitment to consistency in our food, dedication to first-rate service, and support of the community has helped those relationships grow into friendships and our business to continue over the years. We look forward to many more years of serving our community.”
