From its famous cups to its appearance as the nation’s best college hang out spot on the television show “Good Morning America”, Columbia’s Shakespeare’s Pizza is no stranger to fame. Founded in 1973, this local pizza joint has slowly but surely become one of the landmark food spots of the city for locals and visitors alike.
Shakespeare’s employee Kayla Miller was referred to an open position at the restaurant by a professor five years ago and has worked there ever since.
“I love it here,” Miller said. “We all hang out together. It’s like a family.”
Miller said her favorite part about working at Shakespeare’s is meeting all the interesting people that come in to eat at the restaurant. In a city granted the nickname “Athens of the Midwest”, Shakespeare’s is sure to continue its path in adding a little flavor to the local culture of Columbia.
