Color History

Colors yesterday…

Our colorful history started in 1991 with the opening of Colors Pizza Café, a full-service family restaurant in Encinitas, California. Our pizza oven was a roasting oven with a stone deck and we soon realized we could not make our pizza fast enough. The solution was to par-bake our crusts ahead of time.
A hotel executive chef who was a customer of the restaurant loved our pizza and asked if we could make pizza crust for his room service operation. One order led to another, and before long we were doing more business selling pizza crusts to hotels than in our own restaurant.

Colors Gourmet Pizza

In 1994, we changed our name to Colors Gourmet Pizza and moved to a 3,500-square-foot production kitchen in Carlsbad, California. We continued making our pizza crusts by hand, the same artisan way we had learned in our restaurant.

We listened to the needs of our chef customers and introduced more sizes, styles, and shapes to satisfy the demand of our growing family of customers.

Today, the company focuses exclusively on the manufacture and distribution of quality handmade pizza products and, distribution of a variety of fine food products. Our customers range from family restaurants to some of the finest hotels, resorts, restaurants, casinos, schools, and theme parks.

Colors Today And Tomorrow

Colors relocated to a new, 15,000-square-foot facility in Vista, California, and is still a perfect blend of products created by old world artisans and modern technology.

The list of our out-of-state distributors continues to grow and Colors’ customers throughout a dozen states serve their patrons about 10,000 pizzas daily using our products.

Our aim is to continue growing at a speed that will permit us to continue placing our customers as our first priority.
As we enter our second decade, we are proud of the human size of our company. All our products are still mixed in small batches, and hand-made by people …not machines
