Tim and Brad are from Southern Illinois. They are very proud of their heritage. They went to Southern Illinois schools. They even attend Southern Illinois University. It was very important to both of them that they finalized thedream for a restaurant in the same place that their first dream came true, the whiffleball field. Whiffleboy's Pizza is 100% local. All of the pizza profits stay in the community. No franchise fees are going to other states and other communities.
