bourbon street pizza in Culver Indiana.

Bourbon Street Pizza

The origin of Bourbon Street Pizza can be traced back to an earlier time when the company’s founder, Tim Harman, opened his first pizzeria in Argos, Indiana. It was here where Mr. Harman experimented, tested, developed many of the recipes and much of the menu that led to the opening of Bourbon Street Pizza on July 6, 2006 in the town it was named after – Bourbon, Indiana. Since it’s opening, Bourbon Street Pizza has continued to perfect its product line and services to include carry-out, dine-in, delivery and on-line ordering and has expanded it’s operation to six locations in northern Indiana
