About Us

C.D. "Pat" Farnsworth opened Farnsworth's Cafe in Orono, Maine in July 1931. Pat's dream was backed by $175.00, long hours and hard work. Because of his efforts, Pat saw the cafe, which originally sold ice cream and confections, become a full service restaurant. In 1953 Pat added pizza to his menu. The fresh dough pizza, topped with a special sauce developed by Pat and his wife Fran, were an instant success. Pat's change in the menu transformed Farnsworth Cafe into Pat's Pizza. Over the years Pat's Pizza has become a favorite of University of Maine students. In fact, it has been said that an education at the University is not complete without a Pat's Pizza. Today, Pat's Pizza is enjoyed not only in Orono, but also in Augusta, Auburn,Yarmouth, Sanford, Scarborough, North Windham, Ellsworth, Lincoln, Hampden, Bethel, Presque Isle, Sanford, and our newest location in the Old Port of Portland Maine. All of Pat's Pizza Restaurants offer friendly, casual and affordable dining for the entire family.

 

Pat Farnsworth passed away on February 3, 2003 at the age of 90. His work ethic and philosophies live on in each location.

 

The Pat's Pizza franchise in Lincoln opened in April of 1991. The original owners were Bill and Carleen Jipson. Today their daughter, Lynette Krapf, operates the restaurant.
