WHO WE ARE:
Table 87 Frozen is a national pioneer in the field of frozen pizza and a leading producer of gourmet frozen pizza. The company provides its retail, restaurant, and institutional customers with frozen pizza manufactured under the highest standards of food safety and environmental sustainability. Table 87 operates one manufacturing facility in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
We are down to earth people, with big dreams, set goals, and our team is hard working, supportive, and passionate about offering the highest quality frozen pizza in the marketplace. We work to create an environment that is caring, fun, and collaborative.
No place in the world is more famous for great pizza than New York City, and to be more specific, Brooklyn, NY. Family owned & operated since 2012, Table 87 was crowned “The Home Of The Coal Oven Slice” when we opened our first slice shop in Brooklyn Heights. Since it was nearly impossible to buy a single slice from a coal oven pie in Brooklyn, Founder and Owner, Thomas Cucco changed all that.
Table 87 now owns and operates three brick and mortar shops in Brooklyn, NY; all serving fresh coal oven pizza, by the slice!
Making it easy for people to enjoy their favorite pizza made us kinda’ famous. In 2014, we developed a way to offer the perfect, coal oven frozen pizza. Table 87 Frozen pizza goes from freezer to plate in minutes, whenever you want an authentic Brooklyn coal fired pizza pie. Our fully cooked frozen pies have been featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, and can be found in many local and national supermarkets, and online.
Doing it right is the trick. At Table 87, we’ve perfected the coal oven pizza, and we figured out a way to share it with the world.
We thank all applicants in advance for their interest in this position, however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
