I had never even heard of Straw Hat Pizza until I lived in California and I only got to eat there once. I thought it was a fairly new chain, but after checking out their website, I found that they had been around since the 1950s. In the 1970s they unleashed their Hot Hat Stuffed sandwiches upon the world and as you can see in this commercial, it was quite an event.
Sadly they no longer dress like this at Straw Hat Pizza (not a straw hat to be seen), if they did, they would rocket to the top of my list of favorite pizza places.
