Foxon Park and Pepe’s Pizza since 1925

Foxon Park Soda image

Foxon Park is a family business established in East Haven, CT in 1922 by Matteo Naclerio an Italian immigrant. The name Foxon Park was inspired by the name of the street he lived on at the time. Since that time, Foxon Park has been passed down through the generations and is still owned by the family today.

When Frank Pepe started his pizzeria in 1925, It was Foxon Park soda he offered and continues to serve guests. Today, Foxon Park makes 17 flavors of soda with the finest ingredients and is sweetened with pure cane sugar. Pepe’s does not carry all 17 flavors but we do carry some classic favorites. You will find on our menu:

Kola • Diet Kola • White Birch Beer • Diet White Birch Beer • Root Beer

Cream Soda • Orange • Ginger Ale • Gassosa (Classic Italian Lemon)

In 12oz bottles and 1-liter bottles.

So, how do you take your pizza?

And, When is your next visit to your favorite pizzeria?
