Main Street Pizza Company 

Meet Elise and Jamie, owners of the amazing Main Street Pizza Company! If you’re wanting a delicious piece of pizza, some wings or just a cocktail, Main Street is the place to be.

How long has Main Street been in business?

10 years in January.

How old were you when you first got started in the restaurant business?

Elise was 15 and Jamie got into it when he met Elise.

What is a fun fact about Main Street?

They work hard at growing & sourcing local food served at the restaurant. What a lot of people don’t know is Elise and Jamie also own River Creek Farm, located in Limestone, Tennessee where they grow a lot of their food that they serve in the restaurant. They think it’s important to grow locally, to try and keep small scale vegetable farming alive. Another benefit to growing locally is that it makes the access to high quality food easier. To add to the fun fact list, Jamie served before becoming small business owner.

Why downtown Johnson City?

Both Elise and Jamie are ETSU graduates, they have a love for the area and they believe it’s about putting down roots where you live.

Favorite food/drink on the menu?

Food: spaghetti marinara with meatballs

Drink: six-four sour. What makes the drink so good is they make the blue curacao themselves.

Favorite thing to do downtown?

Walking around and catching up with other downtown owners. Seeing other friends that are musicians play at local venues and going to the Willow Tree to grab coffee.
