Located on the Lower Ground Floor, Mountain Wing, SM Seaside City Cebu, SRP, Cebu City, Cebu Shakey’s is the pizza that started it all.
Founded by Sherwood “Shakey” Johnson, the first Shakey’s Pizza Parlor opened in 1954 on 57th and J Street in Sacramento, California. Located in a remodeled grocery store, the original Shakey’s Pizza restaurant was established as “Ye Public House” for pizza and beer. In fact, as the pizza ovens weren’t ready on the first day, beer was the first menu item served at Shakey’s. It wasn’t long though before the ovens were fired up and baking what came to be known as the World’s Greatest Pizza.
Fun and good times have always been part of Shakey’s recipe for success. Sherwood Johnson brought his love of Dixieland jazz to Shakey’s in the form of live ragtime music. Jazz historians even credit the inclusion of player pianos, banjos and other live jazz musicians as having played a role in the Sacramento jazz revival. Johnson himself is honored in the American Banjo Museum in Oklahoma City for promoting banjo music at Shakey’s Pizza Parlors.
