Firing Up Pizza & Grill at the Crossing!

Pride . Perfection . Passion . Promise

That’s what makes us who we are today. The story of how Firing Up was created. Since a little boy, sitting on the counter building saladsby the hundreds, watching, wishing to get his hands on the dough to help make the balls for rising, stirring, chopping and measuring. To the teen years, every day after school,rushing to get to work to give his dad or uncle the afternoon off, responsibilities of a full staff, of a successful and long-standing tradition. Pride. To his adult years, growing, rising, building from the ground up, improving, creating, and Perfecting everything he learned as a child. Teaching, mentoring, guiding. Pride in what he’s built and helpingothers to do the same. Pride in hearing over and over from our loyal customers their praises, their thanks, their appreciation and their love of our food and clean establishment.Promise in knowing every ingredient that passes through Mike's hands, every order, every customer is what makes us do what we do every day with passion. With promisethat we love what we do, and we appreciate your kind words and support.

Originating in Gloucester in June 2000, Mike set out to bring everything he learned as a child through his teens and 20’s to his first location. Having outgrown the space andneeding to be closer to home, he sold that location to be able to spend more time with his growing family. He immediately began dreaming up and building out what is nowMike’s Beverly, a flagship location for that brand. Having spent many summers on the Cape with his family, decided Cape Cod needed a Mike’s to bring a North Shore favoriteto the other Cape of MA, where he knew many customers too, spent their summers. He quickly became a Cape Cod favorite, and now, Mike’s Roast Beef & Pizzeria of WestYarmouth is successfully owned and operated by a passionate husband and wife team, keeping Mike’s traditions of fresh, fast and favorite foods on the Cape. Fast forward ayear, an opportunity presented itself for our third location, Mike’s Pizzeria of Woburn. Another town favorite, built with the same traditions and passion as Mike’s of Beverly & W. Yarmouth. Mike’s in Woburn is now owned and operated by another husband and wife team who decided it was time to branch out and operate their own business. Anotherlocation, growth, passion, teaching, mentoring and guiding future business owners who show the same passion and love of what they do.And so, with Mike’s brand growing, and specializing in helping others find their passion, Mike felt the callingto return to Gloucester.
