Since the 1970s, Woodall’s Quick Stop, at the intersection of Highways 35 and 79 in Scottsboro, has been a staple in the community.
Providing everything from gasoline to convenience items like soft drinks and snacks, Woodall’s has built a loyal customer base over the years.
One popular item at the store, especially at lunchtime, evenings and on weekends is the quick and cheesy Hunt Brothers Pizza.
Available by the slice or whole pie, customers can enjoy a variety of toppings or standard choices almost any time of day – even at breakfast.
“We serve a lot of pizza,” said Mary Talley, who has worked at Woodall’s for five years. “In the mornings, we have breakfast pizza which has sausage, bacon, eggs and cheese, and the customers really like it.
Starting at 11 a.m., the lunch crowd starts to roll in, and Talley gets busy making pizza by the slice, almost as fast as she can on most days.
“The Meatlover’s pizza is our most popular one,” she said. The pizzas come in a 12” standard size when ordered whole, or ¼ of a pizza by the slice.
“I sold seven of them by the slice in one day last week,” she said. “Our second most popular is the Supreme. It has all the toppings.”
Customers looking for a quick meal in the evenings love the pizza because besides tasting great, whole pies are ready in just seven minutes once they are started.
“Sometimes customers are in a hurry and need something hot and quick for dinner, so they call us and we get it ready for them,” Talley said. “To me, it is the best pizza around.”
There are ten toppings to choose from on original or thin crust, and the price is just $9.99 for a whole pie, and $8.99 for an additional one.
“Pizza by the slice is $2.99, or two for $5.49,” she said. “We can also add extra cheese for an additional $1.59 on a whole pizza.”
Hunt Brothers Pizza is an American food chain located in convenience stores, gas stations, country markets, sports arenas, and schools. It has more than 7,000 locations in 29 states.
According to Wikipedia, “Hunt Brothers was established in 1990 and is based in Nashville, Tennessee, although its roots go back to 1962 when four brothers from Evansville, Indiana – Don, Lonnie, Jim and Charlie Hunt – began a local wholesale food route named Pepe's Pizza, which distributed par-baked pizza crusts and other pizza items to restaurants, taverns, bowling alleys and drive-in theaters. The Hunt brothers grew up working in their father's restaurant.
The company stresses a culture of faith with a strong sense of giving back by helping families recover from natural disasters, working with churches and school groups, and offers an organized fundraising program to help their customers raise money for local organizations.
Hunt Brothers Pizza has built a strong presence in the NASCAR community, partnering with JR Motorsports, Kevin Harvick Incorporated, and Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014. The brand first became involved with NASCAR as a team partner in 2008, where the company sponsored Haas CNC Racing, the predecessor of Stewart-Haas Racing. Hunt Brothers Pizza aligned with Harvick in 2009.
“Hunt Brothers Pizza program was developed for convenience stores as food service destination within each store,” the site said. “The program has no franchise fees, royalty fees or advertising fees and offers marketing support to bring in a profit, a simple prepared consistent pizza as well as customizable point of sale presentations that complement the location.”
“I love it,” Talley said. “Our customers say it really is delicious. It’s always hot and fresh.”
Talley loves working at Woodall’s for many reasons.
“The customers all know me and I love them,” she said. “And Terry Woodall, the owner here, is great to work for. You couldn’t find better people than the ones you’ll find here.”
Woodall’s Quick Stop is open Monday – Thursday, 6 a.m. – 9 p.m., Friday – Saturday, 6 a.m. – 10 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
