Richard Williams and John Jefferson


Luna Pizza Cafe was founded by co-owners Richard Williams and John Jefferson. After learning to make Neapolitan pizza at the Bivero Pizza Academy in Italy, Richard retired from academia and partnered with John, an experienced restaurant professional. John then attended Bivero Pizza Academy, and the two opened Luna Pizza Cafe in Greenville, NC in January, 2018.

The duo came together to open their flagship store in Greenville, NC, out of what once was an old Coca-Cola bottling plant. With a focus on authenticity, sophistication, and fun, Luna Pizza goes the extra mile with their pizza— from sourcing many ingredients locally to crafting their dough from scratch through a five-day fermentation process, guests can enjoy some of the highest quality Neapolitan pizza in North Carolina. At Old North State Food Hall, the Luna Pizza team will offer their highly acclaimed pizza, as well as other delicious appetizers, salads, and desserts.
