our story

owned and operated by much of the same faces for over the past 30 years!


Hello, My name is Polly, owner of PJ's Deli. I would like to give you a little history of how we came about. Surprisingly, the story is simple, I started working for The Bagel Place in 1976. A few years later in 1981 the Downtown Toledo location opened in the Madison Buiding, where I became manager. Nearly 7 years later in 1988 we moved to the Gardner Building which is where we are to this very day. In 2005 I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to become owner of the Downtown Toledo location. Not to worry though, we have all of the same great quality food that we have always been known for, just a new name. Furthermore, I would like to give all of the credit to my hardworking employees, most of whom have stuck with me in upwards of 20 and even 30 years. I could not have done all of this and be where we are today without them.
