        Naming the Business
        Rex Hollis named the restaurant after his friend, Jim "Peanut" Davenport, who was a professional baseball player with the San Francisco Giants. They grew up together in Siluria, AL. The Giants had just come off of the losing end of an attempt at the 1962 World Series, so Davenport was a familiar name in the area when Jim Davenport's Pizza Palace opened in 1964.
        Getting Started
        Getting the business started was no easy task. Rex and Ardyce Hollis lived right across the street from the restaurant on Brook Manor Drive in Mountain Brook Village, and they both worked 90 hour weeks to get the store off the ground. Rex would walk pizza from the restaurant to the neighboring houses to introduce folks to this unfamiliar food. Fortunately, the community took a liking to pizza pretty quickly, and the rest is history.
        Where We Are Now
        The business remains in the same family and has celebrated over 50 years in the Mountain Brook Village community. To this day, we still only offer pizza and salad, but the key is that we do one thing, and we do it well. We also recognize the fact that without our loyal generations of customers, we would cease to exist. We thank our customers for their continued support! Here's to another 50 years and to our new location opening in the Vestavia City Center in 2022!
