Partner Spotlights are our way to shine a light on some of our amazing local partners across the country and give them a platform to tell their unique story. Sebastien, the owner of Tom’s House of Pizza, wants to share his!
Tell us about your business:
We offer high-quality thin-crust pizza to Calgary and Okotoks. All our ingredients are prepared in-house in our commissary at our original location on Macleod Trail. This enables us to ensure consistency, quality and freshness. Further to that, all our food is baked in our brick-hearth ovens, so our clients know that their food has not been bathing in a vat of oil before it is served to them. Our recipes are all clean, so our customers can also rest assured that they are not eating filler at Tom’s; rather they are filling up on high-quality meats and fresh veggies! We also offer premium wines and locally-produced beers to go with that delicious pizza, so no one leaves Tom’s unhappy! We cater to everyone from families in our dining rooms to those looking for a fun night out in our pubs. By having two distinct rooms in our locations we make sure that everyone feels comfortable. We also offer delivery and take-out, but the casual in-house dining experience is really what Tom’s is about: a great night out with friends & family that will leave you smiling.
What is the one thing you would like people to know about your business?
We have been independently owned and operated since our inception in 1963 and have supported local since the beginning.
What made you want to get into business here?
It is a family business and I grew up in it, working from the bottom up since I was in school. It felt like a natural fit once I was out of university.
What’s your favourite part about owning or managing the business?
Although the restaurant business can be challenging and relentless in its demands on your time, it is one of the few businesses that allows you to form personal relationships with clients. It also provides you with quick gratification when you see you’ve made someone’s day with that perfect pizza!
What local business would you like to see on GetintheLoop?
Phil’s in Calgary – my favourite local breakfast spot!
Is there a community cause or event that you support that you would like to give a shoutout to?
We try to support many causes throughout the year, either with donations of food & time, or financial donations. One of the charities we’ve supported the most in our years at Tom’s is the War Amps Champs Program.

When you’re not working/running your business what is your favourite thing to do?
When I have some downtime I am a big reader, but if I have time to go out with friends & family I love going out to local breweries to find that next great beer that we can carry in our locations.
