Position Summary

Our Wisconsin story begins in 1962 in Medford, where two brothers, Ron and Joe Simek, started serving pizza to their patrons at the Tombstone Tap (so named because it faced the local cemetery). The pizzas were an instant success, and the brothers began freezing and selling them to local businesses out of their 1959 Cadillac. And thus, Tombstone Pizza was born. In 2010, we welcomed them into the Nestlé family, and ever since, Nestlé has deepened its ‘hometown’ roots in Wisconsin: from purchasing milk products from local dairy farmers to producing product for over 15 brands in facilities across the state.
