A Part of Metro Detroit Since 1937 Shield’s has been part of Metro Detroit’s history since 1937. Our story began when Shield’s Bar opened at the corner of Davison and Shields Street in Detroit. Shield’s later began serving award-winning pizzas and salads and featured the ever-popular square, deep-dish pizza. Shield’s quickly became a landmark and a favorite gathering spot for families, politicians, athletes and public figures alike- and established a tradition of offering high quality foods at reasonable prices.
Shield’s was purchased in early 1992 by brothers Paul Andoni and Peter Andoni. The Andoni’s changed the name to Shield’s Franchise Restaurants, LLC and plan on expanding to new locations and offering franchises throughout Southeast Michigan and beyond. The company currently has 120 dedicated employees and locations in Southfield, Troy and Macomb Township. Today Shield’s is improving and expanding to serve more customers better than ever before!.
