About Relic, Inc.
As a community-based, family-owned and operated business- we take great pride in our dedication to serving both our customers and our community. Ever since 1984 when Bob Willey opened our very first Pizza Plus location (now Gold Dust Pizza Ripon), we have been expanding and offering delicious food to more people throughout California.
In 1984, Bob Willey moved to Ripon and knew that it was the perfect location for his first pizza parlor. The Jewel of the Valley would become home to Pizza Plus, thus beginning what would become the Willey family business. After marrying his wife Monica in 1999, the duo grew their business together and created Relic, Inc. They would also grow their family, having three children who all play major roles in Relic, Inc. today. Bob, Monica, and their children Katie, Jeremiah, and Hannah would all work together to eventually expand the family business.
2011 marked the year of expansion when we opened up our second pizza location in Sutter Creek. Gold Dust Pizza would prove to be a huge success, leading us to open two more locations in 2015 and 2017 in Oakdale and Copperopolis respectively. Our family’s success is not just due to our hard work and dedication, but also the hard work and dedication of our staff! We give young highschool aged kids the chance to work and serve their community while they study and go on to be doctors, dentists, and everything in between. It is because of our staff and continued commitment to the community that we support local school programs, sporting events, and represent local high schools throughout Stanislaus, San Joaquin County, Amador County, and Calaveras County
Most recently in 2020, we opened up our very first Ice Cream Emporium in Ripon, CA! Located right down the street from Gold Dust Pizza Ripon, our Ice Cream Emporium takes you back to centuries ago where countertops gleamed with old-fashioned candies, everyone greeted one another with a friendly “Hello!”, and where family time was the most important time. Stop in today for gourmet ice cream with flair!
