The Story Behind the Logo
You may have noticed all our gear has our famous whale logo on it. Literary enthusiasts might recognize the reference to the great American Novel, “Moby Dick.” Pequod’s is named after the ship in that great story, where a whaling captain and his crew chase after the infamous white whale: Moby Dick. The original logo was just a whale, but its new form features a thong haphazardly tossed over the whale’s head and obscuring its right eye.
Those who read the book — and even those who only read the SparkNotes version — might observe astutely that there is no thong adorning the white whale Captain Ahab sought so mono-maniacally. But here at Pequod’s, you may have noticed we like to put our own spin on things. A unique crust deserves a unique whale. And, regardless of its adherence to the original story, it makes for a very cool logo.
The logo started with Pequod’s original owner, Burt Katz, the founder of our iconic crust. Burt started Pequod’s at our Morton Grove location back in 1971. He went on to sell the restaurant to its current owner, Keith Jackson. Keith, knowing Pequod’s to be the gem it was, kept many aspects of the great pizza spot the same, including the logo and the recipes. That’s why long-time Pequod’s lovers can still find the same delicious tastes and recognizable whale friend when they visit the restaurant, and its newer location in Lincoln Park, today.

The Benefits of Buying Merch

Connect With Other Pequod’s Enthusiasts
Wearing a Pequod’s hoodie or putting a whale sticker on your water bottle is a great conversation starter. At Pequods, we’re proud to serve Chicago’s best deep-dish pizza, and we have a lot of enthusiasts out there for our pizza and food. So many fans, in fact, that a lot of orders for our food come from our online nationwide shipping option. We’re no longer a well-kept Illinois secret, and there are lots of people out there who get pretty excited about our caramelized or burnt-cheese crusts and mouth-watering pizza toppings.

Support Our Local Business
Another reason? We’re a local business, and, even though things are slowly returning to normal, a lot of local establishments were hit hard by years of lockdowns and reduced indoor capacity. Of course, buying our food is a great way to support our business, but another great way is to invest in our merchandise. Not only does this show us you care about our success, but your support also allows us to keep serving the same delicious pizza you know and love for years to come.
Wearing our gear and sharing our name also helps get the word out about our pizza, bringing more people to our restaurants. Eventually, we want the whole city to be wearing their Pequod’s swag. So get the cool whale beanie, and become a local influencer for your very favorite hometown joint.
Invest in Quality Items
Investing in our merchandise doesn’t just help us, it helps you, too. We use only the highest-quality materials in our apparel items, keeping you both comfortable and stylish. With color options like black, navy, and gray, our T-shirts will be the ones you reach for in your closet every time.
