Anthony Carron is the founder and chef of 800° Woodfired Kitchen. He got his start cooking at a local cafe during his time at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. Upon his return to his native St. Louis in 1999, Carron purchased the 40-year old Olivette Diner. After remodeling and re-inventing the aging diner to much acclaim, Carron sold the restaurant in 2001 to move to California and explore the world of fine dining. A sous chef position at AQUA eventually led to positions of increasing responsibility with the Michael Mina group, culminating in six years as Corporate Executive Chef. During his tenure in that role, Carron developed and opened more than a dozen high-profile and well-received restaurants throughout the country, while managing a portfolio of nearly 20 operating units. In 2010, Carron left Mina Group to found 800° — it originally launched on the West Coast in 2011 as a chef driven, fast-casual pizza concept, and consumers instantly fell in love. In 2018, in order to share his culinary talents outside of pizza, Carron and his team expanded the concept and re-branded as 800° Woodfired Kitchen, featuring a more diverse menu of wood-fired dishes, rotisserie meats, salads, sides, and of course, irresistible pizzas.
