The College Hill Partnership’s featured Business of the Month for September is Chad’s Pizza, located at 909 West 23rd Street. Originally started as a family restaurant in Dyersville, Chad’s has developed a solid reputation of also adding the students of UNI to their loyal client base since the opening of their Cedar Falls location. With deals such as $7 single-topping and $10 specialty pizzas when showing a valid student ID, free delivery to the dorms on Mondays, and rides home in the “Chadillac” on weekends from midnight-2am, franchise owner and UNI alum Alex Funke has gone above and beyond to keep hungry students happy. With new additions to the menu such as boneless wings (which are sold for 50 cents apiece on Thursday nights) and Mac & Cheese pizza, Chad’s is the perfect place for a hot slice, a cold beer, and an atmosphere where everyone can feel at home.

ABOUT COLLEGE HILL PARTNERSHIP
Since 2009, the CHP has brought together businesses, landlords, neighborhood residents, students, and the university to revitalize the College Hill neighborhood.
In just a few years, we have realized many improvements with the help of the city, including the new pedestrian-friendly streetscape with brick sidewalks, flower and tree plantings, and festive banners. To continue the improvements, we also now have a TIF (Tax Increment Finance) District in the Hill’s commercial area, which gives developers financial incentives, and will soon have in place a RID (Residential Improvement District), which gives residence owners (including landlords) tax breaks on major façade improvements.
The CHP provides support to the Hill’s best cultural traditions like the College Hill Arts Festival in July, the Neighborhood Picnic in August, and the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in December. We’ve also begun new events like the Hill Yes! Auction in April, and festivals in Pettersen Plaza. Other cultural events have also emerged to fit the distinctive culture of the Hill, such as Mohair Pear’s successful Pear Fair D.I.Y Craft and Design Event and their Zombie Walk.
If you have ideas for making College Hill a better place to live, work, and play, let us know. We appreciate your participation and support.
