Our Story

In 1983 Samuel Nalbandian (my father) opened Rising Sun Pizza in Northeast Philadelphia. I grew up learning all about the pizzeria and eventually took over to relieve my parents from the long hours. I quickly enjoyed bossing everyone around (just joking), and learned valuable lessons while running my father's business. In April 2018, I decided to take a chance, took what I learned and open up The Iron Oven!

I am very excited to serve my home area of Southampton. I have lived in Huntingdon Valley my whole life, graduated high school from Lower Moreland High School and also graduated college from Penn State Abington. I take pride in coming from this area and would not have wanted to start my journey anywhere but here.

The Iron Oven is all about quality, comfort and creating a wonderful night for every customer who walks through my door. I strive to offer made from scratch food, top of the line service and a warm comfortable environment. The Iron Oven was created on the idea of a great experience all around and I am pleased to finally realize this idea with all of you.

I know you will love your experience here at The Iron Oven and we look forward to serving you.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Alex Nalbandian
