Boss’ Pizza & Chicken opened their downtown Fargo location this summer, although the city wasn’t entirely new to them. They brought with them years of success from their other locations in South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Nebraska, along with some fresh new ideas to offer to the community. We chatted with the man who started it all, and asked, what makes Boss’, a boss?
Originally opening in Sioux Falls, Boss’ has earned its reputation by having some of the best pizza and chicken in the midwest—so they decided to bring that to Fargo. While it is the first location in town, Owner and Founder Jeremy Seefeldt has ties to the city.
“Fargo is a town that is close to our heart. My wife is from Moorhead and her father actually owned a business in downtown Fargo roughly 30 years ago… We had big expectations for Fargo, and surprisingly, they’ve exceeded them in the first couple of months,” Jeremy said.
With local ties and a goal of bringing the best food in the game, Boss’ was sure to be a hit.
Open Late & Delivery
The original location in Sioux Falls, SD opened many years ago with a goal of changing the face of pizza delivery. Now, Fargo is following suit.
“We want to serve people when they’re hungry, not just when it’s convenient for us. This has been a part of what we do at all our locations since the day we opened,” Jeremy said.
You can eat Boss’ until 3:00 a.m. every night of the week, which includes dining in, to-go and delivery. And don’t worry about the distance, Boss’ delivers to North, South and West Fargo, the Horace area, Moorhead and Dilworth. That’s a lot of pizza miles! But well worth it to deliver Boss’ to the community.
Unfortunately, there are very few restaurants open and serving food after 10:00 p.m. in Fargo, especially within walking distance of downtown. Boss’ found this an opportunity.
“It’s not necessarily easy navigating the late-night bar crowd, either for delivery or dine-in, but that is the basics of running a business—find a need and fill it,” Jeremy said. “This is a need that most restaurants prefer not to fill. We’re happy to do it because our customers love us for it and it helps us be successful.”

If there’s one thing Fargo is great at, it’s entertainment. And now there’s another spot to hit next time you’re looking for something to do, paired with good food and drinks, too! Head to one of Boss’ comedy shows in the downstairs area, complete with their full food and drink menu!
Offering a comedy club inside Boss’ was an important goal for Jeremy, not only for business but for the community. Their location in Tea, SD has seen success from its comedy shows, again from both the business and people perspective.
“In Sioux Falls, and it seems to be in Fargo too, there’s a pretty good local group of comedians that like to do open mics. They like to get better at comedy, and a lot of them have dreams of maybe turning comedy into a career for themselves. They really work hard at it and want to make people laugh; and from a community standpoint, having the option to go see those people on a regular basis, I think is a big deal,” Jeremy said. “Comedy in general just adds a slice of life to the community, and I think it’s a good thing to have around.”
The private room downstairs can fit up to 80 people for the comedy shows and is available to rent for any event. There are multiple shows confirmed throughout the coming months, but keep an eye out for more shows to be announced at bosscomedypresents.wordpress.com!
Mark your calendars and get ready to laugh, check out these upcoming shows at Boss’!

Boss’ offers convenient and delicious food and drink, engaging entertainment options and connection and support to the community through athletics. As a way to stay connected locally, and as another great entertainment option, Boss’ has multiple tickers along its walls to stay up to date on local and national sporting events. At any given time, you can get an update on your favorite game or event going on from the tickers or from any of the TVs around the space!
The tickers are fed information by one of the employees about the local sports that matter to the people sitting in the restaurant, not just national sports that can be found on your feed. By letting Boss’ know ahead of time, you can get anything from your local softball league to your child’s T-Ball tournament stats read on the ticker. Jeremy says the younger groups especially love seeing their names up on the tickers while they’re celebrating a game with the team, and of course, their favorite pizza.
“I grew up in a small town and I know how important local sports are to everyone in the community,” Jeremy said. “I want the people that come to my restaurant to know the people whose names appear on the ticker— not just recognize the name, but see their friend’s son or their neighbor’s daughter’s name. It’s important to me because it’s important to my customers and important to the community.”
