Welcome to the Gem, a family-owned business since 1975, the year Emil and Helen Pearce purchased what was then known as South Seaville Market. The market carried a full line of grocery and deli items and operated a gas station. Over time, the business doubled in size, added table service, and expanded the sandwich line.


In 1987, the South Seaville Market reopened as the Gem Grocery and Gas. Now owned and operated by sons Kyle and Adam Pearce, food service took on a greater focus and the Gem introduced cheesesteaks, burgers, and fries. Loyal employees and customers welcomed the ever expanding grill menu.


Additional expansion in 2005 introduced our Pizzeria run by Sean Collins and a much needed full delivery service. The ever expanding breakfast, lunch and dinner menu prompted the evolution of yet our newest name, GEM GRILL & PIZZERIA.
