New pizza place to open near University of Dayton
Dayton Business Journal
A by-the-slice, New York-style pizza restaurant is opening near the University of Dayton
The new restaurant, Pi Pizzeria, is scheduled to open in mid-September.
Craig Hatfield, owner of Pi Pizzeria, said the concept he and his business partner — Johnny’s Pizzeria owner Johnny Riveria — are bringing to Brown Street is unique to the neighborhood.
“We’ll be selling by-the-slice. Nobody does that down there,” Hatfield said. “The sauce and the dough are going to be made fresh everyday.”
Pi Pizzeria, located at 1910 Brown St., will feature fresh, homemade pizzas, as well as baked sandwiches, strombolis, calzones, stuffed New York-style hot dogs and salads.
And since Pi is targeting college students, Hatfield is aiming for affordability. A slice will cost $2.50, two slices and a drink will cost $6, and a whole 18-inch pizza will be $15.99.
Hatfield has a three-year lease with an option for renewal for the 1,560-square-foot restaurant. There will be bistro-style seating on a patio outside the restaurant, and customers can watch employees toss dough from the front window.
The restaurant will employ seven people, three delivery drivers and four cooking up Italian classics.
Hatfield’s goal is to open a Pi Pizzeria near a university campus at a rate of one per quarter. He is targeting Wright State University
and Ohio State University
for his next locations.
Store hours for Pi Pizzeria will be 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to midnight on Sundays. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Call (937) 528-4427.
