&Pizza, a DC-Based Fast-Casual Pizza Chain is Opening in Center City

It's set to open by the end of this year


With seven locations in D.C. alone, plus five in Maryland and three more in Virginia, &Pizza is saturating the DC-area's fast-casual pizza market. So they're making the move up north, opening its first location above the Mason-Dixon line by the end of 2016 at the new-ish development at 15th and Walnut Streets (1430 Walnut Street, to be exact).

Midwood Investment and Development is signing &Pizza to fill in 2,375 sq.ft. of the property's 50,000 sq.ft. retail space, much of it already occupied by The Cheesecake Factory above, and down below, a Verizon Wireless store. The concept is pretty similar to any fast-casual operation: pick your base (in this case, your dough), your sauce/spread, your cheese, and your toppings. All pizzas are personal in both size and customizability. Drinks will include house-made sodas and teas. Some &Pizza locations serve wine and beer, but not Philly's — at least "not now," says an MSC rep.

MSC Retail, Midwood's exclusive retail representative, brokered the deal. There's still one space left on the lower level to be filled.
