Snap Custom Pizza opens today at 11 a.m. at 1504 Sansom Street. It’s the third location for Snap and the first in Philadelphia proper. The other two locations from the Peace A Pizza founders are in Ardmore and Exton. This first Center City location is at the former home of Rob Wasserman’s 500° burger spot. Wasserman, who also owns Ritttenhouse Square’s Rouge is now a part of the Snap team.
Snap Custom Pizza takes the now familiar Chipotle-style assembly line and applies it to pizza. Customizable pizzas start at $7.49 and the menu also includes signature pizzas and salads.
Snap plans to rev up the expansion engine, looking to add 15 locations in the next 18 months.
