Pizza Cult Coming to Philly
The popular and well liked (4.5 stars on Yelp) Washington D.C. pizza chain, &pizza lands in Philadelphia. The first area location and 17th for the chain is opening Thursday, October 13th at 1430 Walnut Street (on 15th Street under the Cheesecake Factory).
The quick-serve pizza spot (pronounced “and pizza”) will host a celebration in honor its first location outside of Washington D.C. with free pizza and tattoos.
That’s right– &pizza is offering tattoos of their logo, the ampersand, on their opening day. The first five guests to request this tattoo will receive it for free, along with free pizza for a full year. If you aren’t sure permanent ink for a year of free pizza is for you, you can still get a free pie if you are one of the first 215 guests to arrive–the number 215 being a nod to Philadelphia’s area code.
&pizza, though a chain, commits itself to each neighborhood it joins, so every shop reflects the neighborhood it is a part of. For this location, &pizza partnered with [BOX]WOOD, a local architecture firm, as well as local muralist and paper cutout artist, Joe Buruchow in designing a mural for the store.
In the days following the opening, Friday October 14th and Saturday October 15th, &pizza will donate one pizza for every pizza sold through their organization, &CHARITY. These will benefit either the Philadelphia Mural Arts Center or The Attic Youth Center, both local Philadelphia charities.
