SA is Months Away From Really, Really Hot Pizza



This summer, as we get ready to fire up fireworks for Fourth of July, Ashley Andres will fire up a seriously hot oven.

As franchise owner for the San Antonio Market, Andres will introduce 1,000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza to the area with the first store opening inside the former home of Fattboy Burgers & Fries on Huebner Road. According to Andres, the new location will feature a big patio, and showcase the prep that goes into making the pies. The menu will include pizza fired up in 120 seconds, chicken wings, dessert 'za, salads and a kids menu, along with wine and beer.

Andres' background is in marketing and development for IHOP and Lawry's Restaurants, and she's hoping to add three more locations within the next three years.

The New Jersey-based chain has 31 fast casual locations across the U.S. For now, the grand opening is slated for July 4 weekend with free 10-inch pies for one and all throughout the day.

11224 Huebner Road, Suite 206.
