Eat (Then Shop) Til' You Drop &pizza at Tysons Corner

2017’s “Best Pizza in DC” Shows Love to Virginia This Summer with Brand’s Largest Outdoor Patio

&pizza, the Washington, DC-based counterculture brand known for its critically-acclaimed pizza and craft beverages, ampersand-tattooed employees (the Tribe), and fight for a living wage announces it will open in Tysons Corner late Summer 2017.

Tysons will be &pizza’s fifth shop in Virginia, adding to the brand’s growing footprint that includes the Springfield Mall and three airport locations (Reagan National and Dulles International Concourses B and C.)

Every new &pizza has something up its (tattooed) sleeve and looks to make a positive impact on the community. Guests can expect the Tyson’s shop to bring the brand’s signature approach of creative food, hyperlocal design, and charitable giving.

“Our shops are designed to bring people together and reflect the communities we serve,” said Michael Lastoria, co-founder and CEO of &pizza. “We’re excited to join the Tysons neighborhood and curate a truly unique experience no matter if you’re there for work or play.”

The shop will be located outside at Tysons Corner Mall next to Parking Garage A between Drybar + BGR, and will have plenty of seating thanks to interior seating for 46 and a fully built-out outdoor patio.

&pizza prides itself on serving up experiences in addition to fresh pizza. Guests have the opportunity to craft their own individual pie with unlimited ingredients or choose from eight signature pizzas with bold and unique flavor combinations such as the Maverick (meat lovers), the egg-topped Farmer’s Daughter (breakfast with a kick), and the Gnarlic (more than a white pie.) The brand works with Little Giants (local producers) to create innovative menu offerings that span a variety of food and beverage categories, including craft &SODA and small batch &TEA. &pizza is all about cleaner labels - using local produce and no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors - and variety with a full set of gluten-free and vegan offerings.

ABOUT &pizza:
Founded in 2012 in Washington, DC’s historic H Street, NE corridor, &pizza set out to create a different kind of pizza shop - one where experience is the focal point, and every shop reflects the culture and people of its neighborhood. Evidence of their disruptive success can be found in the organizational culture of its employees (the brand calls them Tribe Members), its rapid expansion and numerous recognitions. The brand was recently named Business Insider’s “Most Popular Pizza Chain” in Washington, DC and took home wins in 7 different “Best Of” categories by Washington City Paper - including “Best Pizza.” DC &pizza currently has 21 shops in Washington, DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia, and will open in New York City Summer 2017.
