&pizza To Bring Its Fresh Take to Adams Morgan Summer 2017

The District’s best pizza makes a “Jumbo” move with 12th DC shop location

&pizza, the Washington, DC-based counter culture 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 Adams Morgan late this Summer.

Adams Morgan will be &pizza’s 12th shop in DC and 24th shop in the nation. Located at 2465 18th Street, NW, the newest shop is destined to become the area’s official pit stop for crowds in search of a fast lunch or a fill-up after last call at the bar.

Guests can expect the Adams Morgan shop to bring the brand’s signature experience with twists like new Hit pies and drinks, faster ways for guests to get their pies, and curated in-shop events.

“Adams Morgan is synonymous with culture, crazy nights, and craveable pizza so it was never a question IF we were going to open a shop there - it was just a matter of when,” said Michael Lastoria, co-founder and CEO of &pizza. “The Jumbo Slice is infamous, but we’re excited to give guests a truly custom way to keep the party going.”

Staying true to &pizza’s hyperlocal design philosophy, the history of this culturally diverse neighborhood will serve as the inspiration for many of the design elements guests will experience in-shop. The construction signage from local artist monolith that currently covers the space is intended to represent unity, inclusion and connectedness - just like the brand’s iconic ampersand logo.

2465 18th Street, NW, Washington, DC
Sunday through Wednesday, 11 AM - 11 PM
Thursday, 11 AM - 12 AM
Friday and Saturday, 11 AM - 4 AM

&pizza is known for its unique, oblong-shaped pizzas that are made with high quality ingredients and bake in under 2 minutes.

The brand partners with local suppliers called “Little Giants” to collaborate on innovative menu offerings that span a variety of food and beverage categories, including their signature craft fountain &SODA and small batch &TEA.

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.
