Pizzeria Locale is headed to Kansas City. The fast-casual pizza chain, a partnership between restaurateurs Bobby Stuckey of Frasca Food and Wine and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson and Chipotle Mexican Grill, will open its third restaurant, the first outside of Denver, at 505 West 75th Street in Kansas City on Wednesday, July 22.
The original Pizzeria Locale in Boulder opened in 2011 with inspiration from traditional pizzerias in Naples, Italy. There is another location on South Broadway, too.
"Pizzeria Locale joins ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen as an additional concept that provides future growth opportunities for Chipotle," said a press release about the expansion. "Chipotle currently operates 10 ShopHouse restaurants in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles with additional restaurants opening in the coming months... Stuckey and Mackinnon-Patterson's other ventures, Frasca Food and Wine and the original Pizzeria Locale in Boulder, Colo., are not part of this partnership and are not affiliated in any way with Chipotle."
