Local, award-winning pizzeria to host official ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 28 and fundraiser for the Yellow House Foundation on March 30
Austin, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Via 313 fans in Cedar Park will soon be able to enjoy their favorite genuine Detroit-style pizza in their neighborhood when the award-winning concept opens in the 1890 Ranch shopping center on Monday, March 28!
Located at 1335 E. Whitestone Blvd. Ste. 200, the new pizzeria will celebrate its grand opening with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Cedar Park Chamber of Commerce at 10:30 a.m. Then, Via 313 will begin serving its mouthwatering “square” pizzas to the public!
Via 313 will quickly carve out a slice in the Cedar Park community by supporting the Yellow House Foundation, which provides a safe place for individuals and their families in Williamson County and surrounding areas as they recover from alcohol and substance abuse. On Wednesday, March 30, the locally owned and operated restaurant will donate 50% of its sales from the day to the nonprofit. Via 313 will also encourage guests to donate on their own through URL codes placed on their tables.
“My brother and I have long wanted to bring Via 313 to the people of Cedar Park,” said Co-Founder Zane Hunt. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally be able to do just that. For the past 10 years, we’ve been fortunate to develop such a loyal following throughout Austin, and we’re so proud to expand and serve more pizza lovers in the surrounding areas. We look forward to welcoming everyone in as we celebrate our grand opening … it’s been such a long time coming. We can’t wait to see you all!”
When Via 313 makes its Cedar Park debut, it’ll serve the brand’s renowned Detroit-style pizzas that feature pillowy crust, premium ingredients and fresh sauce laid on after the bake. In addition to offering vegan and vegetarian options, guests can substitute gluten-free crust or dairy-free cheese on their pizza of choice. The 3,300-square-foot restaurant will have an expansive patio and a dedicated to-go area for guests to conveniently take home their delicious pizzas.
Cedar Park’s first Via 313 will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. This opening marks the sixth Via 313 in the Austin area and seventh systemwide.
Via 313 exists so more people around the country can enjoy the pizza that’s beloved in Detroit. The pizzas are called square, but they’re actually rectangle and baked in metal trays, just like the ones used on the automotive assembly lines at the Big Three. But instead of being filled with metal parts, Via 313’s trays are filled with the finest pizza ingredients it can source. To learn more about Via 313 or to view the full menu, visit via313.com.
