99c Fresh Pizza opened on Tuesday selling pies and slices at discount prices.
The pizzeria, located at 41-10 49th Street, is selling 18 inch pies for $8.00 ($2.00 extra per topping) and a slice for 99 cents (plus 50 cents per topping). It offers free delivery (718-507-9099).
“This [pizzeria] is the first of about 20 that we’re looking to open in Queens over next 2-3 years,” said Steve Nelson, one of three owners. The next step is to open another pizzeria in Sunnyside–on the south side of Queens Blvd—with others in Woodside, Long Island City and Elmhurst.
Joe O’Sullivan, a Sunnyside resident and a co-owner, selected the 49th Street vacant store, and believes its located in a busy section of the neighborhood.
Nelson said the three owners bought the license to operate under the name from Brian Harley who owns the brand.
99c Fresh Pizza has built a name for itself in Manhattan, where it has established eight locations.
