A pizza pop-up will open a brick-and-mortar in Summerhill next year

A pop-up pizza delivery concept is the latest addition to the long list of restaurants opening in Summerhill.

Junior’s Pizza will open its first brick-and-mortar location on Georgia Avenue in May 2019, according to a press release.

Husband-and-wife team Alex and Jennifer Aton started the New York-style pizza business initially as a delivery pop-up.

The menu will offer a variety of items including a few specialty pizzas, salads and vegan pizza options. The restaurant is also one of the few in the area to use cup and char pepperoni, a New York-style, smaller pepperoni that curls up slightly when cooked in the oven. 

The space along Georgia Avenue will feature “simple interiors combined with eclectic pizza-themed murals and artwork from local artists,” according to the press release.

The restaurant will also serve beer and wine, and the restaurant will have indoor seating as well as an outdoor patio.

Junior’s is the latest announced tenant for the 80-acre mixed-use project in Summerhill, which is currently being redeveloped by Carter, in partnership with Oakwood Development and Healey Weatherholtz Properties.

Other food and beverage projects coming to the area include the recently-announced Little Bear from Eat Me Speak Me founder Jarrett Steiber, Conspiracy bar,  Wood’s Chapel BBQ from the team behind The General Muir, Hodgepodge Coffeehouse , Halfway Crooks Brewing and Blending, soft serve ice cream spot Big Softie and Little Tart Bakery. Another pop-up veteran, Talat Market, will also set up shop as brick-and-mortar in Summerhill next year
