Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom, a national casual dining restaurant known for its "handcrafted pizza and vast craft beer selection," announced Monday that it has opened its first location in the Chattanooga area at the Northgate Mall, 250 Northgate Mall Dr. The restaurant will create nearly 120 jobs for the area.
To celebrate the opening in Hixson, Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom has partnered with local charity, Chattanooga Area Food Bank. One dollar from every Chicago 7 and Meat Me specialty pizza ordered after 3 p.m. through Jan. 4 will be donated to the organization in support of the fight against hunger.
“The Chattanooga Area Food Bank has a long history of serving the greater Chattanooga area, as well as the region, and we’re proud to partner with them to raise funds to help end hunger in the community,” said Mike Mrlik, president of Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom. “We can’t think of a better way to celebrate our opening than to invest in the well-being of our newfound community. We look forward to introducing everyone in Hixson to our freshly, handcrafted pizza and diverse menu of world-class craft beers this month while helping out an incredible organization such as the Chattanooga Area Food Bank.”
Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom offers a menu ranging from shareable appetizers and fresh salads to taproom classics including burgers and pizzas. Old Chicago Hixson will feature a variety of Tennessee craft beers from breweries such as Chattanooga Brewing Company and Big River Brewing Company.
The 4,840-square-foot restaurant, including patio dining, also features 11 HD televisions for sports viewing along with 36 beer taps.
