Founded in 1976, Old Chicago operates in 22 states with 96 restaurants.
Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, a national casual dining restaurant known for its delicious, handcrafted pizza and vast craft beer selection, announced that it has opened its first location in the Chattanooga Area of Tenn., at the Northgate Mall (250 Northgate Mall Drive). The restaurant will create nearly 120 jobs for the area. To celebrate the opening in Hixson, Old Chicago Pizza & 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. this month through January 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 & 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.”
