Atlanta is in the midst of a $15.2 billion economic boom that has fueled an explosion in restaurants and other businesses, including Pizza Express.
Now the delivery service is expanding its delivery options to the area around the Atlanta International Airport, and plans to open its first delivery facility in Atlanta.
According to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the delivery company will open its next delivery facility at the former Pizza Express factory on the edge of downtown Atlanta.
The news comes as Atlanta’s economy continues to grow, with the state adding an additional 300,000 jobs since January.
Pizza Express is expected to start delivering pizzas by the end of this year, and will operate as a full-service pizza delivery service by the start of 2018.
In addition to Atlanta, Pizza Express plans to expand delivery to New Orleans and Philadelphia.
The company has opened a franchise office in Los Angeles, and the company plans to begin deliveries in Austin in 2018.
The pizza delivery company is also considering a larger location in New York, which will provide a better experience for customers and create more revenue.
