The first NYC pizza hut is set to open in the Brooklyn borough of New York on January 1st, 2018.
The company is already working with the New York City Department of Transportation to help develop a plan to move the restaurant to the boroughs outskirts of Manhattan and Brooklyn, according to the NY Post.
The location will serve the popular New York pizzas in a converted warehouse in the Bronx.
According to the company, it will serve up the pizza with a touch of Italian flair, which is expected to attract diners from all over the world.
The New York-based company also hopes to sell its signature pizza pies to local markets.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYC Police Commissioner James O’Neill are reportedly behind the plans.
In a statement, de Blasio said:The New York Times reports that the Brooklyn location will feature a bar with Italian-inspired menu items and “a wine bar” as well as a bakery, a wine bar, and “pizza-themed” shops.
The city also announced plans to install a pedestrian bridge between the borough’s boroughs main subway stations.
The Brooklyn location of the pizza hut will be the first to open under Mayor de Blasio’s New York State Food Policy Agenda, according the NYT.
The mayor has long pushed for a pizza hut in New York, and he is set on making it a reality.
In September, the mayor announced a pizza hole at the New Jersey State House in Newark would open its doors on February 2nd, 2019.
