Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom recently opened its first restaurant in the Carolinas, located in downtown Chapel Hill. The location marks the first Old Chicago restaurant to be built from the ground-up since launching its new expansive menu and design concept.
Introducing Chicago-style pizza along with an expansive menu, Old Chicago also brings its craft beer enthusiasm to Chapel Hill by showcasing up to eight local beers at any given time. Featuring a draft system with 36 beers on tap, this ensures the highest quality beer delivery system available today and a comprehensive “TaproomGuide” that lists all the restaurant’s beer offerings.
The 6,800-square-foot restaurant, including outside and patio dining, also features 16 televisions for prime sports viewing, while providing 80 new jobs in the local economy.
“As the first Old Chicago restaurant in the Carolinas, the Chapel Hill opening represents not only a commitment to expansion into new markets, but also into our new menu, restaurant design, and elevated guest experience,” said Will Powers, Senior Director of Marketing, Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom. “We look forward to exploring additional expansion into the Southeast.”
Four to six Old Chicago restaurants are scheduled to be built this year and 15 more planned in 2015.
