Youngsville ’bout to get LIT. ?
Baton Rouge-based LIT Pizza, owned by GOEat Concepts who also owns Izzo’s Illegal Burrito, is coming soon to the Metairie Center at 208 Centre Sacrelle Boulevard in Youngsville, LA.
Similar to the popular Izzo’s Illegal Burrito, the LIT Pizza concept lets customers create a personalized pizza, cooked-to-order in a wood-burning brick oven, by choosing from more than 50 fresh topping options, five different sauces, several drizzles, and finishes.
The new, 2,300 SF, LIT Pizza restaurant will be the first location outside of the Baton Rouge market with an estimated 30 employees to be hired on from the Youngsville area.
Tentative opening date is set for Spring of 2020.
“We chose Youngsville because it is a vibrant and growing community. Visitors to our Baton Rouge restaurants from the Lafayette area have been asking when we would open a LIT Pizza nearer to them. We’ve been looking at bringing the LIT Pizza concept to Acadiana for a while and we feel the timing is perfect to expand our business,” said Ozzie Fernandez, founder, and CEO of GOEat Concepts. “Since opening our first LIT Pizza in 2016, our goal was to expand this concept to larger and mid-sized markets in Louisiana. We are excited Youngsville is the first of what we expect to be several new locations planned in the Lafayette area.”
LIT Pizza currently has six locations in the Baton Rouge area, with an additional location scheduled to open before the end of the year. Fernandez recently announced plans for several more LIT Pizza restaurants across Louisiana and neighboring states.
