Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, a traditional casual dining restaurant known for its handmade pizza and craft beers, announced that its newest location is slated to open in Katy, Texas, at 24515 Katy Freeway, Suite 100. The new restaurant, scheduled to open on October 26, will be the city’s first location and will create around 120 jobs for the area. To celebrate the upcoming opening, Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom has partnered with Target Hunger, which works to alleviate hunger and its root causes in the neighborhoods they serve, and will donate proceeds from its preview events on October 23-24 to the organization.
“Katy residents are in for a treat as we prepare to introduce them to our freshly hand-made pizza, diverse menu of world-class craft beers and quality, handcrafted taproom classics,” says Scott Wilson, general manager of Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom in Katy. “We’re proud to partner with Target Hunger to celebrate Old Chicago’s opening and we look forward to becoming a favorite dining destination for local residents and businesses in the Katy community.”
