Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, known for its hand-crafted pizza, taproom fare, and its world class beer list of local and regional craft beer offerings, opened its newest location at 1400 North 795 East, Logan, Utah on October 28. This store opening will be the first Old Chicago in Utah, and the 109th location nationwide.

Guests can order five hand-crafted dough options, including Chicago Thick, a Tavern Thin, Bottoms- Up Deep Dish, a Gluten-Free crust, and an Ale-Infused dough that highlight the eleven specialty pizzas on the menu. Famous taproom starters such as the Sicilian Pepperoni Rolls, and the one-of-a-kind Italian Nachos will also be sure to delight guests in Logan. With 40 draft beers available, more than 90 craft beers available on the menu and a beer expert always on staff, The Craft Beer Authority has something for everyone.

True to its roots is Old Chicago’s strong commitment to giving back to the community. Old Chicago Logan has partnered with Cache Community Food Pantry, where they will be raising money during their pre-opening events from October 24 through October 26 to benefit the local nonprofit. Representatives from Cache Community Food Pantry will be on-site to help raise charitable contributions. In addition, Old Chicago will donate $1 from every Chicago 7 Pizza sold from October 28 to December 1 to the local food pantry.

To celebrate the upcoming opening, Old Chicago Logan will be offering free pizza for a year to the first 100 guests on opening day (doors open at 11 a.m. on Monday, October 28, 2019).

“It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Old Chicago family; we are thrilled to bring the Craft Beer Authority to Logan and the state of Utah,” says Thad Willis, co-owner of WD Ventures, LLC, a franchisee group that has plans to open additional Old Chicago locations in Utah and southern Idaho. “We are excited to open our first OC location across from the Utah State University campus. We are eager for our guests to experience our new store, and the great food, beer, and the crafted experience of Old Chicago.”

“We are thrilled to be working closely with Tom and Thad (Willis, co-owners of WD Ventures, LLC) and Andy (Daniels, co-owner of WD Ventures, LLC) along with their team as they open their first of many Old Chicago restaurants,” says Mark A. Belanger, president, Global Franchise Development, CraftWorks Holdings, (operating company of Old Chicago). “As we continue to seek franchise partners to execute our strategic growth plans, it’s exciting to have a partner that is growing in a new state for our brand. We will continue to seek strong franchisees, excited to grow our brand in new areas, including hotel partners, as a vital component in further OC national expansion in 2020 and beyond.”
