&Pizza Slated to Open February 3

&Pizza is slated to open its upcoming location at Central Apartments in downtown Silver Spring on Wednesday, February 3, according to company spokeswoman Katie Case.

We reported in November that buildout and hiring had begun toward a winter opening for the upcoming &Pizza location at Central apartments, located at the corner of Wayne Avenue and Fenton Street.

The fast-casual chain was founded in 2012 in Washington, D.C., and lists 28 outlets in the district, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, and Massachusetts. The Silver Spring store, which will be its fifth Montgomery County location, is expected to be its newest prototype, according to Julie Chase, a representative of developer Grosvenor Americas.

Interested applicants can text #CAREERS to 200-03 to begin the application process, and &Pizza fans can text #IMTHERE to 200-03 for a chance to win a free pizza on opening day.

&Pizza and the previously-announced Lifestyles Nail Bar will join existing Central tenants Pure Barre, Orangetheory Fitness, and El Sapo Cuban Social Club.
