Pizza Hotline Stone Fire Pizzeria
- E70 - 360 Main Street
If you thought Pizza Hotline – with its memorable 222-2222 jingle and late-night delivery service – couldn’t get any more convenient, think again.
Pizza Hotline introduced its latest concept, a fast-casual style bistro, Pizza Hotline Stone Fired Pizzeria, at Winnipeg Square.
“It’s our new experience that we’re rolling out,” says director of communications and marketing for Pizza Hotline, Jeff Schultz. “Fresh ingredients, and premium toppings, made right in front of you.”
Seizing on a trend toward authentic, Neapolitan style pizza and fast-casual dining, Pizza Hotline Stone Fired Pizzeria produces the upscale pizza in just 180 seconds cook time – so, from the moment you order at the counter to the moment the high-end pizza hits your lips, five or six minutes may pass.
If this isn’t quick enough, Pizza Hotline offers the opportunity to pre-order lunch through its app or website, so you can pick up your pizza and take it back to your desk, or further expedite your lunch break.
Pizza Hotline Stone Fired Pizzeria even lets you build your own pizza for a fixed price – meaning all the toppings you want, without any extra charges. Group orders can also be accommodated at the site, supplying ‘saucy little numbers’ for your next lunch meeting.
Although the fast-casual environment helps meet fast-food style wait times, you can also choose to linger over your meal a little longer, as the pizzeria is licensed. Down to the higher end finishes in the renovated space, Pizza Hotline Stone Fired Pizzeria is inviting guests to indulge a little – even if it’s for a short time.
“It’s really geared toward the millennials, who are looking for that different experience,” says Schultz.
In addition to capturing the imaginations of the millennial set, Pizza Hotline Stone Fired Pizzeria sought its Winnipeg Square location to get in front of the “eyes of the business community,” says Schultz.
This crowd has kept the location busy throughout its lunch rush – and helped prove the Stone Fired Pizzeria concept viable enough to introduce it in other markets, such as in Selkirk, Manitoba and in other city locations on Keewatin Street and Roblin Boulevard.
While the pizzerias’ stone ovens are the same at Pizza Hotline’s Café 22 locations – Pizza Hotline Stone Fired Pizzerias are meant to provide an ambience somewhere between a Pizza Hotline takeout order and the more formal dining setting at Café 22s.
However, wait staff is on-hand at Pizza Hotline Stone Fired Pizzeria as well – so you can always ask them for seconds.
Pizza Hotline Stone Fired Pizzeria is open in Winnipeg Square Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
