Firenza Pizza, an innovative restaurant brand touting “Pizza Like Never Before,” is opening its newest restaurant in Secaucus, New Jersey.
Located at 700 Plaza Drive, the new restaurant specializes in hand-crafted, made-to-order pizza and is celebrating its grand opening in March. In honor of the grand opening, Firenza of Secaucus will offer a 10-inch pizza for $5 when the guest downloads the Firenza Pizza app. For every $5 pizza purchased, the restaurant will donate $2 to the York Street Project, whose mission is to help women and children break the cycle of poverty.
In addition, the first 10 people in line on March 9 will win free pizza for a year – two free 10-inch pizzas per month for 12 months.
The location is owned by Hyacinth Dyogi and Jon Chan. Both established in their own right, the couple is excited for their newest endeavor. Hyacinth received her master’s of business administration from Rutgers Business School and works as an engineer; while Jon is a financial planning and analysis manager, and received his master’s of business administration from NYU Stern.
“Three years ago, we started a journey to follow our dreams and become small business owners. We fell in love with Firenza Pizza and wanted to bring it to New Jersey,” says Hyacinth. “At Firenza, only the highest quality ingredients are used to create our pizza. We are proud to be part of an awesome brand and cannot wait to share the amazing food experience with our community.””
Firenza specializes in truly hand crafted and made-to-order pizzas that can be customized with nearly 40 fresh toppings including house roasted garlic and your favorite meats. For those customers who don’t want to create their pizzas from scratch, Firenza also offers ten chef-inspired signature pies ranging from the Primavera Fresca loaded with healthy vegetables, the Big Kahuna featuring smoked ham, bacon and tropical pineapple or the award-winning Chipotle Chicken topped with crema and fresh pico de gallo. Once the pizzas are assembled, they’re baked in an open flame stone-hearth oven and guaranteed to be done within five minutes
While convenience and price are important selling points, the priority for Firenza is phenomenal pizza. “Our pizza dough is hand-stretched right in front of the guest, so toppings don’t slide off, allowing you to enjoy your delicious creation and getting a taste of all your carefully selected toppings in every bite. It’s one of my favorite aspects of Firenza Pizza,” Jon says.
In addition to pizza, the restaurant offers diners oven fired pasta, customizable salads, oven baked wings, home-style meatballs, breadsticks, and more.
