Mountain Mike’s Pizza announced the opening of its first location in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. Located in Plaza Antonio near Pavilions, this newest Mountain Mike’s makes the brand’s signature experience of enjoying “Pizza the Way it Oughta Be” even more accessible to South Orange County locals. Owned by South County residents and longtime friends, Annie and Garrett Beck along with Sean and Casey Calcagnie, the group is thrilled to bring Mountain Mike’s to their old stomping grounds! With more than 230 locations throughout the western U.S., this marks the fourth location in Orange County where Mountain Mike’s Franchise Support Center is also based.

“We grew up in the area and have deep roots in this community, and now with families of our own, bringing Mountain Mike’s to Rancho Santa Margarita has truly been a full circle moment for us,” says Annie and Garrett. “We’re happy to invite our new neighbors in to experience Mountain Mike’s through dine-in or on our large patio, takeout, and contactless delivery. So, swing by to dig into our famous pizzas, like our legendary Mountain-sized pepperoni pizza covered with 200 crispy, curly mini pepperonis.”

The expansive 4,642 sq. ft. restaurant offers the welcoming environment that Mountain Mike’s is known for and features the brand’s latest restaurant design just introduced last summer. With both an indoor and outdoor bar serving a 20-tap selection of local beers, an outdoor patio, arcade area, and 10 big screen TVs throughout, the Rancho Santa Margarita Mountain Mike’s is an ideal spot for sports fans, team parties, family gatherings and group fundraising events alike. All signature pizzas are made with high-quality ingredients like real 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese and dough that’s made fresh in-house daily. Whether it’s dine-in, carry-out or contactless delivery, guests can always count on Mountain Mike’s to deliver on safety, freshness, quality and value. Orders may also be placed through any of Mountain Mike’s third-party delivery partners, DoorDash, Grubhub, Uber Eats and Postmates.

“We realized that RSM was in need of a restaurant like Mountain Mike’s where friends, families and sports teams could gather and celebrate over some really amazing pizza,” say Sean and Casey. “We’re proud to join the RSM community and are looking forward to creating delicious memories with our new guests for many years to come.”
