Rapid Fired Pizza is opening its first Columbus, Ohio, location. The former Guernsey Bank regional office at 782 S. State Street in Westerville, Ohio, will soon be replaced with the new Rapid Fired store. The restaurant will feature a 3200-square-foot interior space with an indoor seating capacity of more than 90 guests, with additional outside patio seating.

“We love that the location is close to neighborhoods, office, and shopping, which is the trifecta for Rapid Fired Pizza,” says Kelly Gray, co-founder.

The franchise will be locally owned and operated by franchisee group member Nathan Liggett. 

“I have always wanted to open a concept that fits who I am,” Liggett says. “I am a huge Ohio State fan and always dreamed of owning a business in Columbus. It’s a place I want to raise my kids one day. Bringing a concept that I love to a city I love only made sense. We want Columbus to experience amazing pizza cooked in 180 seconds.”

Rapid Fired Pizza allows customers to choose from an 11-inch thin or 9-inch pan pizza, eight sauces, eight cheeses, more than thirty toppings, and fourteen dipping sauces, along with ten craft pizzas on the menu.

The pizza brand now has 16 stores either open or under construction, with an additional 13 locations in process to begin development.
