After many months of displaying a “coming soon” banner, Yellow Cab Pizza Co. will stage its grand opening a week from today, after an 11 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The Philippines-based chain, established in 2001, is owned by Max’s Group Inc., and is a sister-restaurant to Max’s of Manila which also is located in the Costco Iwilei complex at 801 Dillingham Blvd. at Alakawa Street.
The new pizza restaurant is located in spaces formerly occupied by Quiznos and Wallpaper & Finer Things and will seat 90 guests. Delivery also will be offered via Bite Squad, rather than the Yellow Cab-branded scooters that deliver meals in the Philippines.
Yellow Cab Pizza serves New York-style pizzas, pasta dishes and appetizers, and will offer coffee and espresso drinks as well as beer and wine. The interior includes big-screen televisions for customer viewing.
Teriyaki Boy, another Max’s Group sister-concept that operates in the Philippines, has been registered with the state, though details about its location and opening have not been announced.
Following the grand opening, Yellow Cab Pizza will operate from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
