Pizzeria chain expanding to Kailua, Aiea


    The Pieology Pizzeria chain will expand with two new locations this year in Kailua and Pearlridge Center.

The Pieology Pizzeria chain will expand with a minimum of two new locations this year, in Kailua and in Pearlridge Center in Aiea, the company has announced.

The franchised, build-your-own pizza chain is operated in Hawaii by Cotti Foods, which will open is next locations at 151 Hekili Street, across from Target in Kailua, and in Pearlridge, it will be next to Sears.

The Kailua location is set to open in the summer, while the company continues to plan additional locations across the state.

The first location, in Aina Haina, has broken internal Pieology records with its successful launch, according to a company statement.

“We are so grateful to the people of Hawaii for embracing Pieology the way they have,” said Cotti Foods’ president Peter Capriotti II. He pledged to continue supporting the community with such efforts as a $10,000 donation to Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui’s R.E.A.C.H. Out Hawaii program, providing academic support to students in 6th through 8th grade.

Cotti Foods is based in California and operates 62 Taco Bell restaurants on the mainland, and 43 Wendy’s restaurants, including seven in Hawaii.

Capriotti told the Star-Advertiser in July of 2015 that he had exclusive rights to develop 20 Pieology locations in Hawaii.
