Two Boots Pizza Rapidly Expanding Metro New York City Footprint
Two Boots Pizza—the popular New York-based pizzeria with 17 locations in 6 states—has emerged as one the fastest growing pizza chains in the US.
With that explosive growth has come a focus on expansion in the Tri-State area. This week the firm has signed a 12-year lease for their Lower Manhattan flagship at 86A Nassau Street, near Fulton Street. In addition, Two Boots is scheduled to open Wednesday its approximately 1,600-square-foot pizzeria at 717 Atlantic St., Stamford CT in the new Metro Green mixed-use development, a block from the downtown Metro-North train station.
“Two Boots Pizza had been looking in Lower Manhattan for years because they recognized that this was becoming a true seven-day neighborhood and they could provide a valuable service for the growing residential community,” said Winick Realty Group Director Aaron S. Fishbein, represented both Two Boots Pizza and landlord 86A ½ Nassau LLC along with his associate, Jeremy Wintner.
Previously a clothing store, the former tenants of 86A Nassau Street only utilized the building’s ground floor, leaving the second floor—with a hidden deco ceiling—abandoned for more than 20 years. Construction has already started on the property, as Two Boots Pizza is working closely with building ownership, spearheaded by Theresa Veltri, to fully restore the structure, bringing out the beauty in its classic architecture.
“We’re incredibly excited about both the building and the neighborhood,” said Two Boots Pizza owner Phil Hartman, “and we look forward to bringing our unique Cajun-Italian pizza and funky folk art deep into the heart of the financial district.” Plans include a pizzeria on the ground floor and a cozy bar/lounge on the second floor—plus the potential for rooftop seating. Added Wintner, “This one-of-a-kind property will give them an amazing Downtown presence.”
