Spicy Pie location planned for Grand Forks
GRAND FORKS - A new pizza shop is coming to south Grand Forks.
Spicy Pie, which has locations in Fargo, West Fargo and Minot, is slated to open in the vacant space next to Noodles and Co. at 3000 32nd Ave. S., according to Duane Wages, a real estate agent for Dakota Commercial & Development Co.
Wages said Monday a lease hadn't been signed, but they were close to a deal. A Facebook page for a Grand Forks Spicy Pie location was created last week, and had more than 1,200 likes by Tuesday morning.
Todd Berning, who is referred to as president of the company that came up with the Spicy Pie concept, was not available for comment early this week.
According to its website, Spicy Pie specializes in New York-style pizza, which means large, thin slices. The restaurant offers single-slice servings and full 18-inch pizzas, and allows customers to customize their own pies. Its menu also includes chicken wings, grinders, tacos, tostadas and salads.
The first Spicy Pie opened in downtown Fargo in 2010, followed by locations near North Dakota State University, Minot State University and West Fargo. The West Fargo location features a full bar, but it's unclear if the Grand Forks restaurant will serve alcohol.
Wages said Spicy Pie owners hope to have construction work begin in about two weeks.
