Mozzeria, a popular Neapolitan-style pizza restaurant, announced on Facebook it will open a second location in Washington, D.C., in 2020, making the pizzeria a national franchise!

According to Mozzeria, construction on the new location will begin in fall 2019 in anticipation of a spring 2020 opening. Hiring is expected to begin in early 2020. The search for an additional location in Austin is ongoing.
