Brixx Wood Fired Pizza
Brixx Wood Fired Pizza is a fast-casual chain specializing in handcrafted pizzas prepared in wood-burning brick ovens. Units also feature extensive lists of wines, microbrews and dozens of beers on tap. Nightly promotions target repeat customers with free dinners and discount beverages. In addition, Brixx offers drink specials and reward programs for customers who enjoy their microbrews and beers on tap. Eric Horsley, Barbara Bodford-Morgan and Jeff Van Dyke opened the first Brixx Wood Fired Pizza in 1998 in the historic Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina. Steady growth has continued in and around Charlotte, as well as in South Carolina. In early 2007, Brixx formed a partnership with McAlister’s Deli co-founder Neil Newcomb to launch Brixx Franchise Systems LLC.
