Brixx Wood Fired Pizza to Stoke the Fires in BirminghamBrixx Wood Fired Pizza is bringing the heat to Alabama. Its first Alabama location will open just outside Birmingham in Hoover’s Patton Creek retail center in 2015. This joins several new openings for the Charlotte, NC-based concept, which include Colorado, Indiana, Illinois and Virginia next year.

Birmingham restaurateurs Russell Pate and Courtney Mason of Rolling Dough, LLC, will own and manage the new 3,500-square-foot restaurant, which will employ approximately 45 people. This is their first Brixx franchise.

“We’re thrilled to work with seasoned restaurant operators like Russell and Courtney to bring Brixx to Alabama,” said Neil Newcomb, principal of Brixx Franchise Systems, LLC. “We’re confident the Birmingham community is a perfect fit for us, and that they’ll love our wood fired pizzas, salads, craft beers on tap and wines by the glass. “

Pate and Mason agree. “We were attracted to the passion Brixx brings to its food and guest service,” said Pate. “Brixx makes its signature pizza dough, focaccia and fresh mozzarella from scratch every morning. Guests can taste that quality on the plate and we’re looking forward to being a part of that.”
