Hawthorne’s NY Pizza coming to Ballantyne in August

Charlotte-based Hawthorne’s New York Pizza & Bar announced today it will open its fifth full-service location in the Charlotte-metro region. The new store will be located in Ballantyne at the Village at Robinson Farm at 8410 Rea Rd. Charlotte, NC 28277.

Following six quarters of steady growth, owners Michael Adams, John Adams and Carlo Martinez are excited to expand the Hawthorne’s concept again.

“We’re shooting for an early August opening,” said Matthew Vincent, Director of Marketing for the local, independently operated restaurant concept. “About a week before the opening we’ll have a free slice day for the community.”

Like any good pizzeria, every Hawthorne’s becomes a hub of community activity and local philanthropy in its surrounding neighborhoods. Hawthorne’s works closely with schools, area non-profits and government agencies. For instance, with coordination from the Mecklenburg County Parks and Recreation department last year, Hawthorne’s co-adopted Independence Park with the Elizabeth Community Association.

On the culinary side of things, Hawthorne’s also differs from local competitors by making its never-frozen dough and sauces from scratch every day in-house. Anchored by a local Charlotte favorite, the $12 18-inch New Yorker cheese pizza, Hawthorne’s guests find a menu that includes plenty of classic Italian-American fare, appetizers, sandwiches, and pastas, plus gluten-free and kids options.

Whether it’s to families searching for a Friday night tradition, commuters seeking quality takeout, foodies who appreciate a truly authentic slice of New York-style pizza, or local craft beer enthusiasts, Hawthorne’s appeals to a variety of diners.

Hawthorne’s expects to begin hiring for the Ballantyne store in the coming weeks. Job seekers should send an email to jobs@hawthornespizza.com to ask about available positions.

The Ballantyne Hawthorne’s will serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week from 11am – 11pm, with later hours kept at the fully stocked bar. For more details visit http://www.HawthornesPizza.com or on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/HawthornesPizza.
