“We are excited to bring our new location to Independence.  Being the Craft Beer Authority is allowing us to bring in some of the most unique beers available from some of the best national and local breweries.  Since 1976 we’ve been serving handcrafted pizzas, made from scratch, every day. That is expertise you can taste!” states General Manager Bruce Harris of the restaurant opening.

More importantly, one restaurant staple that will not be on the menu is their strong commitment to giving back to its community. Not only will Old Chicago be joining the restaurant scene in Independence, but it will also be joining the city’s commitment to offer its residents a better and brighter future by partnering with the Great Plains SPCA.  Representatives from the Great Plains SPCA will be on-site during all three of Old Chicago’s pre-opening dinners to spread the word and help raise charitable contributions.  In addition, Old Chicago will donate $1 from every Chicago 7 sold from 10/31-11/14 will be added to the Great Plains SPCA donation.
