HOUSTON, Tx (BRPROUD) — Fat Boy’s Pizza is making its second interstate move, opening several locations in the Greater Houston area, one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the United States.

The first Houston-area Fat Boy’s Pizza will be located at The Grand at Alaina, W. Grand Parkway S. and W. Airport Blvd., in Richmond. It will fill 4,800 square feet and feature a 1,500 square foot covered patio that opens up to green space.

“Pizza is meant to be shared together by family and friends,” Thomas Nguyen, the Houston- area broker for Fat Boy’s Pizza, said. “With its huge patio, kids area and expansive bar, Fat Boy’s Pizza has created the perfect environment for that experience.”

Fat Boy’s Pizza is known for its eye-popping 30 inch pies, delectable appetizers, and full bars that includes premium daiquiris available by the gallon.

The Louisiana chain is planning to open new locations in Mandeville and New Orleans.
