A Myrtle Beach, South Carolina pizza company, Pranzarelli’s Pizza, has opened a Canton Franchise at 3780 Sixes Road.
The location is inside the Texaco Gas Station, but don’t be fooled – this isn’t typical roller or frozen food. I was surprised how big the “kitchen” is with their state of the art baking ovens.
Owner Darshin Dantara said he is excited about bringing restaurant style pizza to his business. He said:
Our pizzas are fresh made to order and never frozen. The sauce is also homemade.
Not only do they carry 15 types of pizza, but you can build your own and they offer speciality items like ziti, wings, and meatballs. The website description is:
Our focus is on the food. With real Italian meats, fresh vegetables, house-made sauce, and freshly shredded mozzarella, all on a crispy, but chewy crust, Pranzarelli’s is everything you expect from a real New York pizzeria.
The pizza is thin crust and I enjoyed my BBQ chicken slice. He offers specials of 2 for $5.00 or 2 for $7.00 speciality slices and both come with a fountain drink. Don’t expect Little Ceasar prices based on the location.
Restaurateur Gregory Pranzo, a Wahlburgers franchisee, partnered with Dantara in launching this concept. The idea is that the fast-casual restaurant will be a free-standing shop within convenience stores or associated food trucks. Pranzo is hoping to expand that concept with bagels in other gas station locations.
With both Wicked Wings, Allesandro’s Cafe and Pizza and Marco’s Pizza close by, the community has another choice in pizza.
