Light bulb moments are beautiful things.
In the case of Brixx Wood Fired Pizza, the light bulb went on while Operating Partner Eric Horsley was skiing in Colorado. Heading back to Charlotte, Eric shared his idea with Managing Partners Jeff Van Dyke and Barbara Bodford-Morgan. Together they conceived of a restaurant that applied fine dining techniques and quality to casual, everyday food. Love of great pizza with a good beer is universal. So the goal was to keep it simple and fun but add a unique style.
But, how do you stand apart from the competition big and small? Simple: just add fire.
Our brick ovens enhance the natural flavors of our quality ingredients, giving our pizza that amazing, wood-fired taste. We also bake focaccia bread each day for our delectable sandwiches. We also embrace how inventive you can be with pizza, appealing to a wide range if palates and dietary needs. We offer vegan and vegetarian options, whole-wheat crust and gluten-free menu items. We think everyone should be able to enjoy a slice of pizza when they want.
Finally, by offering local and national craft beers and microbrews with a great wine selection, Brixx gives you a fresh alternative to “pizza and beer.”
The first Brixx Wood Fired Pizza opened in 1998 in the historic Dilworth neighborhood. And, we’ve never turned back. We have more than 30 locations in the Southeast, and franchise opportunities for more.
Your neighborhood place.
It’s not just about pizza. We also care about the community. We recycle everything possible, and most of our beers are on tap to eliminate waste. We also give back to the community by sponsoring local and national charities. When we open in a neighborhood, we get to know our neighbors. When they need a hand, we’re there to help. That’s something Eric, Jeff and Barbara have insisted on from jump. And, we take it to heart.
