New Via 313 in Riverton celebrates grand opening
Riverton— Over a decade ago, Via 313 opened up as just a small food truck operating on the streets of Austin. While the food truck stayed in Texas, the award-winning pizzeria has captured the appetite of the Beehive State and recently opened its newest Via 313 in Riverton.
To celebrate, the award-winning pizzeria invited the local community to join the Via 313 team, Mayor Trent Staggs and the Riverton Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and is now serving the community at 13222 S. Tree Sparrow Dr., Ste. R180 in the Mountain View Village shopping center.
“We’re thrilled to continue growing in Utah,” said Co-Founder Brandon Hunt. “We’re honored to share our Detroit-style pizza everywhere we go, and we’re excited to have it in Riverton. We’re so grateful for the warm reception from the community at the grand opening and hope everyone comes and discovers their new favorite pizza spot.”
The Riverton location marks Via 313’s fourth in Utah and 11th systemwide. The store’s operating hours are Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Via 313 exists so more people around the country can enjoy the pizza that’s beloved in Detroit. The pizzas are called square, but they’re actually rectangle and baked in metal trays, just like the ones used on the automotive assembly lines at the Big Three. But instead of being filled with metal parts, Via 313’s trays are filled with the finest pizza ingredients it can source. To learn more about Via 313 or to view the full menu, visit via313.com.
