Founded by two brothers from the blue-collar streets of Detroit, Via 313’s famous “square” pizzas uses handmade dough baked fresh daily. The square pizzas are actually rectangular in shape and baked in metal trays, “just like the ones used on the automotive assembly lines at the Big Three.”
The shop was named one of the “Top 10 Pizzas in America” by Food Network, “One of the Very Best Pizzas” by Food and Wine Magazine, and “Independent Pizzeria of the Year” by Pizza Today.
“We may be from Michigan and started our brand in Texas, but Utah feels like a second home for us,” said Co-Founder Brandon Hunt. “Riverton will mark our fourth restaurant in the Beehive State and it’s truly because of the love and support pizza lovers here have given Via 313 from the moment we arrived. Who knew so many people out west would love Detroit-style pizza as much as my brother Zane and I?!”
The new Riverton location is also hiring up to 100 employees to run the new shop. Positions at both the front and back of the house are available.
The new restaurant is located at 13222 S. Tree Sparrow Drive, Ste. R180.
