One of Dayton’s newest pizza destinations to reopen this week

Yet another Dayton institution is reopening to the public this week.

On Tuesday, June 9, at 4 p.m., the Old Scratch Pizza location in Centerville will open its dining room, allowing customers to come in and grab a slice (or three) of their cult-status pizza. The downtown location is set to open the following day, on Wednesday, June 10, at 4 p.m.

The restaurant announced their reopening on Instagram Monday night.

To comply with state guidelines, the restaurants have opened up their floor plans to have less seating and more space for social distancing. Plexiglas is also installed around high-contact zones to protect staff members and other patrons. Additionally, all employees will be wearing masks, and hand sanitizer will be available for all customers.

Long lines will be avoided at both locations with the implementation of a wait list at the door that can be joined with your phone. This way, guests won’t have to wait inside the restaurant to order their pizza, and will instead receive a text message when their table is ready.

Curbside carryout will still be available once the restaurants reopen, though the owners ask that customers do not arrive early, as it will be harder to find a place to park (particularly at the downtown location) and to practice social distancing. Orders for curbside carryout can be placed on Old Scratch Pizza’s website.
