Rapid Fired Pizza continues its rapid expansion

Rapid Fired Pizza to celebrate grand opening with 500 free pizzas

Rapid Fired will open its newest location tomorrow, Monday Jan. 30, at 1487 Wagner Ave in Greenville. Then on the following day, on Tuesday Jan. 31, the new restaurant will give away 500 pizzas on a first-come, first-served basis.

“We are asking customers to dress warm, because the waiting line will probably be wrapped around the building like it was in Kettering four weeks ago,” Rapid Fired co-founder Ray Wiley said in a release.

Rapid Fired restaurants have a quick-service concept, utilizing a serving line in which customers pick out the toppings for their 11-inch thin-crust or 9-inch pan pizza. Customers can choose from eight sauces, eight cheeses, more than 30 toppings and 14 dipping sauces to build their pizza. The pie is then cooked to order in just under three minutes in a high-temperature oven.
