A wood-fired pizzeria in downtown Boston is expanding a few miles to the south.
According to City of Quincy consultant and publicist Kerry J. Byrne, Crush Pizza is planning to open in Quincy, with an earlier Instagram post seeming to confirm this. Byrne tells us that the new shop will apparently open in the former Jimmy John's space on Hancock Street in Quincy Center, in the same building that houses The Townshend. (The Quincy location of Jimmy John's closed early last year.) No opening date has been given as of yet, so stay tuned for updates.
Crush Pizza first opened on State Street in Boston's Financial District in late 2013 where a location of Upper Crust had once been; the pizzeria features wood-fired pies that are cooked at a temperature of 1000 degrees.
The address for the upcoming location of Crush Pizza is 1250 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA, 02169. The website for the Boston shop can be found at https://crushpizza.com/
