Greek's Pizzeria teams up with Greenfield's Wooden Bear Brewery

Greenfield residents who enjoy pizza are in for a treat.

 

Those are the words of Greek’s Pizzeria owner Danny Webb, who is in the process of finalizing the opening of Greek’s Pizzeria inside Wooden Bear Brewery, 21 West North St., Greenfield.

 

Webb, along with his business partner, Josh Trisler, are bringing back a staple in Greenfield as Greek’s Pizzeria served the Greenfield community previously in the 1980’s. According to Webb, Greek’s Pizzeria is an Indiana-only franchise whose roots date back to 1969 and is currently in 30 locations around the state.

 

He tells Giant FM the idea to open in Greenfield came as the result of looking for a pizza and beer concept.

 

“This new concept involves combining a local pizza option, Greek’s Pizzeria, with a local craft brewery that does not have a permanent food option in-house. Josh played high school football with one of the founders of Wooden Bear Brewery, so it was a logical first place to start this pizza plus beer model,” Webb said.

 

Webb said the restaurant will spend another week or so doing a “soft opening’ with limited hours for dine-in and carry-out.

 

“By mid-November, we expect to be fully open with delivery, carry out and dine-in options inside the Wooden Bear Brewery. It is also worth noting that Wooden Bear Brewery is a family-friendly space, so we are not just for craft beer drinkers. Coke products, wine and cider are also on the beverage menu to compliment our pizza, breadsticks, wings and salads,” Webb told Giant FM.

 

For anyone who hasn’t tasted Greek’s Pizzeria’s food, they are in for a treat Webb says.

 

“Being an Indiana-owned franchise allows each location to work directly with the founder of Greek’s Pizzeria to ensure that our recipes are up to the standards that have been developed for over 50 years. Each location also has the freedom to offer specials and site specific menu items that work for that location,” he said.
